Common means of bodily cleansing found on many worlds. A bathhouse contains one or more pools of water in which a biont swims and submerges emselves to remove dirt, heal wounds, and promote health. The pools contain nanoactive and enriched water that serves as a recreational pool and biont cleanser. A Highly efficient and relaxing means of bathing. The pool's self-cleansing means that the pool water only needs to be replaced when evaporation reduces the water level. Most popular on water poor worlds/habs where individual bathing would be wasteful.
