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 Zen Float Tank brings everything we've learned into one amazing product.
Because of the huge amount of support we received on the Kickstarter last time, we thought it only made sense to come back and launch this new product on Kickstarter with the community that originally helped us get started. But we're not just back, we're back with the best thing to ever happen to the home floating market:
The NEW inflatable Zen Float Tank
This new tank is going to revolutionize how people experience the benefits of floating from their homes. It takes on an entirely different design, made from state-of-the-art drop-stitch technology and it is fully inflatable, unlike the original float tent.
Our goal with this new float tank is to make the setup process that much easier for owners, improve the durability of the tank and enhance the aesthetic of having a tank in your home.
With any new product, comes lots of new questions, so we compiled a list of FAQ's about the new tank to answer them all in one place.
FAQ About The Zen Float Tank
Q: What’s new about this tank?
We stuck with the original pyramid design for the shape of the tank because it allows condensation from the warm-water to run down the sides of the tank and back into the tub, preventing water from dripping off the ceiling and interrupting your float.
The Float Tent was made from stainless steel poles with a vinyl cover while the new tank is fully inflatable made from drop-stitch technology — similar to inflatable stand up paddle boards and kayaks.
Drop-stitching combines tens of thousands of finely woven threads connecting two pieces of polyester fabric. Each thread is evenly spaced between the two pieces of fabric, locking the unit into place and creating a rock-sturdy and solid inflatable product.
This new inflatable design is also more insulated than the previous vinyl cover because of the all the layering, making it 40% more efficient. This will help keep your tank and water warmer, and allows you to put it in less comfortable places like a basement or garage.
Heater Pads, Temperature Controller, Filtration
The new version will use the same heating pads, temperature controller, and filtration system as the previous edition. Thus, if you already have one of the original Float Tents, you can keep those and just purchase the new tank at a discounted rate (see below for details on upgrading your old zen tent).
The old tent’s dimensions were 8’ x 4’ x 6’, with a volume of 77 cubic feet. The new tanks dimensions are 9'10" x 4' 9 " x 6'5", with a volume of 99 cubic feet. This results in a 28% increase in space, with more head room and more room in the bed to float.
