Best Sanitation Practices
A Quiet Place Floatation Spa complies with stringent health and safety regulations.
I use my floatation Pods myself so I make sure the Pods are pristine!
— Richard. Owner of A Quiet Place.
Our float pods are Sanitized per the requirements and guidelines set forth by the US Float Tank Standard Sanitation and Safety Requlating Committee. Our state of the art purification system removes particles to 5 micron (5/100th a human hair). Our Pod filtration process runs 24/7 with the exception when being used. At which time the Pod filtration process completes at minimum 3 turnovers between each user session.
Each Pod room maintains a daily log for each of their float Pods, recording:
- Water Level (minimum of 12”) with Water Temperature (ideal range 93.5˚-95.2˚ F)Water levels
- Hydrogen Peroxide (in ppm) – Min-Max: 20-100, Ideal Range: 30-40
- Ozone (Max: 0.05ppm air concentration)
- UV Ultraviolet Light
- Water Level (minimum of 12”)
- Specific Gravity (1.24-1.28)
- pH (7.2-7.6)
- Total Alkalinity (80-120ppm)
Each Pod and bathroom are maintained between uses. All electrical equipment, pump equipment, and disinfection equipment is UL and/or NSF certified.The inside of the tank above the solution line will be cleaned daily with a sterilizer.
Dissolved in the spa water is 1,000 pounds of Epsom salts. The salt maintains a bacteria-free environment that is a natural disinfectant. Water sample studies conducted by the Industrial Testing Laboratories in New York City have certified that no pathogenic organisms of any kind (bacteria, virus, yeast, mold, etc.) exist in this solution. Additionally, our Pods are meticulously cared for and maintained in pristine condition at all times. After each use, the entire volume of the solution is completely filtered with a state-of-the-art filtration system, using both ozone and Ultraviolet (UV) light and a Pure Premium Spa Filter Cartridge. The filtration process completes at minimum 3 turnovers between each user session.
(UV), The world’s leading experts applaud ultraviolet (UV) as a pool disinfection. The Professional Pool Operators of America state that UV is “extremely effective” and is “the strongest oxidizer available to pool operators.
How does UV work?
Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection involves the application of germicidal UV wavelengths to water, which damages microbial cell components and thereby prevents cell replication and renders pathogens harmless. Applied at conventional UV doses, there is little to no known formation of regulated disinfection by-products associated with UV disinfection, which is an advantage over chemical disinfectants (e.g. chlorine)
We also use Ozone to increase the sanitary model!
Ozone, known to chemists as O3, is active oxygen, one of nature’s basic elements. It is most commonly recognizable after thunderstorms by its sweet, fresh smell. Ozone is the safest, most effective water purifier available. It maintains water’s soft, clean and crystal clear appearance, while adding no harmful chemicals. After ozone does its job, it quickly reverts to oxygen, creating an enriched oxygen and bacteria-free air supply in the spa. All water is simultaneously run thru a Pure Premium Spa Filter Cartridge which is changed out every 3 weeks. The water within the Pod is automatically filtered between each customer, and further cleanliness is assured as we require all customers to shower before and after each float session.
