Swimming pools require a lot of maintenance as the water from the pool is heated and the heated air releases water vapor which contains moisture. This causes an imbalance in the humidity levels in the pool enclosures and the moisture from the water vapor must be dehumidified to keep the pools in better conditions. In addition to this, as most of the swimming pools are treated with chlorine, the moisture in the water vapor is filled with chlorine particles and is detrimental to the enclosures and even humans when they come in contact with it. These lead to damage of the wall structure, plumbing lines, sedimentation and clogging and slowly damage the pool facility and adjoining structures.
Swimming pool dehumidifiers are designed to solve the challenges of not only absorbing the moisture from the heated water, but also to treat the particles that are laden with chlorine and other treated chemicals used for swimming pool. They are multi-functional units that provide both heating and cooling of the indoor swimming pool facility. These dehumidifiers are entirely automatic and the temperature and humidity levels are controlled by thermostat and humidistat respectively. These automatic controls ensure that the swimming pool is in a much controlled environment that is conducive to maintain the pool and also the facility or infrastructure associated with it. The humidity and the air temperature control results in a stabilized environment.
Dehumidifiers also play a vital role in the water and energy usage. Conventional systems use large amount of water and energy to maintain the pool temperatures which involve huge costs and frequent maintenance. Pool dehumidifiers are designed so that it uses very little air or energy to heat or cool the air and thereby saves a lot of cost in the maintenance of the indoor swimming pools. They recover the energy from the dehumidification process and are recycled to heat the entire pool thus saving operation costs. These dehumidifiers are usually closed loop system with less lubrication and simple maintenance.
