MINERAL WATER SUPPLIES
THE HERCULES SPRING 67 0C
At present, 16 natural springs wait thermal mineral
scattered along the Cerna for about 4 km, are known in the neighbourhoud of the
resort Baile Herculane. In the late decades 9 hidro-geological drillings have
been performed in order to obtain important flow increases. The present-day
thermal-mineral water supply the resort as in store is of 4.000 m3/24
h, that offers - due to their physical-chemical properties - various
possibilities of balneary treatment.
The clorine and sodium wich are found in great
quantities (from 7 mg/l to 4.700 mg/l), generally appear in thermal waters
through the effusion of hot mineralized vapours from the magma pits, through the
action of hydrochloric acid on the minerals in the rocks the vapours go
trough on their ascending way to the surface of the earth.

NATURAL AIR - IONIZATION
2.000-2.500 negative air-ions/cm3/s
Air-ions can act on the organism
in two ways:
- entering the lungs together with the in-coming air
- by direct action on the skin
Negativ ions increase the resistance of the body
to catching disease.
