The Float Collective is a not for profit organization

connecting new and existing float centres

It's also a Facebook group

If you are in the early stages of starting up a float centre, you are in luck! We have collected the best free resources and listed the links below. There are thousands of blog posts, research studies, hours upon hours of podcasts, years of videos from the Float Conference, consulting offerings and so much more! Cancel your plans, you're going to be busy for a while. 


After you've devoured all that the open source internet has to offer, and developed a working knowledge of float tanks, send a request to join our Facebook group


Resources for starting a float centre

Our goal is to help others start, run, & refine their own float centers. A place to share what we have learned, to help educate and raise the quality of float centers. We wish to be a guide and companion to have alongside you during all of your successes and failures; providing encouragement and guidance when you need it most, even at three in the morning when everyone else is asleep and you’re covered in salt.

Podcast, consulting, round-table discussions

A Float Community Gathering

The Floatation Tank Association has been serving the worldwide floating community since 1981.

We are dedicated to serving the interests of float center operators, floatation tank manufacturers, educators, consultants and the floating public by creating standards and best practices that promote health, safety, sanitation, and the consistent dissemination of accurate knowledge and information about floating.

The FTA supports ongoing research into the many benefits of floating and offers float centers, float system manufacturers, scientists and the floating community opportunities to contribute to the knowledge base.

Join Graham and Ashkahn as they answer your questions on starting, running, and growing your floatation business.

Learn tips on soundproofing your rooms, filling your tanks, and protecting your favorite shoes from salt – by the founders of Float Tank Solutions, Float On, and the Float Conference.

Daily Podcast from Float Tank Solutions

This slightly outdated forum was the place to go for DIY float tank solutions. Most of the users and current information has moved into Facebook groups, but a wealth of relevant information remains.

to Join!

The Float Collective is designed for the following individuals:

  • Float tank and/or centre owners,

  • Float tank and/or centre operators, 

  • Float tank manufacturers and float related businesses (sleazy sales pitches not welcome)

  • Up and coming Floatrepeneurs 


When you request to join the group you will be asked questions about your background and interest in the Float Collective. If you don't match the above criteria, we're sorry, but these aren't the droids you're looking for. 

For general float enthusiasm, we recommend: The Floating CommunityFloatLove and The Float Tank pages. 

This is a platform for sharing information and asking questions about the operation and facilitation of float tanks/centers.  The intention is for only owners, managers and staff - or those in the process of becoming owners, managers or staff - of a float center to participate.  It is not intended to be a general public interest group about floating.  In sticking with this intention, we can keep the conversations focused on the float center operations and not on public inquiry about floating in general. Be sure to utilize the search function within the page as many topics have already been discussed at length.


Thanks, and stay salty!
