Are Float Tanks Sanitary?  Absolutely, Yes!

Are Float Tanks Sanitary? | Mill Creek FloatOne frequently asked question when it comes to float tank therapy is, ‘Are float tanks sanitary and how is the water cleaned?’

Since float tanks are meant to improve your overall health and wellness, it’s important that they are kept sanitary. But how does it happen?  The high concentrations of Epsom salt provide some natural benefits that help keep the water clean, but that on its own is insufficient. We look at the typical ways that spas and pools keep their water clean, and what float tanks do differently.

Chlorine and Bromine for Spa Water Sanitation

Chlorine and bromine are the most common chemicals in water treatment for recreational pools and spas.  They are highly reactive with other elements and molecules, and it’s through these reactions that they kill harmful bacteria and germs in the water. The benefit of chlorine/bromine is that they are always in the water, ready to kill any bacteria they encounter. In pool and spa care lingo, this is called ‘residual’.

The drawback to these chemicals is that as they kill bacteria through chemical reactions, disinfectant byproducts (DBPs) are created that can be hazardous to our health. Pools and spas are well-ventilated to combat the harm these may cause. Float tanks are more enclosed, however, increasing the danger of DBPs. For this reason, the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) does not allow chlorine or bromine to be used in float tanks. Continue Reading →
