Our tubs are designed for hot & tropical climates

Engineering for climate matters

Some of the other tubs on the market are manufactured for the temperate climates where they’re made; their insulation and chilling capacities don’t hold up in other parts of the country.

We live in Arizona and created our tubs to withstand the heat. Our well insulated tubs and insulated covers help maintain the cold temperatures of our plunges, meaning a colder plunge, less electrical load on the chillers, equalling lower electric bills and more energy efficiency over other peoples’ tubs.

Our cold plunge tubs chill to 39 degrees.

Our tubs were specifically constructed to withstand the temperatures of an Arizona summer, when it is frequently over 110 degrees. That makes them ideal also for the tropical climate of Hawaii.

Our iceless ice baths perform fantastically in other hot climates too, including Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Florida, desert California, New Mexico, Nevada, and Texas.

The main difference between an ice bath and a cold plunge is the method of getting the water cold enough for immersion.

Cold plunges, like our 1/4 horsepower cold plunge, use an electric chiller to keep the water cooled to an optimal 39 degrees. When you water is electrically cooled, your cold plunge tub is ready any time for a dip, no trips to the store or ice hauling needed.

Ice baths require an industrial ice maker at home or frequent trips to the store to buy a number of bags of ice to get the water cold enough to achieve sufficient results. That adds up. Unless you have a lot of cold storage at home, you’ll need to go to the store any time you want to take a plunge.

Yes! We love outdoor plunging ourselves. We do recommend keeping your tub under cover and away from direct sunlight for long periods of time.

In optimal conditions (stored inside under climate control or outside out of direct sunlight and kept under cover) the 1/4 HP gets down to 39 degrees, no ice needed.

If your cold plunge tub is kept at 45 degrees during an Arizona summer, it will cost you roughly $25/month depending the price you pay per kWh with your local utility company.

Be sure to rinse off well before getting in your plunge. Makeup, soap, lotions, and oils from your body will affect the sanitation of the water.

Only wear a swimsuit in your plunge, anything else is not recommended. Lint and laundry detergent soap will come off your clothing, causing the water to get dirty faster.

Put a mat down in front of your plunge. Don’t walk from where you rinse off to the plunge barefoot, where sandals and take them off right before you get in.

You can try using a “scum bug” to help soak up some of the oils. Also adding 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide (4.5 oz) will help with water sanitation.

Some other good options for sanitation are a chlorine free water stabilizer or our Sirona spa water treatment kit.

You can also purchase a spa vacuum from Amazon to help suck up some of the loose debris that may fall to the bottom of your plunge.

We offer a 1 year limited warranty. See more details here. We also offer awesome support should you have any questions or need help with your cold plunge.

We will provide you with tracking information as soon as your unit has been shipped. The shipping company will contact you prior to delivery to set up a time.

The only time we recommend adding ice to your cold plunge tub is in the summer in hotter climates, to help speed up the cooling time on initial fill up of your tub or during a water change, because you just can’t wait to get in. Be sure before turning on your plunge that the ice is floating well above the intake hole.

We built the best because we needed it.

We’re a family business

…born out of a difficult experience. In 2019 Matt Kuiper and his wife were traveling through Ecuador, when, while staying at a remote ecolodge in the Amazon Basin, Matt experienced a sudden onset of severe insomnia, anxiety, and depression.

For seven months Matt tried a number of different methods to treat these problems, including antidepressants, talk therapy, and natural remedies that provided little relief. Then Matt’s brother introduced him to cold therapy; he found a wellness center that offered cold plunging and started going every day; and through breathwork, daily ice baths, prayer, and mindfulnesss, he found relief and healing that turned his life around.

Then came COVID, which shut down his wellness center. Inspired by the immediate relief he experienced from cold plunging, Matt started looking around for an iceless ice bath to have at home. He found the models available were expensive, didn’t serve hot climates well, were expensive to run and maintain, and  the tubs did not provide a full, deep soak. So he took things into his own hands.
