Frequently Asked Questions...
Even though Floating has been around for quite sometime, many people still have a ton of questions regarding the process, the float pools, and the benefits. We did our best to answer the most frequently asked ones here. Please contact us if there is anything else you would like to know!
How big is the floating area?
-There are many different types of float "tanks", we have custom built 6x8x8 float rooms. They are similar in size to an elevator. Each of our float rooms, has a user controller interior light, non lockable full sized door, and a ventilation system to circulate the air throughout your float.
I don't know how to float! I could never do it in a pool or the ocean. Can I drown? How deep is it?
-The pools have about 250 gallons of water, and 1400 pounds of Epsom Salt dissolved into it. Thanks to the ultra high salinity of the water, you don't have to waste time holding your breathe or paddling your arms, the water holds you up! You'll never sink, or drown. Your body will float effortlessly and automatically upon laying down in the water. A little more than half of your body, including your ears, will be below the water line. This helps in getting rid of outside noise while floating. The water is between 10.5-11 inches.
What can I expect when I come to The Float Place?
-Upon arrival for your first visit, you will be greeted and asked to fill out a short waiver before we show you to your suite. The rooms are extremely private, and everything is provided for you. You will be given a complete walk-through, asked to shut your phone off, and sent on an amazing experience!
What can I expect upon entering the tank?
-We have had many people who have come in a little nervous about their float, and really want to know what to expect. The word Peaceful is probably the most common description of a float. There are no cell phones, clocks, tablets, or bright lights in the tank. This means you can open your eyes, and still have them be in a relaxed state. Many tell us they aren't sure if their eyes were opened or closed, during their float.
Am I free to exit the tank whenever I want? I'm a bit nervous.
-Of Course! There are no locks on the tanks, and you're free to get out at any time throughout your float. It is very important for you to to know that YOU, are in control of the float at all times.
How Sanitary is the tank? How is the water kept clean?
-The water in the tanks is constantly being filtered. Our filtration and sanitation system are specifically designed to handle the salt water. The combination of the high-salinity salt water, powerful UV sterilizing bulb, and 35% Hydrogen peroxide are more than up to the task of keep the water clean and free of bacteria. We also utilize a cartridge filter to remove any further debris that may be in the water.
90 Minutes seems like a long time. What if I get bored?
-While sitting in line at the D.M.V. for 90 minutes may seem like hours, your 90 minutes of floating will absolutely fly by. Most tell us that is felt more like 25-30 minutes.
