about our tanks

We offer both “float orb” and “float suite” styles of flotation tanks.

Yes, they look different, but once the lights are out, they offer the same level of awesomeness. Both have beautiful LED lighting, excellent ventilation, volume and light controls. They are also filtered, sanitized and maintained the same way.

float orb

Aside from being photogenic, the float orb does have a few notable differences from our float suites. For those who fear that being in a float tank might cause them to become claustrophobic, the float orb allows the floater to leave the large hydraulic ceiling all the way up making it more of a big warm sensory-reduced tub. Considering the rooms that house our float tanks are sound and lightproof even before closing the lid of the orb, leaving it open will allow for those who are a bit more hesitant to ease their way into the experience. The irony of fearing claustrophobia in float tanks is that, within seconds of closing the lid and turning off the lights, most people will feel like they are floating around in a very large, if not infinite space, rather than a 8’x5’ basin. Once someone has floated a few times, the style of tank becomes less of a concern. However, many do end up preferring the chrysalis shape and feel of the float orb.

float suite

A.K.A. a float room or float cabin, is a type of float tank that allows the floater to stand up when entering it. The tank itself is a standalone unit similar to an orb, but is framed out with walls for added aesthetic and soundproofing value. The high ceiling (at over 7 feet) and large step-in door make entering easy for the taller folk or for those who may be using the tank as therapy for an injury, soreness or pain. On an anecdotal note, there is also something special about crossing the threshold into the float suite. If the front door of our float center is the entrance to a place of peace and calm, this doorway is where the true escape begins.

sanitization

The water in a float tank is close to 30% salt. Not only does this allow for the many benefits of soaking in magnesium sulfate (Epsom Salt), but this level of salinity also makes the tank water a tremendously inhospitable environment for bacteria (most of which cannot live in concentrations over 10%). That same water is cycled 3-4 times in between each float session through a filter that can capture particles from the water as small as 1 micron (a human hair has a width of about 60 microns). While being filtered, the water is subjected to UV light and Ozone. When combined, UV and Ozone provide an extremely powerful sanitizing reaction without creating toxic byproducts. This practice of sanitization is so effective that it has become the method of choice in many medical facility pools. These sanitization measures along with our constant monitoring of water quality and temperature assure you are relaxing in the cleanest, most comfortable water possible.
