Phoenix 6000 Super power swimming pool dehumidifiers & heating, ventilation for hydrotherapy pool

An award winning swimming pool dehumidifiers & heating, ventilation was engineered using a roof-mounted Heatstar Phoenix 6000 Super AR WP unit.

Primary hot water is fed from heat pumps, solar, four Lacron 42″ filters and two 100% duty 1500 rpm Astral Pumps with an Inducon pool cover.

The swimming pool was constructed by David Hallam Swimming Pools and designed to cater for special educational needs at a school in Rutland, UK.

Steve Hallam of the Yorkshire-based swimming team, said, “We always pay particular attention to the turn-over rate on a hydrotherapy pool and try to keep this less than 45 minutes wherever possible. This type of pool tends to be very heavily used throughout the day by the schools then rented out in the evenings for swimming lessons to generate additional revenue so it is paramount that the water quality does not suffer.”

“The other critical design element is the heating and ventilation system in the pool hall, therapy pools by nature are run at a higher temperature than a standard swimming pool, with the pool cover being off for a significant length of time.”

“If the system is not designed correctly for the pool hall environment it can get very uncomfortable for the staff to work in and the fabric of the building can deteriorate very quickly. We always find Heatstar’s technical knowledge and products invaluable when it comes to designing this element of the project.”
