Thermal calculations for indoor swimming pools require that amount of water evaporated from the pool's water surface, as well as water evaporated from the floor surrounding the pool and from the bodies of the occupants are to be determined. It means in practice that amount of vapor transferred to the air in the pool hall depends most of all on physical parameters of water and air. One of more important factors that affect water evaporation is also the way the pool is operated. The present article shows only chosen relations applied to determine the values of evaporation rate from occupied pool. The relations also account for the mode of pool's operation. The aim of the paper is to analyse the effect of changes of temperature and of relative air humidity in the hall, of water temperature and of air velocity above the water surface, as well as of the number of occupants on moisture gains in the hall. The above data let choose the right relation to be applied in calculations for the water evaporation rate.
