Competition Pool Natatorium

Natatoriums present mechanical & electrical designers with unique challenges. Numerous elements must be carefully considered ranging from chloramine removal, humidity levels and dew points, unique ventilation and air-change rates, airflow distribution patterns, access to lighting over a vast pool of water, etc. Building owners can have confidence in the knowledge and experience that Purtle & Associates brings to the design table and that their natatorium’s mechanical & electrical systems will be designed right the first time.

Pool Evacuator Unit

The pool evacuator unit is a special exhaust system whose purpose is to remove harmful chloramines from the natatorium space. Chloramines are continuously emitted from a pool’s surface, and their rate of release increases during periods of higher activity within the pool. These chloramines need to be removed from the space (at the source) as they are harmful to both the building and its occupants.
