Calculating right size of dehumidifier for swimming pool needs expertise. Also selecting right type of indoor pool room dehumidifier also important. In this article we will discuss factors affecting swimming pool dehumidifier calculation. We need to note here that if pool dehumidification unit for indoor pool is sized more than capacity what it is needed then not only it will increase initial equipment cost but also it will increase recurring operating cost. And if indoor pool dehumidifier sizing done on lower side then unit will not give you desired performance. Hence dehumidifier for indoor pool rooms needs to be size perfectly considering various factors which we are going to discus in this article.
Why Dehumidifier for swimming pool needed?
This is very common question which has been answered many time in this blog. Precisely only indoor pools needs humidity control. In indoor swimming pool large water surface is exposed to indoor air. When air passed over this water, humidity level of air increase. Also due to this large water surface, evaporation takes place which increase humidity level in room. Hence pool room humidity control equipment needed. High humidity in pool area causes lots of issued to you and your property. Recently I visited a indoor pool in private villa Jumeirah area of Dubai. As soon as I entered pool room, bad smell told me that indoor pool dehumidification systems not installed there. Owner spec huge money to decorate ceiling and wall but due to high humidity there were yellow spot on ceiling and wall. Plaster of wall was pilling over. legs of metal chair which were placed in that indoor pool room was rusted. These were symptoms of absence of indoor swimming pool humidity control arrangement. More than damage to our infrastructure, we should more concern about damage to our health due to high humidity. And effect of high humidity on our health will not that much noticeable but yet it is there. If spore of fungus and mold which develops due to high humidity enters into your respiratory system then it can cause serious deceases. You will exposed to many types of allergies.
Factor affecting Pool dehumidification System capacity.
You can find online many indoor pool dehumidification calculator but with these you can not size dehumidification unit correctly since each indoor pool site always unique and which need different approach all together. However if you like to calculate size roughly them you need to consider major factor that affecting swimming pool dehumidification calculation. Lest see these factors one by one:
- Indoor swimming pool size: Humidity added by pool into air is directly proportional to surface area of indoor pool. If pool surface area is more then rate of evaporation will be more and you need higher capacity of indoor pool dehumidifier system.
- Pool water temperature: If swimming pool water is hot then evaporation will take place at high rate and humidity level in indoor pool room will increase. Humidity level in indoor pool room and hence capacity of dehumidification unit is directly proportional to temperature of swimming pool water.
- Room Temperature: Dehumidification at lower temperature need high capacity dehumidifier. Also if room is too cold and swimming pool water is too hot then evaporation of water will be more hence you need higher capacity dehumidifier.
- Activity factor: It is maximum number of occupant in pool at any given time. If number of occupant is room then humidity generated by their body will contribute in humidity level of room. Depending on type of pool like private pool, hotel pool, sport complex pool or therapy pool activity factor will change.
SPD indoor pool dehumidification systems

First mount unit either wall mount or ceiling mount. connect 230V single phase power supply which is available at every place. Power consumption is very less. connect drainage point to drain connection. During dehumidification, unit will convert humidity from air into water which will be drained out through this point. Third connect controller to unit with help of special socket provided. From this controller user can set required humidity level. Unit has fully automatic function. Dehumidifier will run continuously till set humidity get achieved. Once room humidity equals to set humidity, dehumidifier will switch off compressor to save power. If humidity level again increases then again dehumidifier will start automatically. To know more about dehumidifier for swimming pool or pool dehumidification unit then please contact us.
