WARNING: Prolonged immersion in cold water can lead to hypothermia or other health hazards.

Hypothermia is a medical emergency caused by prolonged exposure to very cold temperatures and the body loses heat faster than it can produce it. Normal body temperature is about 98.6°F/37°C. When body temperatures drop below 95°F/35°C it is considered hypothermia. Fetal damage in pregnant women; and Unconsciousness and danger of drowning.


To Reduce the Risk of Injury:

  1. The water in a cold plunge should never be below 37oF. Before entering the cold plunge, measure the water temperature with an accurate thermometer.
  2. The use of alcohol, drugs, or medication before or during cold plunge use may lead to unconsciousness with the possibility of drowning.
  3. First time users should limit the use of the cold plunge to one minute. Experienced users should limit their sessions to 10 minutes.
  4. Do not use while under the influence of alcohol, anticoagulants, antihistamines, vasoconstrictors, vasodilators, stimulants, stimulants, hypnotics, narcotics or tranquilizers. The use of alcohol or drugs can greatly increase the risk of fatal hypothermia in cold plunges.
  5. Do not use if you have one of the following symptoms: Dizziness, lightheadedness, chest pain, palpitations.

Risk of Serious Injury or Death

Long hair can become entangled in the drain or other openings of this cold plunge tub, potentially leading to scalp injuries or drowning.


To prevent accidents:

  1. Secure long hair in a tight bun, braid, or ponytail before entering the cold plunge tub. Loose hair poses a higher entanglement risk.

To prevent accidents:


  1. Never leave children unattended near the cold plunge tub. Even a moment of unsupervised access can be deadly.
  2. Carefully supervise anyone who may not be aware of the entrapment risk, such as young children or people with disabilities.
  3. Instruct users to keep their limbs away from drains, filters, or other openings in the cold plunge tub.
  4. Inspect the drain and other openings regularly for damage or debris buildup. Clean them as needed according to the User Manual. 
  5. Regularly have a professional check your cold plunge tub and make sure it is in good, safe working condition and that drain covers are in place and not cracked or missing.
  6. Consider using drain covers designed to prevent entrapment, especially if you have children who will be using the cold plunge tub.
  7. Install a fence or barrier around the cold plunge tub to restrict access, particularly if you have young children.

This user manual contains all the basic information you need to set up, operate and care for your new cold plunge. Please read through it before setting up and using your cold plunge. Always scan the QR code on the top of the lid to pull up the setup videos and FAQ. 


**SETUP INSTRUCTIONS:**

  1. Place the Cold Plunge on an even surface in a garage, well covered deck or patio. 
  2. Leave 6 inches between the back of the plunge and any wall or object for room for the lid to open back. Make sure the floor can support 1000 lbs.
  3. Allow the plunge to settle 4 hours after transport 
  4. Fill the cold plunge up with water (2/3 full) and adjust water levels up or down after you see how much water you displace.
  5. Once filled with water, plug in to a 110-120V outlet using our GFCI protection. Extension cords should be three pronged if used. Our sy
  6. Check that the pump is working (feel water jet). Set the dial on the side to max on the pump.
  7. Check that ozone is working. Slide the switch on the side of the ozone timer in the control box to “outlet.” You will hear a faint hissing sound. Then switch back to “schedule.”
  8. Test LED lights. Press power button on and off.
  9. Set the temperature. Hold the “set” button until it beeps. Then press the down arrow button until the desired temperature is reached. Hold the “set” button again until it beeps to set.

**HOW TO SET OZONE TIMER ON SCHEDULE:**

  1. Set time of day by twisting dial until time of day matches the number on the dial.
  2. Set schedule by pulling up pins for the desired schedule the ozone will run.

**Maintenance Tips and Safety Protocol**

- IMPORTANT! Unplug or turn off using power button per safety instructions.

-Always have power run through GFCI protection. 

-If using an extension cord, make sure it has a ground or three prong plug.

- First cool will take 24 or more hours. The outside of the unit will feel hot to the touch. This is normal and will balance out when it reaches the temperature it will be maintaining. Outside can feel hot to touch, especially at lowest temperatures.

- Keep case or cover off for first cool after filling or refilling. The cover traps heat.

- Keep kids away from the unit and do not allow them to enter. I provide an optional kid lock for those who have kids and request this. If you need one, you can search for a refrigerator kid lock on Amazon.

- The pump is designed to be underwater. Do not run the pump unless it is fully submerged.

- Ozone runs on a schedule. Do not use while turned on. Adjust schedule if needed.

- Add approximately 2 cups of H2O2 when water is changed. 

-Use H2O2 test strips to keep levels between 50-100 ppm for best results. 


- Drain and refill water every 1-3 months (or as needed).


**HOW TO CARE FOR THE FILTER AND PUMP:**

  1. Follow the instructions provided in the pump box and packaging.
  2. Wash the filter with soap and hot water every 1-2 weeks.
  3. Replace the filter every 6-12 months or as needed. Extra filter sponge are available for purchase through our website www.firecoldplunge.com

Clean the whole inside of the tub when changing the water.

Clean the entire pump every time you clean the filters. This pump can be cleaned by removing the top cap off the the pump using a flat head screw driver and cleaned inside with soap and hot water. See our setup page for video instructions at firecoldplunge.com/pages/setup-and-installation/


Troubleshooting before calling:


  1. If heavier grains of sand or dirt settle to the bottom, you may mix up the water so the pump may filter or use a hand pump siphon to take it out. 
  2. Error codes on my thermostat: hold all three buttons to reset and then set your temperature again. ERR means the thermostat probe wire is not fully plugged in to the thermostat.
