Technologies: Indoor Pool Dehumidification

Indoor Pool Dehumidification

Poolrooms consisting of indoor swimming pools, also called natatoriums, suffer from excess moisture buildup when pool water is warmed to swimming temperatures. This moisture is full of indoor air contaminants, such as chlorine or bromine disinfectants, and can cause serious mold and mildew problems if not removed. Therefore, poolroom dehumidification is critical to protect people’s health and the integrity of a building’s infrastructure.

However, natatorium dehumidification can be costly, and conventional systems are prone to inefficiencies and extra costs. How is it possible to design energy-efficient indoor pool dehumidification systems? The answer is by using PoolPak technologies, which are the best and most innovative on the market today for dehumidification of large athletic pools, natatoriums in schools and universities, commercial pools and hotel/motel leisure pools.

PoolPak’s products are suitable for any application where humidity is a concern. For instance, the Agronomic IQ line of humidity and temperature control equipment is designed specifically for grow rooms. This product line provides agricultural indoor grow facilities with the most precise, stable and reliable temperature and humidity control possible – all while leveraging energy-recycling systems for both room heating and cooling as required.

    Replacement Services

    The value of indoor space is high, and quite frequently large specialized HVAC equipment, such as dehumidifiers, are initially installed in mechanical areas with limited or no access. When the equipment reaches the end of its useful life, system replacement can be an expensive and labor-intensive challenge. However, PoolPak’s build-on-site process makes dehumidifier replacement easy and less expensive.

      Build-on-Site Program

      PoolPak developed the Build-on-Site Program to overcome the obstacle of installation in tight or inaccessible spaces by sizing, building and testing systems on site. Build-on-Site is not just a factory unit partially disassembled and installed in sections – it’s the complete assembly of the PoolPak dehumidification system on site. Site-built units retain all warranties and are constructed from the frame up by highly qualified PoolPak technicians using component parts shipped from the factory.

      Significant Cost Savings

      A PoolPak site-built installation can save thousands of dollars in avoided construction expenses. It eliminates building modifications, such as wall and roof removal in order to access the mechanical room. In addition, reconstruction costs are nonexistent and site preparation is reduced. All PoolPak component parts fit through standard 30” doorways, and crane rental and rigging are no longer required.

      No Installation Delays

      A PoolPak dehumidifier will be completely installed and operational in as little as three days using the Build-on-Site Program. That means your indoor pool facility will be fully operational and ready for swimmers with minimal loss in revenue. There is also little disruption of facility activities during the construction period.
