Covered pools for private houses, hotels

Covered pools for private houses, hotels,
clubs and schools
There are obviously many advantages in having a covered swimming pool instead
of an open-air one. A covered pool can be used in comfort 365 days a year compared
with the ‘season’ for an open-air pool of about 150 days. The conditions under
which the pool has to operate are much less onerous; problems arising from freezethaw
do not arise, staining of the walls and floor is much reduced, and discolouration
of the water from leaves and air-borne dirt will be eliminated.
See  for views of private house pools, and  for
views of hotel, club, and school pools.
A major problem with covered pools is the occurrence of condensation on the
walls, windows and ceiling, and, depending on the method of construction, within
the roof space.
The environment in the hall of a heated indoor swimming pool can be considered
as particularly hostile to many building materials; the air temperature is relatively
high—probably about 28 °C to 30 °C, and the relative humidity is also high, say,
70–75%. The surfaces in contact with the air in the pool hall will generally have a
lower temperature than the temperature of the air in the hall; if the air is saturated


with water vapour, condensation will occur on the contact surfaces. The temperature
at which condensation occurs is known as the dew point.
The design and detailing of the roof requires special attention
