The float life of the storage system is the length of time it will last before it needs replacement. When you create a storage system you can choose whether to limit its life by time, by throughput, or by both. The float life does not apply if you have chosen to limit the storage lifetime by throughput only.

HOMER uses the float life to calculate the storage bank life.
