Swimming pool dehumidification solutions

​The challenge

Atmospheric air contains moisture which when left unchallenged can lead to mould or possible structural damage or collapse.

Why dehumidify?

An indoor swimming pool is a wonderful leisure and exercise environment but the evaporation from the water surface poses real problems for the building structure. Prolonged exposure to high humidity causes walls, decorative finishes and roofs to deteriorate rapidly. Personal comfort is also of prime importance. High humidity causes personal discomfort and unless the environment is controlled, bathers will be prevented from enjoying the swimming pool. Bathers appreciate comfortable humidity in the range 55%-65%.

Condensation

Left unchallenged, it can be a major problem in indoor swimming pools and spas. Condensation, formed as water evaporating from the pool or spa surface, pushes up air humidity and can eventually lead to mould or even structural damage or collapse. In the past, the conventional approach to combating condensation came in the form of wasteful air extraction from the pool hall. Nowadays, the science of humidity control has moved into another realm. The advanced range of Dantherm Group dehumidifiers provide an efficient and economical solution.

How a dehumidifier works

The process of dehumidification involves moisture-laden air being drawn into a dehumidifier where the air passes across a refrigerated coil. The air is rapidly cooled below its dew point, condensing the water vapour and recovering its latent heat energy for re-use. The cooled air is then passed across the condenser where it is reheated and returned to the served area at the required lower relative humidity.

Problems

The problems caused by excess moisture include corrosion, building deterioration, uncomfortable environment, condensation, damp, mould and mildew and misting.

The solution

The answer to this problem is the our range of purpose built, stylish dehumidifiers for humidity control and energy recovery in indoor swimming pools.

Our products

High-performance low-cost dehumidifiers minimise the need for costly air extraction. Operating on the heat pump principle, these high-performance units recirculate pool air – removing the moisture content and delivering warm, dry air back to the pool hall. By working in this way, they maintain a comfortable humidity, minimise condensation and keep heating costs at the lowest possible level.

Rapid installation, flexible operation

Fully self-contained units, our dehumidifiers require minimal installation. When it comes to operation, units offer quiet, reliable and safe performance. Flexibility is built-in. Each unit comes with a specially styled barrel type discharge that allows air to be directed in an 80° range between horizontal and vertical, thus allowing installation at high or low level.*

Energy saving

Removing humidity from the air enables the dehumidifier to absorb latent energy and return it to the pool air as useful air heating. Its heat pump technology converts 2.5kW to air heating for every 1kW of electricity consumed – a real bonus for running costs! So that the best choice can be made, a full range of units is available. Each is supplied with full installation kits, and sound insulation. Our range includes wall mounted and floor standing units.

Low temperature operation

Your pool hall still needs protection when you aren’t using it, but economy dictates that you drop the air heating levels when you are away. The defrost versions operate down to temperatures just above freezing to ensure moisture control even in cold conditions.
