1. What if I fall asleep during my float?

No problem at all. The amount of salt in the water will keep you floating on top with zero effort allowing you to relax and enjoy a peaceful nap

2. How deep is it?

Our float rooms are designed to have only ten inches of water

3. Are there lights on the inside?

Yes. Our rooms come standard with LED underwater lighting as well as a star light ceiling option that can be used for ambient lighting or even Chroma therapy

4. How long are the float sessions?

Most people do 60-90 minute floats. Our systems are designed to accommodate longer sessions if desired. There is a mandatory 30minute filtration cycle that runs between each session to ensure the highest water quality possible

You cannot float if you have open wounds, a communicable disease, incontinence, or are prone to seizures. Women that are pregnant are advised to consult with their doctor before floating

6. How is the water kept clean?

Our filtration and sanitation systems are designed to turn the water over at least five times between each float session. Each unit is designed to meet the requirements of your local authorities and regulations. UV sanitation and particulate filtration is standard on all of our models. In addition to that we use one or more of the following options: Bromine, hydrogen peroxide, Ozone

7. What if I am claustrophobic?

Our rooms have been designed with that specifically in mind. We offer ample head room inside with the option of a cathedral ceiling for even more space. We also carry a king size float room that increases the floatation area by about 40%

8. Can two people float together?

Floating is something you do by yourself. Having other distractions in the float environment would take away from the experience

9. Do I need to prepare for my float?

It is not recommended to eat a heavy meal or ingest caffeine prior to floating. Do not float after a fresh shave or wax as the salt will irritate the skin

We can install in both scenarios. Special cases may require some of the framing to be done after installation.

If not we will only be able to test the equipment and check for leaks using cold unsalted water
