Our Premium Floating Tank/Pod

Floating Tank/Pod and Floating Room Manufacturer

100% water removal/filtration, reservoir system, self draining float pods/rooms! – The premium of floating!

We are float tank manufacturers and designers (producing float tanks and rooms since 2009, sold and installed more than 150 units worldwide to 22+ countries) also, so we have thought through and improved every aspect of the flotation experience with our technical knowledge and design, resulting in the creation of -we believe- the most advanced flotation pod equipment available today, the Float Spa Premium Floating Tank System. References shown here: http://floatspa.com/references-installed-systems/

Hygiene and design are our first priorities, that is why we decided to manufacture our floating tanks with an external water reservoir tank, so the Float Spa Premium Floating Tank System is totally emptied from the salt water between each guest! Our floating tank (called also floating cabin, float pod, float pool) is filled with the salty water in front of the guest just right when the float session starts, the salty water pumped from the external water reservoir tank to the float pod and during this process even the last drop of water pumped through our 4 steps water cleaning system. This is the premium level in hygiene. Even the antibacterial inside of the pod can be cleaned/rinsed easily with a handshower! If you are claustrophobic, you can leave the top lid as much open as you wish, and it stays in the desired position! The inside of our premium float tank/pod is huge anyway, you can hardly reach the “ceiling” if the lid is closed, so you you have plenty of space and air inside. The system is able to add fresh air or scented air (aromatherapy) to the pod’s air.

From July 2018 we are producing our float tanks in 2 versions: 1 (short skirt original version float pod) needs a 10″ (26 cm) high podium (original version) and have a low threshold of 1’2″ (35 cm) to step over.

The other (long skirt new version float pod) does not need a podium, but have a bit higher front “threshold” of 2 feet (61 cm) to step over. For older customers the original version can be easier to use, but the long skirt version needs less building cost, because you do not need to build a podium. It is up to your decision which combination, how many you choose and from which version!

Our designers have engineered the Float SPA® floatation tank to induce maximum hygiene, relaxation and rest. They envisioned the float cabin looking like a stone, lying on a sandy beach. Nature, serenity, balance and harmony are notions that come to mind upon admiring the  interior and exterior design of the Float SPA’s isolation tank.

Our company Float Spa Kft. is the manufacturer of the Float Spa Premium Floating Tank System and the Float Spa Premium Floating Room System and we have our own manufacturing/production sites in Hungary, EU.

So far we have references in: USA, Canada, UK, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Russia, Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy, France, Jersey Island (UK), Slovakia, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Belarus, Romania, Serbia, Turkey, Tajikistan, Ukraine, Hungary… The list is growing!

Floating as a business: we have our own return of investment ROI business plan calculation (please send us a request in e-mail to receive it) ready to help your business decision and to help to compare the size of your investment and the ROI times (only cca. few weeks ROI difference can be calculated by the price between the float tank manufacturers) when you choose us or other manufacturers. This is a one time investment into the hygiene and design (as we say: into the premium and future of floating) which will not effect badly your ROI time, but can be beneficial and a selling point for you for many years and can be greatly appreciated by your satisfied floating guests. The difference of the ROI time of a simple float pod vs. our Float Spa Premium Floating Pod System is only cca. 2-6 weeks and then you can have the premium of floating in hygiene and design for many years!  (Even our first float tanks are still operating since 2010). Please check our list of international references.

The Float Spa Premium Floating Tank System is produced by us in European (EU with CE and EAC mark) and North-American version also.

Float Spa Premium Floating Tank System technical draw


Technological Innovations

The Float SPA® floating tank has been granted an international CE mark1, and incorporates the following innovations:


1. Hygienic water and flotation tank cleaning system


・Thermo-moulded (vacuum formed) antibacterial sanitary acrylic inside float tank/pod pool body provides the smoothest, most hygienic surface. Spacious, huge inside space. One of the biggest float pod in this industry.

