Hi All,


We are in the process of doing feasability and choosing a Tank/Pod for our proposed 3-4 tank center is proving more challenging than i had hoped. We are in a good position in terms of funding and i would love to hear some opinions on how other would approach the matter of which pod/tank to go for. Ideally i would like to be able to provide the best, most sterile float possible without the use of chemicals.



Appreciate any thoughts on the matter?



Regards,


Chris

I decided not to think about money when it came to the tough choice of which tank, pod or room to use. I'll be using Oceant Float Rooms in my center. I should people pictures of the tank styles, and then show them pictures of the room and they immediately say they want to get into the room as soon as possible.

If money were free I'd go with 2 Floataway Tranquility tanks and 2 home made float rooms. The home made float rooms would be made handicap accessible.


Also in my opinion you can have benign sanitation in any tank with a good UV unit and use H2O2. On top of that, make sure your filter can house carbon filters. That way you can use the cheaper ones until you need a good cleanse, at that time you swap in a carbon filter for a few cycles. Magic.

I'd also like to add that, since money is real in that you want whatever you are creating to cash flow, the Escape Pod does a superb job as the cheapest commercially made tank.

Can I ask how you're approaching funding? That's what I'm working on, and since we don't have a pile of cash, I'm trying to source investment dollars without taking on too many partners, or lose majority control. That's the hardest part I've come across so far.

Both my partner and I currently have good paying careers and fortunately we are able to fund this with savings. The big thing about the project for us is to avoid financing and any unnecessary outgoings (interest, balloon payments etc).



Appreciate your thoughts on the I-sopod and Float Lab. I don't see the Float lab mentioned much on these boards. I assume that their cost turns a lot of people off.

I-sopods hands down... Although float lab is pretty awesome too. From a customer point of view, the I-sopods are cool and sleak, and less intimidating. Also, they're easier to move if the need arises, at least easier to move than a room.

If money weren't a thing, I would go for a room over a pod.


For cleanliness, it's probably hard to beat the Genesis (just looking at the design, I haven't got to test one)


Building your own is also pretty viable if you're going with an open design or room.
