    Probably not the greatest idea. Your body absorbs that water, you can literally drown or poison yourself after long enough.

    Yeah I don't think I would want to sleep in a pool of water. To not drown you would have to elevate your head and that would screw up your neck and back sleeping like that. I would rather sleep in a really comfortable bed in a bedroom that just simply has no windows.

    Are there subtitles in the isolation tank?

    Couple hours in one and I'm good to go. I wouldn't want to try to sleep in one, it would be freaky to get a mouth full of salt water and choke yourself awake inside a tank.

    I do like using them but never spent a night in one.

    At first this sounded true and sensical to me, but then I thought about stranded people waiting in the ocean for days before being rescued and realized it would probably take a longer time-table for this to occur than over a single night

    I slept in a room without windows (in a house, by my own free will, not a psych ward or solitary confinement) and I can tell you that is a pretty bad idea. In the beginning it's awesome because you sleep like a log, but the complete absence of light soon starts to fuck you up when you're trying to get up in the morning. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone. The guy who rented the room before me had the same experience.

    well seawaters hypertonic due to its high salt content which would prob extract water from ur body. the water in the tanks r prob hypotonic to ur body so some of the water may enter ur body. id b more concerned w) bein pruny

    not gonna lie, even with ur anecdotal story, a rm with no windows sounds amazing. my stupid neighbors has this bright night light lamp in the back yard. freakin annoyin as hell but its within the rules of the city so its ok :( even with the blinds, the light still manages to pierce thru into my rm & all the bed rms in my house r facing some sort of light

    From what I gather, they are both saltwater .Maybe to different extents, but the isolation tank should be safer if they have been around for more than a couple months without any deaths or renal failures

    Don't do it.

    You'll come out feeling isolated.

    Are there stories of people actually spending days in the ocean as opposed to spending days on something in the ocean? Because I feel like you would die from exposure pretty quickly just floating in the ocean.

    What's an isolation tank, exactly?

    I'm picturing the movie Altered States.
