Floating, Duh

Hi Anthony,

This is a link to my teacher's tuning forks class info: http://myemail.constantcontact.com/A-Message-from-Order-of-the-Blue-Star.html?soid=1104773211478&aid=K0k4i6HiR2c

I tried the pondmaster but it didnt seem to do much. A combined system that does all the pump and filter is attractive, but it didnt seem to be getting any debris.

Thanks for the compliment on laying it out precisely. I should've done a youtube video going over the design too. I cant remember how much salt I used. I bought 1000 pounds. And about 4-6 months later, I bought about 500 pounds just to keep stocked but that should last for well over a year since its mainly just me floating.

That sounds like a good price. They are pretty unwieldy but not heavy. I have moved them in and out of the float room by myself (not without a bit of drama, but I've always managed to do all my tank stuff by myself ūüôā

Did I point you to the general site for float questions – http://www.floatqa.com/
And we have a group for metaphysical floatation tank discussion too – http://groups.yahoo.com/group/thedeepself/
And of course there's the big kahuna – http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/floattalk/

Hmm I wouldnt say that I maintain it throughout the day very much. But that's because I'm an inconsistent floater who does it only when I feel like it instead of everyday. Removing stress theoretically could be as easy as taking Holy Basil or Rhodiola, so they break down cortisol (the stress hormone). I'm actually getting more focused on supplements because of my tuning forks teacher.

Terrence,
 
Thanks for the quick and thorough reply (delayed response, I think not). Unless you're coming up to Palm Bay in September of next year, I still have a little planning to do before any action is underway! It's just a thought at the moment, but that's a start. And action, technically. The tuning forks are interesting. My mom has become very active in using them within the past year, and has several sets. One of the perks of going to visit!
 
That's an extensive pumping system. So do you no longer recommend the one listed in your store (the Pumpmaster), or did you even get a chance to use that one before switching to hydrogen peroxide? I fully agree that an inside tank is preferable to one left outside and exposed to the elements. I have just the spot for it inside, too, but was trying to compromise of course! I find it hard to believe that so few have contacted you about your design. Or easy, really, because you do lay everything out pretty concisely. Oh yeah, and was it about 750lbs of salt you put in initially?
 
I just got a shipping quote for the two containment tanks – $260 shipped or $210 for local pickup. Yikes! It is what it is though, and still cheaper than the alternative.
 
Thank you for extending your personal number and allowing my learning experience to be part of your blog. If it's easy enough to do so, can you remove my last name and email from the post? Merely to maintain privacy, for what that's worth.
 
 
Do you find that, with increased floating, the sense of stillness attained during the process is maintained throughout your waking day?
 
Anthony
