In the 40 years that Floatation Therapy has been commercially available, there have been no reported cases of illness, infection, or outbreak.
At Peace seeks to help uphold this statistic by being committed to the highest standard of water quality for their retail and manufacturing clientele, by way of two filtration systems and a rigorous cleaning routine. The At Peace Float Cabin (“Cabin”) is filled with a saline solution that is composed of 70% water and 30% Epsom salt (800 lbs). Epsom salt is magnesium sulfate and is considered to be a mineral compound, which, unlike regular tap, pool or spa water actually promotes the hydration of your skin and hair.
The Cabin’s filtration system is run for a minimum of 20 minutes between each session and has a turnover rate of 98%, which means that the saline solution has been completely filtered a minimum of four times. In addition, the filtration system is run for longer periods of time before and after the first and last float to achieve optimal results.
The Cabin’s own filtration system works alongside DEL’s APG-U Plasma Ozone System (“Ozone”), which has been validated by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) to kill up to 99.9% of microorganisms typically found in spas. The Ozone sanitizes the water quickly and effectively without the undesirable by-products created by traditional chlorine and bromine chemicals. In addition to the double filtration system, a detailed cleaning regimen is followed between each session, which includes the use of Hydrogen Peroxide (H202) at the end of the day to ensure a bacteria-free environment.
