Sea water hot pot popular

The swimming pool in Laugardalur in Reykjavík recently opened a new hot pot, filled with heated sea water. This addition has proven extremely popular among guests at the swimming pool.

“We joke that we need a shoehorn to get into the pot because it is always crowded,” director of the swimming pool in Laugardalur Logi Sigurfinnsson told Fréttabladid.

According to Sigurfinnsson, it is healthy to bathe in sea water. “It is good for the skin and very refreshing,” he said. Sea water hot pots are used in spas around the world.

The sea water in the hot pot comes from a borehole made by Reykjavík Energy Company, which also provides the seals in Reykjavík Farm Animal Zoo with sea water.

The sea water in the hot pot is cleansed and heated to 40°C.
