    Already in 1923 Leonhard Hörpel reported in his essay on the Probbacher Sauerborn, which appeared in the supplement "Homeland II" of the Weilburger Tageblatt, about this custom ... "Probbach kept his source, refreshed, when the meadows were mowed, by its coolly bubbling Water and celebrated at Pentecost the "Burnausräumen" as old with music and dance. "Remained to this day is the annual cleaning of the well necessary. The well, which has been closed since 1973, is opened, pumped down to the filter layer at a depth of approx. 3 m, and the well shaft is cleared of deposits of the highly ferrous water and possible impurities. It takes up to 24 hours until the well has run aground again and is available in the best quality. In painstaking detail work, the outdoor area also receives a general cleaning to visually present the visitors from near and far in perfect condition.

    This water tastes very similar to the sour wells in the Kallenbachtal very sour, so is not as well suited as drinking water.
