First Float FAQ
What should I do to prepare to float?
We provide everything you need and you go in nude, so there is nothing to bring.
We recommend you don’t shave 4 hours prior (waxing up to 24 hrs).
It’s best to eat a small meal 2-3 hours prior and it’s ideal to avoid caffeine before your float.
Be prepared to remove contact lenses.
Do I need to bring anything?
Nope! We provide everything you need (towels, earplugs, body wash, shampoo, and conditioner) and you go in nude, so you’ll be good to go. Note: We now have hair dryers!
Can 2 people float in the pod at the same time?
While 2 people could fit in our pods, we only allow 1 person per pod.
What happens if I fall asleep?
It’s totally safe. In fact, some people enjoy sleeping in float tanks.
How is the water in the float tank kept clean?
After each float, all the salt water in the tank is cycled through an advanced filtering process 3-4 times. These filters are fully effective to one micron, which is 100 times smaller than a human hair. In addition, the 1,200 lbs. of Epsom salt that are dissolved into the water acts a natural disinfectant. On top of this, we maintain a safe level (100 ppm) of hydrogen peroxide, a powerful disinfectant. Water sanitation is extremely important to us, so we continually test and monitor the it to make sure it is perfectly clean and safe, so you can relax knowing the environment is completely sterile.
Will the salt damage my hair?
The high density of salt may dry out your hair a bit, but a good solution is to use a mixture of one part white vinegar and one part water in the shower when you get home. http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Your-Hair-Silky-and-Shiny-with-Vinegar
