This Halloween, we’re busting your floating fears! One of the top questions we hear has to do with the cleanliness of our Float Pods. REST assured! True REST Float Pods not only meet, but exceed national standards from the Float Tank Association of America. In fact, regular testing shows that our pods are more sanitary than your pool or hot tub.
Here’s how we make sure YOUR health always comes first…
We utilize both UV (ultraviolet) and Ozone treatment in our Float Pods, both of which run constantly when the pod is not in use, and after each float session.
All water in the Pod is turned through our purification systems three and a half times, ensuring that not a drop is overlooked.
We like to keep it natural—both UV and Ozone are derived straight from the incredible power of nature. Ozone is responsible for the fresh smell in the air that follows a thunderstorm; it’s a byproduct of lightning bolts. UV traditionally comes from the sun, whose rays beam down on the planet and sustain life.
What’s so great about Ozone and UV? Here’s a brief summary of why we chose these two powerhouse methods for maintaining flawless pod water.
Ozone, also known as O3 is comprised of 3 oxygen atoms. O3 is unstable—which makes it release one of its atoms. This released atom becomes a free radical (an atom with “stray” unpaired electron which is left seeking something to bond with).
What does this free radical bond with? Anything unwanted in the water! As soon as Ozone comes in contact with anything foreign it is quickly oxidized, and thus purified.
It has been found that Ozone is 50 times more powerful then chlorine, while also killing bacteria 3,000 times faster than it. Ozone eliminates bacteria, mold and yeast, as well as organic material and viruses—while not removing dissolved minerals, such as the 1,200 pounds of Espsom Salt that is in your pod!
Ozone treatment also leaves zero odor, and reverts to pure oxygen, leaving no trace.
The sun is nothing short of incredible, and the power of its ultraviolet rays are no exception. Many of earth’s inhabitants, such as us, have an outer covering (skin) which allows us to tolerate a certain amount of the sun’s power; bacteria, viruses and molds, on the other hand, have a very low tolerance for UV rays.
UV works to purify by damaging cellular DNA—when anything undesirable in the pod meets these purifying rays, they are killed. UV treatment protects against viruses (including Hepatitis, which is resistant to chlorine), molds and bacterias.
Once again, no chemicals are needed and no byproducts or odors are left behind, leaving our water clean but unadulterated.
You’ve probably heard: each Float Pod contains a whopping 1,200 lbs of Epsom Salt—making for a solution that is nearly 100% sterile right from the start! There’s so much salt in each pod that if we added much more the water would actually start to crystallize.
Your Float Pod’s water might just be the purest water you’ve ever experienced! Along with our 100% satisfaction guarantee, you’ve got nothing to lose! Forget fear and REST easy with True REST.
