Thinking about having an indoor pool setup? You’ve probably looked around for inground pool prices and concluded that hiring someone is the best option, because they’ll think of every little detail that needs to be taken care of. While this may be the case, it doesn’t hurt to know the most important factors that come up when you have a pool room. In this article we’ll cover three of the most important things, which by no means are everything you need to think about, but it’s a good starting point.
Ventilation is key
Ventilation is one of the most important aspects you need to factor in when designing your pool room. Consider that the humidity is inevitable, but you want to keep it under control. This is where ventilation comes into play and there are a number of ways to handle it. Having windows that you can open, ceiling vents, and glass sliding doors should take care of this. If this isn’t an option there are also dehumidifiers, but the downside of this is that the electricity costs will go up.
Consider humidity when thinking about furniture and walls
Whatever furniture you have inside the room must be protected against humidity or be durable enough. Better yet, to avoid any issues they should be water resistant. In case they are not, you have to apply water resistant treatment, such as high gloss paint, and water sealant coatings. By the way, your walls should also be covered with this.
Drainage is also key
People coming in and out of the pool will leave you with a wet floor, and puddles all over the place. Without the sun to evaporate them you’ll need to think about an effective drainage system. It can be as simple as building gentle slopes on the floor that will conduct the water to either a gutter, or a water recollection system if that’s what you want. However you design it, you’ll decrease the chance of slipping accidents.
Carefully thinking ahead when building an indoor pool will guarantee you satisfaction, and overall happiness because you’ll prevent problems that can cause you headaches. Look beyond the aesthetic design (shape, swimming pool lights, etc), your aim when creating this space is to make it as low maintenance as possible, so you can spend more time swimming and less time worrying about problems.
