At indoor swimming pools, water
evaporates because of ambient conditions, pool surface area and pool
activities. As a result, bacteria that
form in the environment threaten human health and the structure is damaged due
to high humidity. Therefore, humidity control at indoor swimming pools where
intensive humidity occurs is highly important for facility users in terms of
necessary hygienic conditions, human health and lifetime of building.
Why Humidity Occurs in Indoor Swimming Pool Areas?
If partial pressure of water vapor of ambient air is below saturation temperature then evaporation occurs on surface of pool water. Ambient air temperature and relative humidity, pool water temperature, ambient air movements and pool usage type affects evaporation.
