What is the Malibu Ice Bath's lowest water temperature?
Water temperatures can run between 36°- 60°F.
The same drop of water doesn't touch you twice without recirculating. It feels like a winter stream. Your body temperature has zero effect on the water.
Why is it called an ice bath?
As of right now, ice bath means cold water immersion with or without ice that is less than 40°F. It is the popular term used to indicate extreme cold immersion experience.
There are many terms currently used to describe cold immersion therapy:
Ice bath, cold plunge, cold tub, cold spa take your pick.
Cold immersion therapy = less than 60°F
BlueCube's temperature can modulate within this range to meet your needs.
What does the repair and maintenance support look like?
We designed our BlueCube ice baths to be reliable with simple maintenance:
Highest quality industry standard parts
Easy filter replacement
No expensive mechanics
For daily personal use , replace filters once per month.
For commercial use, ~100 daily plunges, replace filters 2-3 times per week.
We also recommend replacing the water at least once per month.
At higher uses, once per week, twice per week.
To make filters last longer, shower / rinse prior to entering the ice bath.
Most of the need to replace filters, drain water, comes from body oils and hair.
What is the maintenance schedule?
Your BlueCube Ice Bath is a living, breathing unit.

Like all woods, your ice bath requires love. All that is required of you:
Every 6 months, rub down deck and exterior of the ice bath in tung oil.

Can I place the BlueCube Ice bath outside? Does it come with a cover?
Your BlueCube Ice Bath can live inside or outside.
If outdoors, IT MUST BE IN THE SHADE!
Direct sunlight damages all products, all surfaces and materials.
If you place your ice bath in the shade and adhere to the maintenance schedule, then your warranty will be honored.

We will provide a cover similar to car covers; this is placed when not in use.
What is the return policy?
We offer a 30-day money back guarantee return policy. There is a 10% restocking fee plus the cost of return shipping.
How often should I use the ice water bath?
2-3 times per week, 11 minutes total immersion below 60°F is the starting point of benefits.
The goal is to make this a daily habit. Keep in mind, everyone has different tolerances to cold immersion. Our recommendation is to build tolerance over time. Start at a temperature slightly beyond your comfort zone. Take your journey slowly.
You will experience compounded benefits over time, in addition to your other health routines.
How does the filtration system work?
Your BlueCube Ice Bath is constantly filtering the water through a 20-micron filter, the type often used to purify drinking water, and O3 (ozone) technology. O3 is a powerful and natural disinfectant and oxidizer. Together, the filter and O3 system keep your BlueCube water fresh and clean, without using chemicals.
Can I change the water easily?
Your BlueCube comes raised and with a bottom drain.
You can drain the entire ice bath in 15 minutes. Bottom drain attaches to a garden hose for easy out.
Just refill it (~15 min depending on water pressure) and give it time to reach the desired temperature setting, and you're good to go!
