areas need continuous and effective ventilation,
and in an appropriate manner. Fundamental to venting a pool enclosure
is peripheral air entry, approx 400 mm from ground level, and a having
central convergence of the air mass prior to discharging to atmosphere.
The higher the peripheral air ingress, the greater the incidence of
moisture precipitation within the building, especially with a heated
water mass without adequate ventilation.
greater the activity, the higher the humidity levels and the greater
the need for ventilation whether natural or powered ventilation
Flow venting is inefficient
and never appropriate for heated enclosures.The venting of wet area
heated enclosures require continuous air movement, from high flow
to trickle flow.
are a refinement to a theme, but should never be the theme itself,
as they cannot replace fresh air or introduce oxygen as natural ventilation
covering of a heated pool mass is also essential in reducing power
consumption which in turn creates less demand of the ventilation system
employed whether it be natural ventilation or powered ventilation
