The paper describes possibility of efficient and safe use of geothermal water at a location in the town of Zagreb. Geothermal water is used exclusively for the purpose of sport and recreation. Due to elevated 226Ra concentrations the raw geothermal water must be used in limited proportions so as to exclude any potential health risk for the pool users. With application of adequate treatment methods, such as intense aeration (226Ra removal efficiency 13.7 ą 3.5 %) and filtration of aerated water with high pressure sand filters (removal efficiency 39.5 ą 7.9 %), elevated 226Ra content would be maximally reduced. The decrease of radioactivity enables that proportion of used geothermal water would be increased without any health risk, ensuring great cost reduction spent on the warming of pool waters.
