On Janošik-Jermenovci sector in 1973-1976 period, spa treatment used to function. Thermomineral water was exploited from borehole Je-17, from the depth of 982m. Thermomineral water is obtained from upper pontius sends from the depth of 700m-800m. water has 48˚C, and borehole profusion is 300l per minute. The department for spa climatology performed chemical analysis of the water, when the presence of bromine, iodine, hydrogen-sulphite, strontium was found, and there were evident barium and iron, likewise.
The Institute for nuclear sciences „Boris Kidrič“ in Vinča examined radioactivity of the water and found that it is 88pCi/l, and taht it originates from radon and radium, but, despite this finding, they declared it suitable for bath.
This water is the water with the highest percentage of iodine and the most radioactive water ever found in Voivodina. During the working period of pool, there was a possibility of accomodation in private houses of „Nafta-gas“ residence colony.
