    If is was a salt water pool could that potentially kill the mold? Me sneak my husband are thinking of doing the same as this but half of the size 😅

    The black mold may be able to be controlled with increased air flow. I saw another video where the roof design allowed cool air to mix and escape but not so much that it over cooled… the roof design itself creates airflow without adding any electric fans etc ….

    Potassium carbonate is a great deterrent to many diseases in hot humid climates.
