Quite frequently we are asked if we change out the water between users, and the simple answer is “no”. However, the water in the Pod will likely be some of the cleanest water you've ever entered.  The Float Tank Association created the US Float Tank Standards - a rigorous set of regulations regarding sanitation, cleaning, and maintenance. They state the water should be changed every 1000 floats or every 6 months.

Public swimming pools and hot tubs are used by significantly more people and the health department regulations state that all the water must be filtered once every 6 hours.  The float tank industry is committed to the highest standard of cleanliness and Pods often exceed the requirements of the health departments.  Here is why our Royal Spa Float tanks will be some of the cleanest water you will enter.

  1. Our Royal Spa pods are designed to filter the water 24/7 when the Pod is not in use. Our Pods will filter the ENTIRE contents of the tank 3-5 times between each single user. The pods and showers are also manually cleaned between each float.

  2. Each Pod contains about 1,000 pounds of magnesium sulfate (Epsom salt) which is a natural antimicrobial. In reality, the salt content in the Pod is so high that bacteria can't survive. Researchers have actually injected bacteria into this concentration and it died very quickly.

  3. Ozone and UV purification insures bacteria and viruses are eliminated from the solution, tank surfaces, and air.

    • Ozone Purification System

      • You know that heavenly smell in the air after a summer thunderstorm? We can thank Ozone for that! It's (O3) comprised of 3 oxygen atoms, however, it's unstable like this, thus causing a release of one of the atoms. When this extra oxygen comes in contact with anything undesirable in the water, it's almost immediately oxidized and, thus, purified.

      • Ozone kills bacteria 3,000 times faster than chlorine and has 50 times the power. It eliminates organic material and viruses in addition to bacteria, mold, and yeast.

    • UV works to purify by damaging cellular DNA—when anything undesirable in the pod meets these purifying rays, they are killed. UV treatment protects against viruses (including Hepatitis, which is resistant to chlorine), molds and bacteria.

      • UV Sanitation - As humans, we're able to tolerate the UV rays of the sun. Bacteria, viruses, and molds aren't so lucky.  It eliminates organic material and viruses in addition to bacteria, mold, and yeast.

  4. In addition to what is already in place to maintain the float pod: filtration system, high salt content, Ozone and UV purification; we also require each guest to shower before and after each float.
