“There is no chlorine smell in the pool area or in other parts of the building,” said Wayne Brodt, vice president of Wynn Construction Inc., Oklahoma City, the project’s general contractor.
Other priorities were to provide comfortable humidity levels, while simultaneously reducing pool water heating costs. These were accomplished with the specification of two Dry-O-Tron® RS-122 package heat recovery dehumidifiers from Dectron. Each 12,500-cfm unit recovers heat to provide nearly 100 percent of the pool water heating demand, while at the same time providing space heating and cooling tasks.
