Introducing The Water Chiller! The ultimate solution for your ice bath routine, that doesn't break the bank like most other chillers on the market.

It's time to save time and hassle, with this chiller you will not have to run to the store for ice ever again. The Pod Water Chiller is for indoor & outdoor use, and extremely energy efficient at just 280watt (500watt PRO version available for faster cooling and hotter climates).
At only 40lbs (18kg), our chiller is incredibly lightweight compared to others on the market, and therefore easy to move around and affordable to ship. But don't let its size fool you - with a powerful 1/3 horsepower (240 watt) compressor, it's just as efficient and effective as those expensive $5000+ ice baths you see on the market.
