How do I know the water is Clean?
The water is tested every day for hygiene, specific gravity, pH balancing, sterilisation and temperature. The Dreampod's filters screen the water down to as little as 1 micron (100th the size of a hair). The entire contents of the tank are flushed through and filtered 4 complete volumes of water between every guest. Fresh filtered water and premium epsom salt is added daily and the epsom salt Concentration alone (550kgs) does not allow for any bacteria to be present.
What if I'm claustrophobic?
This is the most common question from first-time floaters, but there is nothing to fear. You are always in control of your environment (you can play music, keep the lights on and have the lid open if you want) and many people with this worry report having no problems with their time in the pod. We ensure you are completely comfortable before your first float with us.
Can I Float when Pregnant?
Absolutely – pregnant women love to float! It is safe to do so between 12 & 37 weeks. Floatation therapy can relieve a lot of the aches and pains caused by pregnancy and research suggests that floating is also good for baby, We do, however, recommend you consult with your midwife or GP if you have any concerns. A float session makes a great baby shower gift!
