COMMON FLOATING FAQs

If you have questions, we've got answers. If you still have questions after reviewing the list below, please don't hesitate to contact us

 

+ How do you clean the pods?

The water is fully filtered between each float. The Epsom salts are a natural disinfectant and are at a super loaded amount. To learn more about our pods click here.

+ What if I’m claustrophobic?

Being in the pod is more like floating in outer space than being shut in a box. You’re always in control of your environment; you can leave a light on, crack the pod door and listen to music or a mediation to help you feel comfortable. Even people with extreme claustrophobia have reported having no problems with their time in the pod

+ How often is the water changed?

Every week we perform a very in-depth maintenance of our facilities focusing on our tanks. We add fresh epsom salt and water. Between the super-concentrated salt solution, a UV light disinfectant filter, and 10-micron cartridge filter, these are probably the cleanest recreational water sources you’ll encounter!

+ Is there anything I should do to prepare?

Don’t drink coffee for several hours beforehand (it can make your system jittery). Also, don’t shave or wax since the salt water can irritate your skin. Eating a light meal about an hour to 90 minutes ahead of time stops your stomach from grumbling while you float. Other than that, there’s no specific preparation needed.

+ Do I need to bring anything?

If you have longer hair, you may want to bring a comb or brush. Also, something to put your contact lenses into while you’re in the tank. Other than that, we provide everything you need (towels, earplugs, bodywash/shampoo, blow dryer and other hygiene items).

+ What type of tanks do you have?

We are pround to feature Float Pod, some of the best tanks in the industry. To learn more about our tanks, click here.

+ Can I float if I’m menstruating?

Yes. Just follow the same protocol you would for a swimming pool.

+Can I float if I’m pregnant?

Absolutely! There will be a womb within a womb! Floating can relieve a lot of the aches and pains caused by pregnancy. If you are in your third trimester, or have any concerns, please consult with your physician before coming in.

+ Can more than one person float in a tank at a time?

Yes! We offer couples floats!

+ Do I have to stay in the whole time?

You can get out anytime. There aren’t any latches on the tank doors and you control your experience.

+Do I get dehydrated from soaking for so long?

No - your skin doesn’t even prune up. You do absorb a lot of magnesium from the Epsom salt which has oodles of benefits.

+Can I drown if I fall asleep in there?

Nope. Some people fall asleep, but the water is so buoyant that you stay afloat. The worst that can happen is getting woken up by a bit of salt water in your eyes.

+Is floating new?

Floating has been around for over 40 years and there is considerable reasearch to back up its effectiveness. To learn more about the history of floating, click here.
