Our old-fashioned 20' x 20' therapeutic hot mineral soaking pool is approximately 2 ft. deep and 104 degrees and draws it's constant flow up from the natural artesian well beneath Avila Hot Springs. Avila Hot Springs' source of mineral water is a geothermal spring emanating from deep within the earth's mantle, brought to the surface by our artesian well, which allows the precious water to flow up to us without pumping at about 130-135 degrees, where it is cooled with a little fresh water to about 104 degrees in our hot pool. The flow of our spring has remained constant for over 100 years. More info at https://www.avilahotsprings.com
