Subject: Ventilation system
Hello! We are new indoor pool owners. A concern we have is there is no humidity control or ventilation system. Do most indoor pools have a ventilation system?

I dont' know about 'most' indoor pools, but I assume they do - without something in place, the high humidity can eventually damage wood and drywall. On chlorine pools, the chlorine in the air is perhaps a larger concern, for the oxidation it causes to metals and just the bad smell too. Good ventilation is also important for that reason too. If your pool has large natural ventilation, from large doors or windows, that may have been the plan, to control humidity and aerated chlorine - but depending where you live, you may not be able to do that year around. But yes, most indoor pools have a system for de-humidification, and for ventilation, to protect the structure and for swimmer comfort.
Some also use deck fans, or attic fans to assist.
