Indoor Pools... Why do I need a cover?

Indoor pools aren't subjected to the environment so are sometimes overlooked when it comes to choosing a suitable automatic cover but it is surprising just how much energy is lost through evaporation from the indoor pools surface.

Any indoor pool requires room ventilation to control humidity caused by the large amount of evaporation. The ventilated air must also be conditioned, which greatly increases energy costs. Without the introduction of a Dripool cover, a dehumidifying system would be required to run constantly in order to reduce chemical and heat loss through evaporation from the pools surface. It is also of relevance to note that the cover will be instrumental in protecting the surrounding building from the affects of the chemicals evaporating from the pool surface.

Covering a pool when it is not in use is the single most effective means of reducing pool heating costs. Savings of 50%–70% are realistically achievable. Pool covers on indoor pools not only can reduce evaporation but also the need to ventilate indoor air and replace it with unconditioned outdoor air. You can also shut off exhaust fans when an indoor pool is covered, which saves even more energy.

An interface is fitted as standard to all Dripool indoor installations to ensure the dehumidification equipment turns on when the cover is removed and shuts down when in place to enable effective cost management.
