"This place is really incredible and it's just getting started. We played an open mic there this past week and was blown away with how great the vibe is there. We'll definitely be back!"
"Tonight I as invited here for a float session and had literally no idea what to expect.
The float station was absolutely stellar and I'd highly recommend it. More importantly that I have to say something about the place overall.
All I can say is that it exceeded any expectation I may have had. The space has an absolutely incredible flow and feeling as do the people running it. It's worth finding your way here for one of their many unique offerings, which are too vast for me to list. Can't say enough good things about my experience and truly look forward to spending some more time here."
"I love this space. The space in incredibly open, the people were so kind and welcoming, the art was amazing and it was very easy to get to. I love, love, loved this space and will definitely be back to it!"
"This place is amazing. Greeted with warm welcomes as soon as you walk in the door. Amazing art work and incredible people. Can't wait to go back."
"Highly recommend that you check out The Nova Sanctuary! Experience floating in a pristine and inviting environment. Check out the Incredible art gallery, yoga classes, reiki, and so much more , this place has it all."

The float pod and room is a meditative experience that is therapeutic physically and emotionally. It is very easy and natural to make this your home away from home ♥"
How is the Float Tank Sanitized?
The highly sterile salt water is fully filtered three times between each float through a 1 micron pool filter (that’s 1/100th the diameter of a human hair!) and is sanitized with a disinfectant (Ozone) and UV light.
One sanitation method for many float centers, but requires a separate component called an ozonator (sometimes this comes standard with a brand of float tank, while other brands offer it as an add on). An ozonator is a unit that injects Ozone gas into the filtration system as water circulates through it when the pump is running. Ozone gas has a much higher ORP of 2.07V.
Ozone could work as a primary sanitizer, especially in the single-bather environment of float tanks, but since it is not present in the water constantly, ozone is generally only accepted as a secondary system in pool regulations. Because ozone is a gas which oxidizes as it bubbles through the water, there’s not ozone in the water at all times (as would be the case with chlorine, bromine or H2O2). In places where health departments require a residual as a way to ensure water sanitation, ozone cannot be used except with chlorine or bromine.
Ozone is, however, still widely recognized as a legitimate form of sanitation, especially in terms of health departments, and is legitimately a strong sanitizer despite being used as a secondary unit.
Typically used only for additional or secondary disinfection. UV helps remove chloramines from chlorinated water (the dangerous chlorine by-products that are in the water and air), and, as mentioned, works well with H2O2 to disinfect the water.
On top of super-charging H2O2’s ability to disinfect, UV systems have ability to target certain organisms (such as Cryptosporidium) which are tolerant to most other forms of disinfection, including chlorine, making it an excellent choice for a secondary sanitation with just about anything.
UV is the same as ozone in the sense that it only works while water is passing through the UV unit in the pump system, and does not leave a residual or buffer in the water. UV systems also require special bulbs and a degree of ongoing maintenance, and because of the high density of the float tank water, powerful units are necessary.
