    I installed a desert-Aire last year. That stuff is serious. I was amazed when the startup guy came out and ran through it with me. Mad respect for those guys✊

    The primary function of the design engineer is to make things difficult for the fabricator and impossible for the serviceman.

    Here's a dumb question. Can the condensate from a humidifier or Pool Pak or Dectron or whatever be piped back into the pool?

    I thought that piping the condensate back to the pool was a "part of the package". You can do it as an economy thing or not.

    Never seen it done. Always ran to a drain on everyone I've seen and worked on.

    +1 on dry-o-tron or desert aire etc.
    That application calls for a purpose-built dehumidifier. You'll have an outdoor commercial split style condenser for cooling in summer and it will heat your pool water at the same time. It's a vicious cycle type of system. I don't see how mini splits would ever fit the bill.
    They require backup heat downstream of the unit supply plenum and boilers for heating the pool water as well.
