Indoor swimming pools allow swimmers to enjoy the recreation, exercise, and relaxation of the outdoor swimming pool all year round. For homeowners in the Sun Belt and other temperate climates, the indoor pool might not be a necessity. However, the indoor pool is the perfect addition to any home for a good portion of the country that experiences harsh winters.
Indoor pools provide a climate-controlled environment for adults and children alike. Kids can have pool parties and enjoy swimming and frolicking during even the year’s coldest months. Adults can continue swimming laps and water aerobics during the same season, avoiding the annual task of winterizing that an outdoor swimming pool necessitates.
Material choices are crucial to indoor pool designs. The swimming pool and hot tub proper can be designed and built precisely as an outdoor swimming pool would. Automatic pool covers are quite important on an indoor pool to keep the humidity. Deck materials and the building materials in the natatorium or pool space need to be carefully considered, as they have to be resistant to moisture and corrosion from a humid environment. Even though the ambient air temperature in a Natatorium is about 10 degrees higher than the pool water, the environment can still be humid and corrosive. Dehumidification and air handling systems are crucial in these applications, and omitting this feature will not only make the environment uncomfortable for the users but it could also be potentially quite dangerous. Decks need to have ample drainage so that water doesn’t migrate and travel to other areas of the deck and potentially migrate to places where it could cause damage.
