In 1938, the spring was captured three to four meters below the water level of the Ueßbach with a steel bell and the mineral water was transported to the surface via a riser pipe. It was later decided to re-drill the Strotzbüscher source by drilling a hole 6.20 meters deep. The spring is still classified as acidic, but according to its composition it is called sodium bicarbonate chloride water. With 4,030 milligrams of dissolved minerals per liter, the water is more mineralized than the healing water of the Bad Bertrich thermal spring. The overflow of the spring basin is fed into the Ueßbach flowing past.
