How is the Ice Barrel made?
High Quality Construction – It took several years of research and development to achieve our production process. We manufacture the Ice Barrel in the U.S. using the most advanced rotomolding technologies. Rotomolding allows us to rapidly produce a consistent and high quality product that our customers love!
What is the Ice Barrel made from?
Recycled Materials – Not all plastic is created equal! We use high quality recycled materials composed primarily of LLDPE (low linear density polyethylene), a lightweight and durable non-toxic plastic. This is the same type of plastic used in food and medical grade applications. Lastly, polyethylene can be recycled whenever the useful life of your ice barrel is finished.
What differentiates the Ice Barrel from a stock tank, bath tub, or chest freezer?
Our team of industrial designers has spent years identifying and solving many challenges associated with other cold therapy solutions on the market.
Ideally suited for people under 6’6” and 250lbs (300lt/80gl).
Very little maintenance is required. We recommend changing the water every four (4) weeks or as preferred. Water cleanliness can be extended by using a water stabilizer or treatments such as hydrogen peroxide, chlorine, or UV purifier. Cleaning the barrel is simple with a natural soap or detergent of your choice, as needed.
How do I get the water cold and keep it cold?
The barrel water temperature greatly depends on your regional climate. For example, customers in Texas, Arizona, and Florida typically need more ice in the summer, spring, and fall months. Customers in Canada and northern states will likely require less ice in summer months.
During the winter, many customers don’t need to add ice. During the spring and fall months, your ice requirements will vary by regional temperatures. During the summer, each cold plunge typically needs 40-100 lbs of ice to achieve a desired temperature range of 40-55 degrees fahrenheit. The barrel lid and cover help maintain the temperature for 2-3 days after adding ice.
How do I get in the Ice Barrel?
It’s recommended to use a step stool or step ladder (use at your own risk). We recommend always having another person present while you are in the barrel.
