At Solitude Float and Wellness Spa, we practice the Float Tank Association’s North American Float Tank Standards and follow best practices to ensure quality, sanitation, and safety. Here’s how we achieve the highest sanitary and filtration results:
Each user is required to shower before entering the pods.
Between floaters, a Solitude staff member visually inspects the tanks for contaminants, and the water is filtered through a Micron Filtration and Advanced Oxidation Process.
The system’s custom X-100 micron filter is able to filter particles from the water to 1 micron in size and is both NSF 50 and FDA compliant for drinking water (Class 1 Filtration). Standard competitor pool and spa filter cartridges only filter to 20-30 microns and require regular cleaning. This is the first ever NSF 50 filtration unit that uses 1-micron bag filters—exclusive to Superior Float Tanks.
The Advanced Oxidation Process occurs when germicidal UV light (UV-C) and ozone react to generate the production of hydroxyl radicals. This reaction is known as the Advanced Oxidation Process, or AOP. Hydroxyl radicals (•OH) are the most powerful oxidation agents available, quickly destroying bacteria, viruses, pathogens and other contaminants that occur in water. Hydroxyl radicals also destroy chlorine- and bromine-resistant microorganisms, such as Cryptosporidium Parvum, Giardia and E. coli.
