The Iberian Group of Natural Bathing Waters (GIABN), a bi-national association of professionals for design and construction of biological pools on the Iberian Peninsula, started a collaboration with other sister organizations in Austria and Italy. Together they launched a research project that aims to try to vanish how and why guests spend their holidays with a biological pool in a tourist resort that has this type of equipment.

It is a study that will take place simultaneously in Portugal, Spain, Austria and Italy during the months of June, July, August and September of this current year. The results of the study will be presented at the 11th international congress on swimming pools with biological treatment that will take place in Albufeira at the beginning of October 2021.

A key part of this research project is a questionnaire in five languages, which is the same in all four participating countries, since this international study aims to try to compare the perception of swimming pools with biological treatment in tourist enterprises in these participating countries.

Who has a tourism with biological pool in Portugal and has not yet received the link to this questionnaire, please request the link by contacting Bio Piscinas, Lda.

The study will not be successful without your cooperation, which we cordially request! Please share the link with your guests.

And we must not forget to mention that among the participants of this questionnaire in each country a winner will be selected who wins a prize! It will be a 2-night stay for 2 people in a tourism with a biological pool, located in the country where you have participated in this research project.
