Can I drown if I fall asleep while I'm floating?


You will not drown in a float tank if you fall asleep. The density caused by the Epsom salt water makes you buoyant and difficult to turn over. If you do turn over, you will get salt water in your eyes and mouth which will wake you up.


How about if I'm claustrophobic?

All four float rooms are 5' x 8' tubs filled with 10" of Epsom salt water.  There is plenty of room to stretch out and be comfortable. You can leave the lights on and the glass door to the float room open.


How is the water cleaned?

The salt water solution in each of our float rooms has 1000 lbs. of pharmaceutical grade Epsom salt. It is high in saline that no living microorganism can survive in there. A daily treatment of a 27% H2O2 solution is added to the water.  The water is filtered through a filtration system that traps debris as small as 5 microns, a Ultra Violet water sanitizer, and Ozone generator. The water in the float tanks are filtered automatically between each session and when it is not in use. 


Is there any reason why a person should not float?

  • If you have any type of communicable or infectious disease, skin disorder, or open sores
  • If you are experiencing incontinence
  • If you have diarrhea
  • If you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • If you have allergies to salts, bromine, and magnesium
  • If you are diabetic, have heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, or epileptic, you should not float unless you have your physician's approval to float.


What should I do prior to arriving at Tranquil Waters Float?

  • DO NOT SHAVE OR WAX at least 24 hours prior to your float session. The salt water can irritate your skin.
  • Do not drink coffee a few hours prior to floating.
  • Eat a little something prior to floating.


Can I float if my hair is colored or tinted?

Please do not float if you have recently colored your hair and it is still bleeding (color running or coming off on a towel after washing). You can check your towel after shampooing to ensure it is not running.  If it is, you cannot proceed with your float.  Reds, jet blacks, and bright colores (blues, picks, etc.) tend to be the worst and can bleed for more than a month. If you choose to float and your hair is bleeding, it may result in a $1500.00 float room fee for us to drain and clean our float room.


Will floating help my anxiety or claustophopia?

Floating helps! However, it may take you 4-5 times to get comfortable and really allow yourself to relax. Do whatever it takes to stay in the pool for the length of your session. If you need to leave the light on, do it! If you need to play music, do that! Work up to going a full session without any stimulus. Take your time and do it at your comfort level. 


What do I need to do before I float?

  • You will need to read and sign the Waiver and Release of Liabilty form. 
  • Use the bathroom prior to floating.
  • You will need to shower prior to floating. This will rinse off any oils, lotions, and dirt on your body and hair.
  • Wear earplugs which is provided. Please make sure they are tightly sealed.
  • Cover any small scrapes or cuts with Petroleum jelly.
  • Be careful entering and exiting the float room due to the floors being slippery.
