The following Spa model consists of Dead Sea Pools area and Treatment Area. Dead Sea Pools The pools should be built with concrete and ceramics – NO METAL – including all the plumbing. All pools must be built with engines having good circulation. One will serve as a Dead Sea Salt pool and one as a Sulphur pool. Dead Sea Salt Pool This pool is used mainly for deep relaxation. You have two options: 1. You can fill the pool with regular water mixed with of Dead Sea Salt (40%). Water must be in temperature of 28c. The water must be replaced on a regular basis. Due to the high salt concentration, people will be able to float the same way they float in the Dead Sea. Recommended soaking time is approx. 30 minutes. Mixing the salt with water: In a big tank with a mixer, blend the water with the salt until it is dissolved and then fill the pool. Note: This option is very expansive and less recommended. 2. The second option will be to fill the pool with real Dead Sea water you can buy in 1000 litter tanks. The water does not have to be replaced – only added- as long as you add chlorine and circulation engine. This method is recommended since it is less expansive, requires easier maintenance. Plus, the customer benefits from ALL the minerals contained in the Dead Sea water and its natural greasy feeling (an effect that you don’t get by just mixing the salt).
