Come find out what took us years of sleepless,

salt-covered nights to learn ourselves!

If you’re looking to start a float center or add a float tank to an existing wellness practice, you might be stumped on where to start.

The learning curve for operating a float tank can be pretty steep, and without the proper resources, you could be costing yourself more money in the long run. Even if you’re a savvy business operator, participating in this workshop will ensure that nothing is missed in your new, salt-filled venture.

Learn how to plan, build, run, and grow your center at our How to Start a Center Workshop happening the two days before the Float Conference!

The Workshop will take place on the two days before the Float Conference.

Over the day and a half of training, we’ll cover…


It can be overwhelming to think about everything you need to consider when constructing a float tank center. You’re investing so much in your center’s build out that you want to make sure to get it right.

Making the right decisions at the beginning can save you lots of money in repairs, hours of cleaning, and make sure you’re providing an ideal float.

Some Topics We’ll Cover:

  • Choosing a Location
  • Float Room Layout
  • Soundproofing
  • Temperature Control
  • Protecting Your Building from Salt


It’s surprising how much work goes into maintaining ‘nothing.’

Cleaning your filters, replacing UV bulbs, deciding what type of Epsom Salt to use…the list starts to grow and grow, and each one is vital to running a clean and sanitary float tank.

We’ll teach you how to keep your float tanks up to snuff, and how that fits into the flow of running your center.

Some Topics We’ll Cover:

  • Balancing Your Tank Chemistry
  • Different Types of Sanitizers
  • Pump and Filter Care
  • Cleaning and Maintenance Schedules
  • Health Department Regulations


We’ve all come into this industry with the same basic goal: to share float tanks with the world.

But getting customers requires more than just building a float center and waiting.

We’ll explain the float-specific marketing tactics that have worked for us, and break down the basic finances of running a float center.

Some Topics We’ll Cover:

  • Generating Word-of-Mouth
  • Pricing Structures and Memberships
  • Using Social Media Effectively
  • Cost to Start a Center
  • ROI Calculations using real numbers

We are Float Tank Solutions and at our float center, Float On, we’ve been through it all. We’ve tested different types of soundproofing, replaced our floors and walls to handle saltwater, and researched water chemistry to keep our tanks pristine. In short, we’ve made all the mistakes so that you don’t have to.

Join us before the Float Conference to learn everything you need to know to make your center a success.
