additional costs to receive and install a float pool
Crating is $180 per pool.
The cost of freight depends on some moving variables. Before submitting your order we can get you an accurate quote on freight. We are located in the Midwest, and as of January 2018 the average price to a commercial location in California for one pool is about $800. Two pools can be stacked together and shipped to the same address for about $1,100.
There are some other costs involved with getting your Mandala float system functioning:
- Plumber to assemble filtration equipment: $400 (or free if you do it yourself)
- Electrician to hook up components $500
- Contractor to frame and insulate pool surround: $400 (or do it yourself)
- Miscellaneous materials $300 (filtration system tubing, caulk, grab bars)
- Stereo receiver $150
- Philips Hue lighting system $180
- Smartphone or tablet for lights and music automation $200
- Outlet timer for filtration system $35
- Solid surface pool surround and splashguard $500
So the costs that are specific to purchasing, receiving, and installing a Mandala float system add up to about $14,500. With the average cost of a float tank coming in around $16,000, we feel you are getting exceptional value with building your own custom Mandala float room.
An essential component in any float room is some kind of room heat. We recommend an overhead infrared heater, which will cost about $1,000 including paying an electrician to hardwire it. A much cheaper option in warmer climates is a simple wall mounted heater, such as an Envi which is about $140.
Once your pool is installed you will need some kind of solid surface around it, such as tile or acrylic panel. In our float center we used cultured marble for the pool surround and splashguard, shower pan, and shower walls. We spent about $3,800 per room on marble (including spacious custom showers). The cost of tile should be slightly less than that. If you're going for the extreme budget option, a prefabricated shower will start at about $400.
cost of building a float center
In any buildout there is going to be HVAC, electrical, plumbing, framing, and permitting costs. In some areas an architect is optional below a certain cost of build out. The overall cost of building a float center varies dramatically, and depends on major factors such as:
- cost of living in your area
- existing infrastructure of your building
- square footage
- the materials you choose
If you can dream big and be creative with keeping it affordable, you are going to make an amazing space.
A note about HVAC. Ventilation systems for open float rooms do not need to be complicated. Because of the shower you will most likely be required by local code to have an exhaust fan in the float room. In our center we do not even use our exhaust fan. We drilled a 3" hole in the ceiling for passive intake, and the hot humid air naturally leaves through the duct work of the exhaust fan. The room is very comfortable while floating, and at night we put on a pool cover to let the room rest and dry completely overnight. Because this works great for us, we recommend you keep your HVAC system simple.
