Beginner’s Guides from Everywhere!

Beginner’s Guides from Everywhere!

If you’re not familiar with the Beginner’s Guide, it’s basically our intro brochure at Float On. About 5 years ago now we made the creation files easily available so folks could edit it as they pleased and sent it out to everyone with an open invitation to do with it as they pleased for their own centers. We know most centers don’t have graphic designers on staff so it seemed like a nice way to help others have reliable, easy to access information for their clients and also serve as a way to save them time and money from having to create their own.

The result of this is that years later, dozens and dozens of centers have a version of these brochures, some of them not even realizing where they originated from. Naturally, we’ve taken a copy from all the centers we’ve visited and we thought we’d share some of them with the rest of you.

The Relationship Between the MAHC and Float Tanks

The Relationship Between the MAHC and Float Tanks

The MAHC stands for the Model Aquatic Health Code. This is a document put out by the Centers for Disease Control that is a set of guidelines for recreational water sanitation and operations.

The MAHC is what is called a “model code,” which means it is not a regulation in and of itself.

The MAHC includes everything from the process of getting permits…

A New Year, a New Research List

A New Year, a New Research List

When we first released the floatation research list back in 2011, it was as close to a comprehensive list as we could create. It was put together in an effort to illustrate that sensory isolation was a thoroughly studied practice and there was scientific evidence for the health claims we were making.

Many float centers adopted this list for their own uses and put it on their sites, spreading the information and making it more available. 

In this post, you’ll learn about the updates made to our float research list.

Should I Have One or Multiple Styles of Float Tank?

Should I Have One or Multiple Styles of Float Tank?

If you had every model and type of float tank you’d be running the Burj Khalifa of float centers, with an estimated 38 unique float tanks, which include pods, custom open pools, cabins, vertical tanks, and inflatable or portable float devices currently on the market (not even counting old models).

This is all to say that there are a ton of options out there when considering tanks for your center.

Whether you’re opening a two-tank center, or a bajillion-tank center, do you want all the same model, or will you have some variety?
