Escape Pod Advantage


There are specific tasks that a sensory deprivation tank must do well to give every floater the best possible float, and maximize the chances for the floater to have an amazing experience.  For float center owners, “amazing experiences” encourage repeat and enthusiastic floaters that tell the world about your business!  For float tank meditators, these aspects of the floatation tank experience are essential:

  1. Large interior float area to accommodate even very tall floaters:  Many tanks, pods, and even rooms, are too small for floaters (5’8″ and above) to float with their arms above their heads.  The URTH and Aphelion are built with taller floaters in mind, and are 56 inches wide by 97 inches long.  Floaters that are 7 feet tall can float comfortably with their arms above their heads!  For floaters that are not as tall, the extra room means less frequent contact with the sides of the tank during their float, which greatly enhances the float experience.
  2. Safe and comfortable entry and exit from the tank.  The URTH, Aphelion, and Explorer are easy to get into and out of safely.  Every Escape Pod come standard with two safety grab bars.  Because of the door placement, floaters can get into and out of the tank without crouching and from a full standing position.  All Escape Pods have a low step over height to make stepping into and out of the tanks easy and safe.
  3. Balanced air and humidity:  All Escape Pod models use an active air ventilation system.  This means a small fan gently blows fresh air into the tank during a float session.  (There are also redundant passive air vents.)  The fresh air keeps that heavy “stuffy” feeling from building up in the air, as well as CO2, and also helps control condensation on the interior of the tank.  You’ll notice that the air inside the tank warms up and is indistinguishable from the water temperature very quickly.  (Make sure the room you install the Escape Pod in can be kept between 75 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit at all times.  If the air is cooler than this, it may be bothersome during a float session, and will feel too cool when entering and exiting the tank.  Please contact us to discuss further.)
  4. Constant heating and monitoring of the solution temperature:  In every Escape Pod, under tank heater pads gently warm the Epsom Salt solution, and maintain a constant temperature at all times.  The pads are controlled by a custom splash proof digital controller that monitors the temperature of the solution as well as the pads themselves, to ensure they don’t get too hot.
  5. Very quiet:  Unwanted sound is the most difficult aspect to control in any float tank, pod or cabin/room.  All Escape Pods are very quiet, and do a great job of eliminating exterior as well as absorbing interior noises.  (such as breathing.)  We have found that, when using an Escape Pod in a commercial float tank center, Escape Pod tanks are extremely quiet.  As always, we recommend you install vibration isolation pads and a 3/4 inch or thicker plywood base beneath your Escape Pod to minimize low frequency vibration that enters the tank through the floor.  Additionally, we recommend putting your Escape Pod on a ground floor or basement level.  (Float tanks in general are too heavy for 2nd and above floors unless the building is very robust and has been reviewed by a structural engineer.)
