COMPOSITION OF THE MEDICINAL WATER

Composition of the medicinal water of Zalakaros

Because of the composition and amount of the 96 °C medicinal water breaking to the surface from a depth of over 2,500 meters the thermal water of Zalakaros is among the most important ones in Europe. Based on its composition the alkali chloride, hydrogen carbonate mineral water, the combined presence of iodine, bromine, sulphur and  fluorine yield a unique water composition that is rather rare in Europe. In addition to the above other main components of the medicinal water are potassium, sodium, magnesium, iron, manganese, metaboric acid, silicic acid, and free carbonic acid.

Data measured at wellhead.

The medicinal water is hot water containing sodium chloride and bicarbonate, which, as a result of its iodide and bromide ions represents iodide-bromide medicinal water, whereas its sulphide ion content ranks it among sulphurous medicinal waters.

The metaboric acid content of the water is rather high.
