When you’ve got a pool in an enclosed space, numerous parameters need to be considered such as ventilation, dehumidification, air, water heating and many more.  Having an indoor pool dehumidifier in the area is crucial or you’ll risk mold, corrosion, structural damage and an uncomfortable environment.

The ideal humidity levels for an indoor space are between 60% and 65%. Anything below this, the air will be too dry and unpleasant for swimmers when they’re out of the water. Anything above, the air is too saturated with water vapor, making the environment not only uncomfortable but risky to the enclosure. 

There are two ways to rectify the humidity issue.  Ventilation systems or fans are often used as one method to pump large quantities of air outside to lower the level of humidity. This method is rather energy consuming which drives costs over the roof. A more cost-effective solution to stabilize the environment is by utilizing an indoor pool dehumidifier to protect your facility along with a minor amount of air exhausted outside to help control the chlorine smell. 

Choosing a good quality indoor pool dehumidifier is important and depending on the model unit, dehumidifiers are installed either in the room or in an adjacent mechanical room. The unit can also be installed using one of three methods – ambient, through the wall or ducted, with ambient being the cheapest option and ducted as top of the range.

These units can be installed through the wall in an adjoining room by hooking up ducting to the unit and running it to a wall that joins the area to be dried. With this type of installation, all that’s visible is the intake air grills and the process (dry air) grills.  This offers you a more aesthetic view and an even lower noise level.  It is also an excellent compromise between getting the results you need without a lot of ugly equipment sitting in the room.

Ducted installation is the most effective installation but also the most expensive. It is the only solution that effectively deals with condensation on glass surfaces. Similar to through the wall installations, only the air extractor and blower grills are visible.

Indoor pool dehumidifiers come in different sizes and types to suit different needs. Choosing the right one can save you on maintenance and running costs. For best performance, look for a unit that offers humidity level control as well. To help you find the unit that suits your area best, you need to take into consideration several factors. Some of these are the dimensions of the room to be dried, inside air temperature, inside humidity level and the amount of water in the room just to name a few.

There’s no doubt that the luxury of indoor pools for recreation and fitness can add value to your home. It only makes sense to install an indoor pool dehumidifier not only for comfort, but also essentially to protect your building as high humidity can cause the building to deteriorate.
