We feel we have created the most functional and innovative tank on the market. Our experience in the Float industry lead us to believe a better tank could be made. We own Float Therapy in Marysville, CA. This is a 3 room float center that has been open for a little over 2 years. We have experienced all the highs and lows and learned the following key lessons along the way. 1. Heating mats are not reliable 2. Inline heaters are not practical for long floats. 3. Skimming is a form of torture. 4. skimming sucks. 5. Did I mention I don't like skimming? 6. Sediment is difficult to remove from the bottom of the tank. 7. There is not enough oxygen introduced in the water. 8. Dehumidifiers are necessary. Below, over the next month we will discuss what we have done to remedy all of these issues.
Heating Done Different
UPDATE: BELOW WAS OUR ORIGINAL DESIGN FOR OUR HEATING ELEMENT. WE FOUND AN EVEN BETTER WAY TO HEAT OUR ORION, AND THAT'S SAYING A LOT! STAY TUNED.
The Orion Float Suite comes with radiant heating (hydronic heating), Why? I own a float center (Float Therapy) located in Marysville, CA and my current rooms came with heating mats. Simply put, heating mats don't last! They failed within 1 year. My current rooms are built behind a wall so the heating mats are impossible to change. My workaround, I installed inline heaters. These work fine for short floats but if a clients wants to float for more than 90 minutes they are unable to. After 2+ years of owning a float center I firmly feel radiant heating is the best option. Our heating system allows customers to float for as long as they like and our system is extremely reliable. We created our radiant heating system with zero joints under the tank. All joints are visible in the equipment room. Additionally, for fail-safe measures we have installed 3 redundant lines.
