There is a taste of a very little sour and salty, far from soda water in the market where it was manufactured by passing pressurized carbon dioxide through water. The pressure increases the solubility and allows more carbon dioxide to dissolve through atmospheric pressure, so when the Soda bottle opened the pressure released allowing the gas or well know as spirit to come out of the solution, forming the characteristic bubbles. Some appreciate the taste, because its refreshing, maybe some may afraid to try it, especially those who used distilled (known as mineral) water in their own houses. Lucky are those who taste it!!! LOL

Whatever the taste, the fresh, clear water coming from the sandy and rocky bottom of the pool is really refreshing. Cottages, picnic huts and tables are available.
