How much space do I need for a float cabin?

Can I install the cabin myself or do I require a contractor handle the installation?
We build and install our float cabins in-house, take it apart, pack it, ship it ready to be reassembled and plugged in. Various phases such as electrical wiring not already in place, ventilation, or any other cosmetic or structural requirements outside the scope of the float cabin such as building out a room would require contractors if you don't have the knowhow. We can work with owners who have their own trades to implement any construction or design ideas or requirements as they come about.
Are your cabins handicapped accessible?
Our cabins are custom built. Therefore, all efforts can be made to design a float cabin to meet your requirements.
What type of power do your rooms require?
Our cabins can run on either 110V or 240V power and require space in an electrical panel for one or two 30amp dedicated GFCI breakers per Cabin.
Does your cabin base fit through a standard door?
Yes, although being able to maneuver around corners should be taken in consideration. Ideally, placing the cabin base before the walls are erected (if its an option) would be best. Worst case, a section of existing walls would have to be cut out to slide base into the room. Otherwise, call us to discuss your space.
What type of plumbing requirements do your products call for?
Our Float Cabins are a completely isolated aquatic feature. Meaning they do not have to be drained or have a main drain or any outside plumbing fixtures attached to the system. You will need to fill the tank with water from a nearby source . The solution can be drained into a shower drain with the aid of a submersible pump if you need to move your float cabin at any point. For the most part, the solution stays in your float cabin cycling through the system periodical (on timers) in the cabin or holding tank if it is being used as a sauna with the Hybrid unit.

How durable is the material?
The Tank portion of the Fluid Float Kit is extremely durable. It's made with fiberglass and from the outside is rock-solid. You would need a drill to puncture it.
What if I can't swim?
No problem. You just step in, sit down, and lay back in only 10-12 inches of water. You can touch the bottom with your hands. You just let the warm salty water do the work of floating you around.
What about being in the dark?
That's up to you. There is a light switch in the float cabin that allows you to control the lights at all times. You can leave them on all through your float session. You can have music playing all through too if you like, and you can choose the music in advance. Floating is the best and fastest way to relax and many people find that silence and the dark help relax even more. But it's up to you, either way, floating is wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable.

How much Epsom Salt is needed for initial setup?
800-1000 lbs. We also recommend buying an additional 50-100lbs to replenish the solution for around a year.
How do you know when you have enough salt in the water?
The best way is to use a Hydrometer which is included with the purchase of your Fluid Float Kit. Salt is added until specific gravity is between 1.23 and 1.3.
Can I float if I'm pregnant?
Yes. Floating relieves all of the weight of your baby off of your body. Please consult with your physician before coming in.
Do I float naked?
Yes, but if you must, avoid an expensive bathing suit as the salt will discolour the material. A thin, tight-fitting fabric would be best to avoid feeling the weight against your body.
Where are you located?
We are in Downtown Winnipeg at the Fort Garry Place mall.

Is there a warranty on the Fluid Float Kits?
We have a 5-year warranty on all manufacturer defects that don't include the Spa pack. These mechanical parts are different, as there is a natural wear and tear like any machine and we can't say it will last forever due to the high salinity of the environment and proper care by the user. We can say, however, that we will replace any mechanical part that is faulty for one full year. It's our promise to our customers that anything they buy from us has been tested or used by us at our own float locations.
