when owning a floatation tank

How do I charge for a floatation session?

Floatation sessions are typically charged between £40 to £65 per one-hour session in the UK and $45 to $95 in the United States. Having a high initial rate allows for greater flexibility on discounts, memberships, and for group bookings.

Set in a commercial setting a floatation session is usually charged based on a 60-minute session “total time in the Orbit”. However, different session times are selectable from 30 mins up to 3 hours with sliding pay scales between.

Turnaround time between customers

In a well-run floatation centre, it is possible to turn around the float room within 5 – 10 minutes, and because the Orbit totally empties between each float it is much easier to check the Orbit for cleanliness. The solution typically empties within 3 – 5 mins, being totally filtered when doing so. This usually means the Orbit is ready before the customer has been able to shower off and get redressed post their float.

Once the customer has left the room it’s a basic check of the room, replenish any consumables (Fresh Towels (if provided) Earplugs, Vaseline strips) Wipe down of any touched areas; and sanitised. Total customer time in the room is usually between 1 hour 15 minutes and 1 hour 30 mins;  this allows for 5 mins at the beginning for the customer to get undressed and shower off, and 15 minutes at the end to shower off and redress. Within a 12 hour day, it is possible to run 9 floats within a day.
