This week is a wild one… we opened up an invitation to the float community to join us for a conversation with and about the Float Tank Association (FTA). Kevin Johnson, Shoshana Leibner, and Glenn and Lee Perry (all FTA board members) join the crew and several float center owners to have an earnest conversation about the state of the organization.

It’s a float podcaster party! Graham and Ashkahn from Float Tank Solutions/Float On/The Float Conference join us this week. With Dylan, they discuss the current hot topic of the Float Tank Association (FTA) and the need for the organization. They’ve been on the road, attending different health department events to discuss float tank water sanitation with the health inspectors and experts across several states.
They hold nothing back as they hit another favorite topic: Groupon. They talk about when they think it’s a good idea to run a campaign, and how we should be cautious about coordinating efforts with other centers. The conversation evolves to exploring the growth in the industry and how centers differentiate themselves when multiple businesses are in the same city.

The Float Tank Association (FTA) needs your help… and not just helping to decipher all the acronyms you need to know for this episode. The FTA is a volunteer-driven, and is comprised of a handful of float center owners and manufacturers. Together, they create standards to guide health departments and assist float owners in their daily operations.
Shoshana Leibner and the rest of the FTA team have been working to guide the Model Aquatic Health Code (CDC), which could have a big impact on the float world. The MAHC is a set of codes and guidelines, being pushed by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) for acceptance by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). The NSF is asking for NSF-certified requirements that could lead to expensive equipment requirements for float centers, so all float center owners have a vested interest in what’s happening.
