Default Modelling an indoor swimming pool

Hi there

I have been using Fluent for about a year but am only now trying to use it to model thermal problems (up until now its been purely blockage effects).

Ok so here is the thing i am puzzled about. This indoor pool has been experiencing too much condensation on its windows and a new ventillation system has to be installed. I want to model the current system to see what going on and know the water/air/outside temperatures as well as various other design parameters (humidity, dry/wet bulb temp. I am to suggest a new ventillation rate and suggets where the 2 vetillators should be placed. The geometry is very simple - an arced roof, rectangular pool and walkway around the pool.

Would the inlet (pool area) be class as a mass flow boundary? There isnt really an outlet either so would i just set everything else as a pressure outlet?

Any suggestions would be excellent
