Interior wall surfaces for indoor pool

Kat

I'm looking for suggestions for wall surfaces for our indoor pool room. I've heard that painted drywall is out of the question because of the humidity, but is there anything similar to painted drywall that would work? The walls are wood-framed. I'm looking for different options as well.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Green Board! In such a high humidity area, use Cement board as a Tile backer.

What are the walls of saunas surfaced in, cedar? redwood?

Or all copper.

(not similar to ptd gwb, I know)

Fiberglass reinforced plastic is ideal for the humidity levels and cleanliness needs, but not very good looking. The material itself isn't that ugly - its the joints. Can be considerable savings over tile if you have to go that way. Can be used on ceilings as well.

organic...you can use greenboard as a tile backer in
showers where the water doesn't come in direct contact
with it...how is this different than a pool?

perhaps you should use
-
an organically modulated idiosyncratic self-iterative liminal testicular blobby material that responds viscously to explorative probes
-
hence dislocation of topography through the digital film that reproduces images of the mathematical pattern of waves and airplpane flight paths that are always engaging around a knuckle like a ruber suit put through a maya script that wont end until someone pulls the plug o the computer or a vertical section is taken that will reveal the intricacy of the system overload
-
and that lumisty film by 3-m because pleats please used it and miyake knows whats best in his madnes of folded plate construction wrapped up in a red asiago cheese slice smothered with grape jelly and stuffed into the intersticial cravingsof your soul after you can
-
wax on wax off it and will register the temporality of the human body since its all about sex and boobage and skin because its so architectural like a system of scaffolding with fabric covering it up like some bone and muscle and skin sandwich that tastes like ecstatic architecture
-
and then you should string up some stainless steel mesh so that ivy can grow all over it since ytou have to get some greenwash in there else how will the architectural press ever pick it up unless you are short 500 bathrooms like morphosis and they vent into the occular conceptual prose

now bring me my mojito with a little umbrella in it! and turn on that dehumidifier and wash the soap scumm off the ceramic tile!

and i forgot about maybe using backlit and edge lit resin in all different colors- im talking 4' by 8' by 2 foot thick self supporting inherently finished panels that you could tilt up like pre-cast concrete. press your body up to that sexy architecture.

Larslarson, I do not have a problem with using green board, as a tile backer, in most wet areas. However, in an enclosed pool area, where high humidity can be sustained over long periods, I feel that in this case, if installed properly, cement board sheets as a tile backer board, is a better choice.

oh...i can see your point...i was thinking that showers are basically
as humid ...but as i rethink it cement board might be better...
i just wouldn't want to install it..and depending on how large the room
was wouldn't you have slight problems with the amount of weight?...
would you have to add more studs?

proper dehumidification of indoor swimming pools calls for a systematic technique. So whilst you consider it in those phrases, it truly is your interior circumstance, what are you going . blowing air immediately on the surface of the pool instead of at the exterior walls.

Please suggest me the sfs1000 pool pump asap.

can you just use a moisture resistant  GWB in this setting? Unfortunately don’t have clients with indoor pools yet... wish I did!
