In a perfect world, you could just pour water and salt into a float tank and it would stay pure and clean and fresh and salty forever. In the real world, conditions in the water are constantly changing, so keeping your water in perfect condition takes a fair amount of work and vigilance.
Water that isn’t maintained properly can lead to bad float experiences and become unsanitary and unsafe.
We test the condition of our water twice a day using a variety of measurements, basically one for every important variable water condition. Because some of our tests take a bit of time, we gather water samples from the tanks in between floats and perform measurements later when we aren’t busy transitioning rooms and checking in floaters.
Everyday, we check the following conditions in our tanks – temperature, temperature setting, filter psi, water depth, specific gravity, hydrogen peroxide concentration, alkalinity, and pH levels.
