Commercial Grade Floatation Therapy Tanks
Our floatation tanks are built by Float Lab Technologies In Venice Beach, California. Float Lab has been designing and building Sensory Deprivation Tanks since 1999. The main reason for using Float Lab is the cleanliness of the filtration process.
Unlike other floatation tanks we do not use ANY form of chemical filtration (No chlorine).
What is a floatation tank?
A room which is light and sound-free containing shallow, buoyant water to float weightlessly in. The floatation tank is filled with 14 inches of salted water heated to 95 °F. There is about 1,300 pounds of Epsom salt dissolved into the water to make it more buoyant than the Dead Sea. The air temperature is set at 95 °F, to match the surface temperature of your skin.
At our floatation center we have two tanks:
Front Room Tank: 8′ long x 4′ wide x 7′ high.
Back Room Tank: 8′ long x 5′ wide x 7′ high.
(Yes, you can stand in our tanks!)
How is the water cleaned?
After each customer a cleaning cycle is run. This process includes two pool filters, a UV filter, and an OZONE generator. The pump runs at 1,000 gallons per minute for 15 minutes. This process ensures that the floatation tanks are in pristine condition for the next customer.
Float Lab’s floatation tanks are the world’s only NSF 50 & UL 1795 certified floatation tank systems. These tanks are the only tanks approved for commercial use. Before every customer each floatation tank is sanitized by a patent pending disinfecting filtration system. This system is certified to produce a minimum 3-Log kill (99.9%) or greater per cleaning cycle without the use of any chemicals.
Crash, the owner of FloatLab and main designer of the floatation tanks is regularly on mainstream podcasts The Joe Rogan Experience, and the HBO series VICE letting people know what this therapy can do for the public and promoting the science behind it.
Why does a Float Lab Floatation Tank mean a better experience?
Most floatation tanks are designed for individuals. These people are using their floatation tanks in the quite of their own home. However that isn’t the case in a “center” setting. At The Flo we wanted to get the best floatation tanks for our customers. When using our floatation tanks you will not experience any sensory input of any kind. Unlike other centers where you can still have that external stimuli. This creates a complete sensory deprived environment that will easily allow you to relax. This relaxation and lack of sensory input can allow your mind to experience deep relaxation. The type of deep relaxation you would experience during a deep meditative state.
