The Wave Room is essentially a room within a room. You enter the Wave directly from the shower. It is tall enough to step into without having to crouch, and is equipped with two grab bars inside the tank for leverage.
The Float Pod is more of a tank design, as it has a lid that lifts upward before you step into the water.
They may look entirely different, but both types provide you with the same floating experience.
Float tank water is generally cleaner than most swimming pools or hot tubs because only one person uses them at a time, they've showered right before entering the tank, they aren't sweating or wearing sunblock and aren't wearing swimwear which may have locked in harsh cleaning detergents in their fibers. And we take keeping our water clean very seriously.
The main factor keeping the the float tank water clean is the high salt concentration itself. Pathogens can't grow in such salty water (think of the Dead Sea). We sanitize by treating the solution with germ-killing UV light and an ozone generator between every client, and back that up by maintaining an active dose of hydrogen peroxide in the tanks at all time. If that weren't enough, filtering to remove oils and particulates is taken care of by a swimming pool-sized 1 to 10 micron filtration unit. We filter aggressively between every client, turning the whole contents of the tank over three to four times to keep our water sparkling.
