What is a Dreampod?
The Dreampod is the most luxurious, full featured floatation tank in the market. It requires 500kilograms of epsom salt to get the solution just perfect for floating.
What was your inspiration in the design, and shape of the Dreampod?
Our vision was to create something that would be visually stimulating, eliminating any type of intimidation to beginner floaters. Based on our research and experience, we believe the floatation tanks MUST be inviting and welcoming as a rule of thumb. This will allow beginner floaters to feel most relaxed, increasing the chance of them returning for future floats. The Dreampod offers all aspects of comfort and safety in mind.
Are you using inferior branded components in the Dreampod?
All critical components are imported from the U.S or Europe and
hold certifications proving it’s quality from standard certification bodies.
Is the Dreampod fully automated and what does that mean?
The Dreampod is completely automatic, making handling and managing very easy. The Dreampod features an automatic filtration system, which will automatically kick in after each float. The Dreampod also sports a unique “twin-chemical delivery system”, allowing you to use a combination of two different disinfecting agents. Both are controlled by the Dreampod’s computer system. The highly sophisticated system will also allow you to automatically preset dosing schedules.
How is the Dreampod controlled and what kind of interface is used?
The Dreampod computer system requires an ethernet cable connection plugged into a local wireless router. After that, you can control the Dreampod through your PC, tablet or your smartphone, using Google Chrome, Safari or Firefox etc. Anything that can access Wifi will do. This is very convenient, especially during busy hours.
How would the concentrations of hydrogen peroxide or chlorine be monitored? And how often do you check?
The dosage is preset on the tank’s computer, with dosage in 5cc increments. You can also manually control the computer in adding the amounts of the hydrogen peroxide/ chlorine via the computer system as deemed necessary. The industry standard is about 15cc of hydrogen peroxide at the end of the day, and about 5cc between each session.
How do you test the specific gravity of the water?
We use a float hydrometer to test for the specific gravity of the water. It is a floating gauge/meter that reads the density of the water. You can also invest in an electronic hydrometer, which is more accurate to use and read.
Do you know the volume of the water once the tank is full?
The volume of water tested is about 900 litres at optimal float solution height. Volume can be increased if you desire a higher water level.
Does the system have a flow meter or something that will let me to know when we need to change the filter, or the water in the tank?
The control software has a built in counter which will record the amount of floats provided by each tank, giving you a figure to change your filters with. We can also use the flow of water of the pump to determine if the filter requires change. When the filter becomes filled, the water pressure of the pump will decrease. Hence, when the water exiting the outlet decreases significantly, it is time to replace your filter.
Is the Dreampod more spacious than other tanks?
Yes, the floating space/interior is larger than most tanks in the market, yet the Dreampod’s physical footprint is the same size as some of the smaller tanks available in the market.
What is the power requirement of the Dreampod?
The Dreampod requires a 220V/50/60Hz Single phase electrical supply to power its systems. Any certified electrician will be able to set up a 220V supply from your local electrical fuse box in one day. If this is a problem, than speak with us and we’ll work something out.
What is the power consumption of the Dreampod?
On the average, each tank consumes on the average 0.18kWh on the average a week, running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, inclusive of 40 floats a week. This is less than running an air conditioning system at home.
Is there a particular grade of salt we should purchase?
We recommend that you use Food-Grade pharmaceutical Epsom salt for the Dreampod. Not only will this provide the floater the most comfortable float, it will also preserve the running components of the tank. Lesser grades of Epsom salt can be used, however, due to the higher levels of impurities, lower-grade Epsom salt will oxidise faster in reaction to the oxygen in the air, causing it to turn into Manganese Oxide, a sticky brown substance which will tinge the float solution brown and leave sticky brown stains on the side of the wall. While this is absolutely safe and inert, its an aesthetic issue which may turn of some customers. You can source for salt in your country of origin, or you can purchase it from us directly.
What is the maintenance of the tank like?
It is very easy to clean around the motors and the pods. For the pump, just remove the engine box, and clean around the components with a damp cloth, soaked in warm water. Besides for this, you will need to change a filter bag once or twice per month, depending on how busy the Dreampod is. You will also need to add salt once per month, again, depending on how busy that tank is. Other than that, regular morning maintenance of wiping the tank down and getting it ready for business.
If something breaks down, how would I go about getting parts for repairs? And how long could I expect the pod to be shut down for?
It is important to note, we are the manufacturers. We are the direct link to the Dreampod, so there are no middle men involved in getting components. All parts would be sent with in 24 hours. Our trouble shooting team is available 24/7.
Do I need help with the initial setup? If so, would you or one of your employees come out to help with that? Would transportation/accommodations for this be an extra cost I would incur?
While the Dreampod is designed to be easily set up by anyone with handyman skills, we require that you send for one of our technicians to come in, and help with the initial installation. The Dreampod requires some adjustments; such as software set up, door alignment, leak testing etc, to be completed for the tanks to work at full operating capacity. We ask our clients to pay for his flight, as well as a few nights accommodation at a local hotel/motel. Nothing fancy needed, something clean and safe is fine.
How long will production take to produce my order of Dreampods?
Production for the Dreampod will be a maximum of 60 days. We will expedite shipping earlier if we are able to. In some cases, we can manufacture the Dreampod within 45 days. We plan to hold stock in the future, which will cut down the production time to a fraction.
How many tanks can I fit into a shipping container and how long is delivery?
One, or two pods will fit into a 20’ container, while three and four pods will fit into a 40’ container. Delivery can take anywhere between 10 and 25 days, depending on your location.
Will Dreamwater continue to design and create new floatation tanks?
YES, we are constantly developing new product for different niches. More info will be available as our products exit their mould.
