  • How Clean is The Water in a Float Tank?
    Often, people ask if we change the water in the pods between each user and, equally as often, people are surprised when the answer is "no". That said, the water in the Pod will likely be some of the cleanest water you've ever entered. We'll explain! ​ The Float Tank Association (yes - it exists!) has created the US Float Tank Standards - a stringent set of regulations regarding sanitation, cleaning, and maintenance. They state the water should be changed every 1000 Floats or every 6 months. ​ Public swimming pools and hot tubs are used by many at once and the heath department regulations state that all the water must be filtered once every 6 hours. Our Pods are designed to filter the water 24/7 when the Pod is not in use. ​ Our Pods will filter the ENTIRE contents of the tank 3-5 times between each single user. Additionally, each Pod contains about 1,000 pounds of magnesium sulfate (Epsom salt) which is a natural antimicrobial. In reality, the salt content in the Pod is so high that bacteria can't survive. Researchers have actually injected bacteria into this concentration and it died very quickly. ​ Surely that's enough to cover our bases, right? Probably true, but the float tank industry is committed to the highest standard of cleanliness and Pods often exceed the requirements of the health there's more!
  • UV Sanitation
    As humans, we're able to tolerate the UV rays of the sun. Bacteria, viruses, and molds aren't so lucky. In the Float Pod, UV works to purify by damaging cellular DNA—when anything undesirable in the pod meets these purifying rays, they are killed. UV treatment protects against viruses (including Hepatitis, which is resistant to chlorine), molds and bacteria.
  • Ozone Purification System
    You know that heavenly smell in the air after a summer thunderstorm? We can thank Ozone for that! It's (O3) comprised of 3 oxygen atoms, however, it's unstable like this, thus causing a release of one of the atoms. When this extra oxygen comes in contact with anything undesirable in the water, it's almost immediately oxidized and, thus, purified. Ozone kills bacteria 3,000 times faster than chlorine and has 50 times the power. It eliminates organic material and viruses in addition to bacteria, mold, and yeast. ​ There are layers and layers of cleanliness, sanitation and protection!
  • I can't float. Is this therapy for me?
    We promise that, with a half ton of Epsom Salt in shallow water, you'll have a hard time not floating! No effort or work on your part is necessary to stay afloat. So - yes - it's absolutely for you!
  • Can I float while pregnant?
    We will require a release from your primary care doctor before you will be allowed to float. Pregnant clients may experience some of the greatest relief from floating—physically and mentally. The added weight and pressure on the mother’s body is likely to cause pain and discomfort, the weightless impact of floating can provide much relief! Many clients report a unique and memorable experience floating while pregnant.
  • Is the water clean?
    Epsom salt is a natural antimicrobial and, due to the high salt content in our Pods, bacteria simply can't live in the water. That said, we also have two filtration systems that cycle all of the water in the Pod 4 to 5 times between users, a bromine system, AND an ozone/UV sanitation system. It's likely the cleanest water you'll ever be in!
  • Must I stay in the entire time?
    The room is reserved for your exclusive use during your float session. You may exit anytime, however, please note that credits or refunds will not be given for unused time.
  • Will my skin wrinkle after spending so much time in the water?
    Surprisingly - no! The high level of Epsom Salts prevent the skin from wrinkling. It will, however, leave your skin silky smooth!
  • Will the salt water wreck my hair?
    The salt water will not harm your hair, but we do not recommend floating if you have dyed your hair, or have had it chemically treated in the past 7 days.
  • What if I fall asleep? Will I drown?
    Each Pod contains only 10 inches of incredibly salt-dense water, therefore, it is not required that the user know how to swim. As for drifting off to sleep, we highly encourage it! 1 hour of sleep in the Pod is equivalent to about 4 in your bed due to flotation encouraging your brain waves into theta state. If you happen to roll over in the Pod (trust us, it's hard to do), the discomfort from the salt water in your eyes will quickly wake you (don't worry, there's a fresh water spray bottle in the Pod for a quick rinse).
  • How much can I Float?
    You can float as often as you like. There are no adverse effects, aside from being too relaxed. There is no limitations on doing "nothing".
  • What if I have a cut or scrape?
    On any open cuts or scrapes, apply our supplied Vaseline before entering the float pod to prevent irritation from the salt.
  • Do I wear a bathing suit?
    We recommend floating nude so as to decrease sensory stimulus, but you may float in a swim suit if you'd prefer.
