How to Configure a Dehumidifier for a Pool15 May
During the summer, the air temperature is particularly high, which can lead to high indoor humidity and a depressed atmosphere. If the indoor water temperature reaches 83°F, every 100 square meters of water will evaporate within an hour. This means that a typical pool would evaporate 250 kilograms of water every hour.
Hazards of High Humidity in Swimming Pools
Staying in an indoor, high-humidity swimming pool can be uncomfortable, and the subtropical climate can even cause cardiovascular problems.
This climate promotes the growth of mold, which causes nerve and endocrine disorders, immune system suppression, liver and kidney injuries, and even fertility issues.
Mold can also affect the integrity of aging buildings, creating a need for expensive renovations that may lead to a disruption to regular business operations.
How Much Humidity Is Appropriate For a Swimming Pool?
The ideal relative humidity in a pool room would be between 60% and 65%. If it reaches more than 70%, that means that the air is filled with water vapor, which can be pretty uncomfortable. If humidity levels drop below 60%, the air is too dry for swimmers to feel comfortable when they are out of the water.
Humidity plays a key role in indoor swimming pool air quality. Therefore, we must accurately control the indoor relative humidity according to the initial investment, operating cost, maintenance team, and room location to select the most appropriate equipment for the area.
How to Choose the Right Dehumidifier?
The first factor to consider is the surface area of the pool. This gives an estimate of how many liters of water vapor are produced per day. This number is then compared with the output of various dehumidifiers. Perhaps a large, powerful dehumidifier can handle all of the moisture, but from a practical standpoint, in order to carry out a more comprehensive dehumidification process, it is recommended that you use two smaller, powerful dehumidifiers.
