Open Floataround

The Open Floataround circular pool is an open-air design the completely removes all feelings of claustrophobia. The pool is designed for one person or two people to float together (couples, parents with a young child, people with elderly parents, etc.) This is one of the models chosen by Dr. Justin Feinstein of the Laureate Institute for Brain Research (LIBR) in Tulsa, OK. (show picture of LIBR open floataround)
The Open Floataround can be freestanding with sides you step over, or sunken into your floor. The technical pack is curved to fit the pool if installed in the float room.


Open Floataround (8’ diameter) – $30,750


Outside diameter: 8’0.5” x 18”

Volume of Solution:

At 11” depth: 317 US Gallons (requires 1,320 lbs of salt)

Weight when full:

3,428 lbs

Floor loading: 0.464psi
Technical Pack: Curved to match product (can be next to pool or in an adjacent room) 45.5” long x 17” high x 20” deep
Remote Control Unit: We advise locating the unit in the reception area where the LAN cables terminate. Dimensions 8” x 4 ¾” x 1.5” (wall mounting bracket provided).
A power outlet is required near the remote unit for the music source (not provided). A 3.5mm jack lead (39” long) is provided to connect the music source to the remote unit. A shelf next to the remote unit is useful to hold music source.
Electrical Supply: USA and Canada: 2*, single phase, 208-240V three-wire (“two hots, neutral and ground”) 60Hz AC, 20A breaker and two gang-back wired sockets. The mating plug and cable t our equipment must also be supplied by your electrician (We recommend installing the second supply cable as above for upgrade options such as silent air heating). Any other supply, including 120 volt, requires consultation at extra cost. Floataway needs to know the supply voltage in every case.
Data cable: 3 runs of Cat6 LAN cable terminated in female RJ45 sockets from the float room to your reception area.
Water Supply: This is a stand-alone product, not connected to the water supply, but we recommend installing a water faucet in the float room for cleaning and maintenance.
Shower: A shower must be installed in every float room. We recommend an open-shower (request our info for preparing an open float room).
Drain: No drain required for the Open Floataround (unless required by local regulation), but a floor drain is strongly advised and necessary for an open shower.
HVAC: Minimum one air exchange per hour required. The air temperature must be very close to the water temperature, thermostatically controlled in the room. Note that separate, silent air heating will be required to achieve this. Relative humidity (RH) target 80% in the room. Ventilation to be as silent as possible with a low-speed fan and manual switching in the room.
Flooring: Must be strong enough, waterproof, non–slip, bunded to 4”, level under the product and we recommend a floor drain (we have a document on extensive technical information).
Room Lighting: The room requires an independent bright light for cleaning and maintenance. The product has dim-room lighting when in use (which switches with pool light).
Room Surfaces: Wet room code. Windows should be made dark.
