Llívia Route water sources.

• SULPHUR SOURCE: This upwelling we Egat river valley, making border with the French border. Although we have the source and the river together, their waters are different, both in her temperature -7 ° C, the source; 5 ° C, the river- as their physical and chemical properties.
The source water comes from metamorphic slates Rock Canal, which are quite mineralized by the dissolution of quartz and iron with groundwater, and leaves in states of sulfides and oxides. One can observe aforementioned white, stringy viscous product of bacterial activity with sulfur. Its water could be considered as medicinal it has similar physical and the chemical properties of Escaldes, although not hot:
◦ Very little mineralized,
◦ very low hardness,
◦ high pH,
◦ contains carbonates,
◦ little calcium,
◦ no magnesium.

Water from the source of sulfur is beneficial for:
◦ Skin diseases,
◦ gastrointestinal diseases,
◦ liver,
◦ kidneys,
◦ for healing,
◦ as a muscle relaxant,
◦ pulmonary congestion,
◦ asthma,
◦ tuberculosis,
◦ -varius- circulation,
◦ etc ..

Its flow is tight, 1 liter per minute, and there you go for cleaning the tank is filled with sulfur bacterial filaments.



• SOURCE OF IRON: Out in the valley of the torrent of Pigeon Rock Canal; of these slates from which the water from the source of sulfur. When the water comes to the surface is oxidized and converted into ferrous, soluble oxide, and ends up turning into a mud, ferric oxide -insoluble-. It is slightly mineralized and low hardness water. It does not have many medicinal functions but serve to fermetats related weakness:
▪ anemias,
▪ limb tremors,
▪ etc.

It is a source with very little water, 0.3 liters per minute; You must go careful because iron precipitates are deposited at the point of upwelling, making mud.
