How is the water maintained?2018-07-31T16:54:54+00:00

The Dreampod comes well equipped with several features to maintain hygiene of the water. The main filter is a 10 micron filter bag, capable of filtering debris in the water as small as 1/4 the size of the diameter of a human hair. Water is also pumped by a UV light array, taking care of any micro-organisms that survives the extreme salt content (600kg) of the water. After each session, the whole body of water cycles through a filtration system containing UV lamps and a micron filter 4-6 times. There is also a chlorine injection system. The water is also treated with a small amount of chlorine in line with health regulations. We regularly test and balance the water throughout the day.
