Indoor Swimming Pools
Indoor Fiberglass Pools
Any type of fiberglass pool or spa can be constructed indoors, and the installations can be as simple as a small pool outfitted with swim current systems to large pools for lap swimming. Many people add changing rooms, showers, exercise facilities, steam rooms, saunas, wet bars and other amenities to their indoor pool installations to create a health spa atmosphere. The possibilities for indoor swimming pool ideas are limited only by imagination and budget.
Indoor Pool Construction
Architecturally, an indoor pool room may look like the rest of the house, but in terms of engineering, it is quite different-especially when it comes to heating, ventilation and choice of building materials, which are key to a long lasting structure and ensuring comfortable humidity levels. In some cases, you can expect to pay as much for the air quality equipment as you do for the pool.
Indoor Pool Ventilation/Humidity Control
Evaporation and humidity can be reduced dramatically by using an automatic pool cover which can cut evaporation by 50 percent. An automatic cover is the most effective tool for reducing dehumidification costs. Along with the added benefits of retaining pool water heat, they provide a 100% barrier to accidents and drowning when closed. They also save on chemical costs and chemical usage when the cover is closed. I would note that one caution is to be careful with automatic chlorine feeders or salt systems be turned down or off when the cover is closed to prevent the buildup of high levels of chlorine which in some cases could create toxic over chlorinated pool water which can burn skin, bleach bathing suits etc…
Indoor Pool Equipment
The type of sanitizer also needs consideration. We have all been to hotels I am sure where you can smell the chlorine from the pool all the way down the hallway. We have found great success in using salt systems to generate natural chlorine while giving the bather a smooth silky feel on the skin without the overpowering odor of chlorine.
