Other Questions from customers:

Questions about SCS:

1.       How many square meters are desired for the SCS? What’s the target capacity for each SCS? How many squares are needed for each chamber? Each one enjoys one chamber in the cave right?


It depends on size of the room but too big is not so good - salt is heavy. People enjoy the therapy all together. The size of each spa depends on size of room available. they can be very small to very big.


2.       I see we need 15 tons to build the salt chamber in the cave, so this means totally we need 15 tons for a cave?



It depends on size - but average weight depends on design - not everything is salt - there are some other designs wityh wood, ceramics...but 15 tons is average.


3.       Regarding the salt, so we need to import or use locally? Do we need to import the generators and other equipments from USA?


We would prefer to use local salt and all local materials - to lower the cost.


The generator we buy from supplier in USA and Canada - the dropping tower we manufacture - it is the cheapest and very simple device but it gives lot of moisture to the air. The generator is using laser and gives dry air but it is very expensive - $11 000.00 - dropping tower is about $2000.00 and is preferred due to price. Everything we can manufacture and build in China.  



4.       Now, we are searching customers who are interested in SCS? So, if they are interested in, we should provide them training. How long it will take and about which aspect?


The training for operator of Salt Cave Spa is very simple - 45 minutes people relax, inhaling salt air - 15 minutes is for break where we do ventilation for new people coming in.


We need to keep no more then 50% moisture.


5.       Do we need a professional consultant in SCS? How many key staffs do we need in each SCS? According to different situations, we give our customers different sessions, so how many consultants are enough for a SCS?


There is one operator needed however yoga classes or other activity is available but those are conducted by professionals who contract time with each salt cave spas.


6.       If some customers have certain diseases, can we prevent it from infecting the other?


Salt Cave air is salty - it kills bacteria The environment of Salt Cave Sap is very sterile from bacteria because of the salty air. After each session of 45 minutes the SCS is ventilated for new session.

7.       For our current customers, people come to our SCS for curing some diseases or for relaxation.


It is used for relaxation - the salt walls prevent radiation from outside so the relaxing in dark cave has unique properties. Quiet time is needed during each session - unless it is session for people with children.


8.       How about the maintenance cost of the Cave?

The maintenance of Salt Cave Spas is simple - the evaporation tower needs salt and water supply, ventilation every 45 minutes - every session, the cost of maintenance is very low. Electric is only 12 V - most of the time we use Solar Batteries to power our Salt Cave Spas.

        How long it will take to build a general SCS? about 4-6 weeks - it depends on design and size.
How long we can open it from the time we want to build SCS?  When customers are ready to build SCS they need to place none refundable deposit of $5000.00 to get on waiting list. At this time we have 4-6 months waiting list. How does it look in China - can we go with the same system in China?
  The general equipments are one dropping tower, one generator, right?  It is up to the customer how he wants to design his spa. Dry salt air generator is expensive - about $11 000.00 so most of the time our Salt Chamber Dropping Tower making wet salt air is preferred - about $ 2500.00 per tower - one is adequate for small size spa.
And anything else? - Wooden chairs, Light Therapy, - music systems are generally installed by owners of Salt Cave Spas.  
        How long can investors take the cost if everything goes as predicted. Most investors recover their investment cost in just few years. Our Salt Cave Spas are great investments and they are in great demand - we also contact doctors informing them of Salt Cave Spas in their locations so they can send patients to our Salt Cave Spas for treatments.
