Safe for People with Respiratory Problems, Sensitive Skin
The water is maintained at a constant 92 degrees so it's relaxing and soothing to muscles and joints. Using the water's natural properties of buoyancy and resistance helps many people improve their flexibility and muscle tone. Mercy's therapeutic pool offers an important advantage for people with respiratory problems or sensitive skin, as it's disinfected with bromide rather than chlorine.
