Frequently Asked Questions
Is the water clean?
Our state-of-the-art float tanks keep the water pristine. It filters the water 5 times between each session using a combination of particle filters, UV light/O-Zone, as well as a slight amount of Bromine that is required by the Florida Department of Health. Combined with 1000 pounds of Epsom salt, it will likely be the most sanitary water you've been in!
What do I wear?
Floating is a private experience. You have your own locking room, so most chose not to wear anything. Material against the body can be distracting and can take away from the float experience.
How do I prepare?
We recommend not drinking any caffeine the day of your float. You want your mind to be as calm as possible. Don't wax or shave the day of as the salt water can be irritating. Also, eat a small meal about an hour before so you're not hearing your grumbling stomach the whole time! We recommend not wearing makeup as well, but we will provide makeup removing wipes if needed. This helps maintain the cleanliness of the water.
Do I need to bring anything?
We recommend removing contacts before floating, so a case to store them will be necessary. Also if you have longer hair then you may want to bring a brush or comb for after. Other than that we will provide everything you need (towels, shampoo/body wash, earplugs, etc.)
What if I'm claustrophobic?
You are always in complete control of your surroundings. You can open the pod door at anytime or leave the lights on. There have been no reported problems even with people that have extreme claustrophobia.
Can I float with dyed hair?
Please give three weeks to pass before floating. Unfortunately we cannot float those using temporary or red/blue dye as these have a higher chance of bleeding. If you can wash your hair and dry it on a white towel without staining then you are good to go!
Can I float while menstruating?
Absolutely. Please follow the same procedure as you would for a swimming pool.
Can I float while pregnant?
Of course! Pregnant women often have some of the best floats as their aches and pains can be relieved. If you are in your third trimester, or have any concerns, please consult your physician before floating.
Can I drown?
No way! Many people fall asleep while floating. The water is so buoyant that you won't sink or flip over.
