Three years ago, we launched our company, Zen Float Co. on Kickstarter when we created the world's first affordable home float tent. Since then, we've sold tents all around the world and gotten hundreds of people floating at home. We've learned a ton about the challenges of floating at home and have taken that knowledge and used it to build our best product yet: the new inflatable Zen Float Tent.
The benefits of floating are so powerful that we want everyone to float! We want everyone to feel better, and to actually be better. We want people suffering from pain to find relief. We want athletes to perform better, and depression sufferers to feel alive. We want floating to be inexpensive and accessible!
The Zen Float Tank is essentially a relaxation environment. You can achieve deep states of relaxation and rejuvenation by removing the normal stimulus overload of every day life. Touch, sight, and sound are removed.
Touch: The tent has 10" of water that is heated to skin temperature (93.5°). This water is saturated with 800 lbs of Epsom Salt so you feel completely weightless. Shortly after hopping in, you will acclimate to the temperature of the water and air. As the water supports you, you begin to feel nothing: no hot or cold, and no gravity.
Sight: Inside, the Zen Float Tent is pitch black. You can open your eyes and still see absolutely nothing.
Sound: In a quiet room with your ears under the water, you will only hear a heart beat, and perhaps an occasional eyelid flutter. When you settle in and the senses are removed, you enter a state of total peace. You are free to relax, or dive into thinking and make connections like never before. Imagine freeing your brain from monitoring what's going on around it.
Since this is for the home, we wanted to make sure it looks great in any room. Our new inflatable design is a breeze to set up and looks fantastic right out of the box. We've used the same tried and true inflatable technology that can be found in popular stand up paddle boards. When inflated, the tent is completely rigid like solid walls. The barrier of air in the walls also acts as a natural insulator, making the tent extremely efficient.

In the last 40 years, the positive effects of floating have been scientifically documented and studied though hundreds of research studies. Papers have appeared in publications such as: The American Journal of Psychology, The American Journal of Social Psychology and Science Magazine. The benefits are unquestionable. What is questionable is why isn't everyone doing it?
Typically float tanks are in the $10K-30K mark, which for most people isn't affordable at all for home floating. We have priced the Zen Float Tank under $4,000 Why? We want to get a lot more people floating!
An average session at a float center costs $60, and floating once a week would cost around $3,120 a year! The Zen Float Tank allows you to float at your convenience, as much as you want, in the privacy of your own home.
In one year you'll spend nearly the same as you would in a Float Center, and you'll have a tank in your home for years to come!
Floating isn't just an anecdotal fringe practice anymore. We are now seeing incredible results backed by science. Dr. Justin Feinstein has just released his latest study on flotation therapy. Click on the image to read the entire paper!
Three years ago we were just 3 guys with a dream, a dream to make floating affordable. When we realized that water could be held in flexible affordable materials, the Float Tent was born! After a huge success on Kickstarter we began our journey as a company. We got a factory, a distribution center, hired a whole team and made it through 3 years of startup. It was not easy, but we made it. Now the new Float Tank brings everything we've learned into one amazing product.
This is truly a new chapter in home floating, and we're excited to be a part of it.
Risks and challenges
We've been at it for 3 years now and we've learned a ton about the challenges of floating at home. We've taken that knowledge and applied it to our best product yet. That being said, sometimes things happen. We've been very careful to select the best manufacturing partners using the latest technology in inflatable construction. We have working prototypes and are ready to scale up. Production delays are always a risk, but we're taking all the necessary steps to make sure we deliver on time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
