Whether you are new to cold therapy or a seasoned pro, you are likely doing it for the benefits that exposure to cold offers rather than the physical workout you’ll get from lugging all the ice needed to keep up with it. Let’s face it – keeping up with the amount of ice needed to keep an ice bath cold can get to be quite the burden.  Our chiller will keep your ice bath cold effortlessly, this should lead to more consistent and frequent usage. Make the most out of your ice bath by turning it into an iceless bath!

The chiller can reach into the low 40°F, even down into high 30°F with the right conditions.  Ambient temps and sun exposure account for the majority of the heat load on a cold therapy tub (your body heat is insignificant compared to the sun).  Reducing the external heat load will improve chiller performance.  Low to mid 40°F should be possible on this setup even in full sun / less than ideal conditions.

 

Cost to Run (lower than most expect):

At $0.12/KWh the monthly cost of operation should be around $15-$25/month.  The compressor and fan only turn on when cooling is needed, once the water reaches your set point they turn off and only the low wattage pump continues to run.

A common question we get revolves around setting the chiller up on a timer. Ideally, you’ll want to keep the water cold at all times. There are a few reasons for this –

  1. Cold water keeps bacteria (slimy walls) largely under control by slowing or stopping their growth.  This significantly reduces the amount of maintenance needed to keep your water clean for longer periods of time.   This means less frequent water changes and that much lower levels of sanitizer being an effective doses (chlorine/hydrogen peroxide/etc).
  2. If you are using it on a regular basis the amount of potential power savings will be fairly insignificant, the heat it would gain in the “off” period still needs to be removed when you turn it back on. So, if running is normally cost $18-$28/month you might be able to save $1-$3/month. However, you will have to change water and the filter more often, so it is unlikely to be a net cost savings.
  3. When you cut power to the chiller you also cut power to the pump.  Pumps get the most wear and tear during startup, that’s when a pump is most likely to fail as well. Cycling the power to the chiller is just adding unnecessary wear and tear to the pump.

Penguin Chillers

We. Know. Cold

Simple Design, Low Temps

The penguin chiller tubs are a simple design that do the trick if you are looking to get into cold therapy. The chillers come with a  3-4 HP chiller and built-in pump. The chiller can get your water down to 40°F and if in the right conditions as low as high 30s. Even if it is hotter or directly in the sun you should expect to stay in the low to mid 40s. It also has a 5 micron filter connected to help keep your water clean.

Cost Effective

When looking at cost you can expect at $0.12/KWh that you will spend about $15-$25 a month. Once the water reaches your desired temperature the compressor and fan turn off. If you are using the cold plunge on a regular basis it is worth just keeping it on instead of turning it off every time you're done and turning it on for your next use. This will only save you $1 to $3 a month due to the chiller having to work harder to get the water back cold. Also, by turning the chiller off after every use you’ll have to change the water and filter more. Turing it on and off all the time causes more wear and tear and can lead to a shorter life for the pump.

Portable & Durable

The tubs are fairly light which allows you to be able to move it. Also everything is rain proof but if temperatures are freezing or below it is important to disconnect the chiller and completely drain it to prevent damage.
