Frequently Asked Questions
How long should each ice bath session be
To get the health benefits, you'll need to stay in cold water below 59° Fahrenheit (15°C) for three to eight minutes.Cold water therapy works best with the right combination of time and temperature. Each individual is different and some people can tolerate lower temperatures.
What temperature do you recommend
We recommend starting out with your ice bath tub temperature at around 59° Fahrenheit (15°C) if it's your first time, and then slowly lowering the temperature and duration for each session. That way your body will get acclimated to the cold.
How much ice do i need to add?
We recommend adding 13-26 lb (6-12kg) of ice to the Ice Pod per session. The amount of ice needed depends on your tap water temperature and how cold you desire it to be, where if you live in colder climates, adding ice may not even be needed.
Since the pod is insulated it will keep the water cold for multiple days, and you may therefore not have to add as much ice after the first time.
How do i drain the Ice Pod
The Ice Pod comes with a tap at the bottom for draining. To drain it, connect a standard garden hose or simply open the tap depending on where the pod is set up.
How often should I clean/empty The Ice Pod
To keep the water clean for long periods of time, we recommend using one 1 lb to 2 lb of sea salt (500g to 1kg). (You can keep the water in the pod for three to four weeks when you are using salt).
If you are not using any salt, we recommend cleaning the pod in every three to five ice bath sessions.
Can TheIcePod be set up outside?
Yes! We engineered the pod to be weather and UV resistant, so you can set it up Inside or outside, even in temperatures below freezing. The insulation layer makes the water turn to ice a lot slower, but we still recommend to stir the water at least once a day to keep the water from freezing completely solid.
Does it include a cover
Yes. The Ice Pod includes a waterproof cover to keep the water clean.
