Pool, Spa, & Float Regulations

As you've probably discovered by now, float centers will need to be approved and audited by a local health department agency. At this time, not all health departments have specific codes or regulations for float centers. A float center may be classified as a pool or spa, a tattoo parlor, or a hair salon.

The most effective way to find the regulations that apply to your center is to visit your city, county, or state's health department website. That said, we've done our best to find standards for many cities and counties in the US - please help us keep this up-to-date, by sending us any updated codes you find.
