Protect Your Investment!

If humidity and the condensation it causes are not controlled correctly, it can lead to expensive repair and maintenance costs.  Structure damage occurs when the RH levels reach 62% or above for extended periods of time.  Condensation will form on glass surfaces whenever the temperature of the glass is below the temperature of the air.

Chlorine from pool chemicals reacts with the condensed water to form hydrochloric acid (HCI).  Chlorine laden water vapor not removed from the air can cause serious problems for a pool owner, including:

  • Mold & Mildew
  • Wood Rot
  • Rust on Metal Surfaces
  • Blistering & Peeling of paint

Avoid Common Mistakes Associated With Indoor Swimming Pools:

  • Unbelievable as it may seem, one of the most common mistakes when building an indoor swimming pool is not using dehumidifiers to control the pool environment.  A major misconception is that exhaust fans can control the humidity.  It is impossible to maintain a relative humidity of under 60% (ASHRAE recommended standards) with exhaust/ventilation systems because of the varying outdoor temperature and humidity.
  • Another mistake frequently made is improper dehumidification sizing.  There are 2 major factors to consider when sizing a dehumidifier for an indoor swimming pool:
  1. that the dehumidifiers compressor meets the evaporation rate based on pool size and temperature
  2. air turnover rate based on the cubic feet of space.  The "volume" of the room must be considered to insure adequate air movement

Discover How HI-E Dry Dehumidifiers Can Save You $$$:

  • Energy – Robust HI-E Dry dehumidifiers offer 2 to 3 times more water removal per kilowatt hour of electricity than conventional appliance grade dehumidifiers. The HI-E Dry 195 can remove 183 pints of water per day (80 degrees F and 60% RH) while drawing only 12 amps of electricity. The average annual savings for a 440 square foot pool would be over $1,000.00!
  • Protection – An indoor swimming pool or spa is a considerable investment.  The HI-E Dry line of dehumidifiers protects your investment from damaging mold, wood rot and deterioration of metal structural supports.
  • Low Unit Cost – HI-E Dry dehumidifiers utilize innovative heat transfer technology that greatly improves performance.  This allows HI-E Dry units to have high capacity water removal with smaller refrigeration systems, resulting in lower cost of ownership.