Water reservoir tank (placed in the technical room) stores the complete amount of salty water when there is no floating session in the pod/pool

・ 0. Stainless steel metal grid filter in the drain of the pool as a first hair-trap and a trap for the lost objects (rings, necklaces, you would be surprised what we have found in this filter yet)

・ I. Glass-sand quartz pre-filter, very effective physical filtration (it is a requirement in many swimming pool standards)

・ II. Cartridge-type acrylic post-filter (5 micron fine) for physical filtration

・ III. High performance UV sterilizer against the germs and bacteria

・ IV. Electronically-operated disinfectant dispenser (for H2O2 or Chlorine) against the germs and bacteria

・ + V. Periodical water filtration using active carbon/charcoal! against the greasy and oily bits (colloids) from the skin, shampoo, perspiration, urine, hair dye, …

・ + VI. Periodically -only in some special occasions- we use a 1 micron fine filter

All of these filters are included in your Float Spa Premium Floating shipment!


2. Technological and operational advantages

・ Following every session, the total water quantity is filtered and disinfected automatically and the empty float tank is disinfected

・ Teflon-insulated heat cables integrated into the body of the float tank maintain SILENTLY a constant temperature of 96.8⁰F (36°C) (no noise of the waterflow during your float session, because there is no heat exchanger!!!)

・ The water preparation reservoir is passively -and silently- heated and heat-insulated and made from salt-proof, material

Stay in any position lid! The top lid can be stopped and can be left open in any position. You can leave it open as much as you wish (it is well balanced, so easy to lift even with 1 hand) and will stays like that during your session. If you are claustrophobic, it is important for you, by the way, floating tanks sometimes used as an alternative therapy against claustrophobia. The inside of our premium float tank/pod is huge anyway, you can hardly reach the “ceiling” if the lid is closed, so you you have plenty of space and air inside.

・ Integrated assistance (panic) button, 3 stainless steel inside grips, anti-slippery step-in area

・ Proprietary operating software (you can customize your floating session) with touch screen display

・ Menus in different languages, automatic welcome and good-bye speech

Emergency/Guest needs help signal, if it is activated

・ Energy-efficient technology, with individual energy uptake of 1.5 kW/h at most, and 0.004 kW/h during stand-by

 .  Overfilling sensor to avoid the mess of putting/pouring too much water in the pool

 .  Leakage sensor in the technical room to avoid any accident

・Optional Central Control Program for float centers to operate more units from one main display from the reception desk

・Optional Back-Wash System  – in this case the inside of the empty cabin can be cleaned easily with a normal hand shower and with normal tap water which goes to the drain automatically (the tap and the shower is not included in this price).

1 CE Marking on a product is a manufacturer’s declaration that the product complies with the essential requirements of the relevant European health, safety and environmental protection legislation.

3. Sensory Therapies

Prior to commencing the flotation session, the following additional integrated options may be selected:

・ RGB light therapy (62 LEDs!, 10 colours, beautiful reflections, various light programs)

Underwater sound therapy (14 pre-programmed tracks), with the possibility to attach external music source through a 3,5 stereo jack plug. You can even copy your own tracks to our sound card! You can play your own music if you wish!

FLOAT SPA PREMIUM® FLOATING TANK SYSTEM – TECHNICAL DETAILS                                        TARIC CODE: 9019-200000
THE WORKING METHOD OF THE FLOAT SPA PREMIUM FLOATING TANK SYSTEM: The floatation happens in the floating cabin on the surface of body-warm water mixed with 30% MgSO4 (food quality). The floating program takes 30, 60, 90, 120 or 180 minutes. The customer enjoys a short few minutes session with sound, (optional aroma) and light therapy at the beginning and at the end. In the middle there is a session in sensory deprivation where there is no light and sound, just a peaceful flotation experience. The water is cleaned and treated before and after every floating session in 4+1 different ways (I. acrylic super fine paper filter, II. glass-sand (quartz) filter, III. UV disinfection lamp, IV. chemical injection + V. periodically an active coal (carbon) filter is installed. If there is no floating session, the system cleans and circulates the water in the technical room every 2nd hour automatically. The customers need to have a shower before and after floating. The whole amount of „salt water” need to be changed yearly or after every cca. 800-1000 floating sessions (depends on the quality and the optical parameters of the water).
