If the correct hygiene procedures are followed then Floating in a floatation pod is many times safer than swimming in a public swimming pool or even your own backyard hot tub.
HIGH SALT EFFECT
The water in the pod is roughly 40 percent magnesium sulfate (Epson Salt), essentially making the water sterile. No pathogenic organisms can survive salt concentrations above 10 percent.
UV LIGHT TREATMENT
Water is also pumped by a UV light array, taking care of any micro-organisms that survives the extreme salt content of the water.
Every drop of water passes through a 0.5 micron filter three times after every float. Skimmers are also used to keep the surface completely clear.
We measure and maintain the pH, alkalinity, buoyancy and temperature of our pods constantly.
We also use hydrogen peroxide as an additional non-toxic disinfectant.
