What to Consider When Heating Indoor Swimming Pool Water

Posted by Jim Metzger | Feb 28, 2019 12:56:28 PM | 0 Comments

Indoor pools add value and year-round enjoyment to your property, whether you have one in your hotel, gym, spa, or private residence. Maintaining appropriate water temperature is critical to continued pool satisfaction. Most indoor pool operators heat pool water 2–4°F below the pool room’s air temperature to minimize and control evaporation. They are increasingly using this to their advantage by installing dehumidifiers that channel heat from the refrigeration cycle back into the pool room in the form of space heating or assist in pool water heating.

How Relative Humidity Relates to Room Temperature

Posted by Jim Metzger | Dec 6, 2018 10:34:07 AM | 0 Comments

Relative humidity (RH) is the percent water vapor contained in an environment’s air compared with the maximum amount of water vapor the air can contain at a specific temperature. In general as room temperature rises air can hold more moisture so the resulting RH decreases, and vice versa.
