The main source of the pools water comes from the Box Canyon where 100 GPM of 150 degree mineral water is gravity fed over a mile to the current day location of the pool. This line was the sole source for hot water at the pool from the 1920’s until the 1980’s when supplemental mineral water from exploratory drilling was discovered and added to the pool water supply. This supplemental water, from a well referred to as OX-2, provided an additional 190 GPM of 117 degree water making winter operation possible for the first time.
Today, 250-300 GPM of hot mineral water is continuously entering and exiting the pool in what we refer to as a flow through design. This flow through design allows us to provide fresh, clear, odorless mineral water 24 hours a day seven days a week for your enjoyment!
