A Few Things To Keep In Mind

1. If you're using an extension cord, it needs to be a 12 gauge heavy duty outdoor extension cord less than 25ft long.

2. The chiller must have a minimum 12" of space from the right side to the closest wall/surface. Without adequate space the chiller will not have proper air flow, causing it to not work properly, and this will void the chiller warranty.

3. Remember to clean your chiller screens every 60-90 days.

 
I Have Little Or No Water Flow
Good water flow is a 3-4 inch stream of water coming from the jets and you the water will have a slight movement to it. Good flow is essential for the water to cool properly.

My Chiller Does Not Have Power
  • Unplug your chiller from the power strip in the electrical box and plug it into a separate outlet. This can be the same outlet the Plunge is plugged into.
 
My Chiller Has Power, It Just Won't Cool
Follow the below steps in order...
  1. Check the air coming out of the back of the chiller.
    • Warm /hot air = All good
    • Cool air = Reach out to customer service
  2. Perform an Air Purge. Air could be trapped in the chiller causing it to not cool the water properly. CLICK HERE to watch our Air Purge video.
    • Let run for 2 hours to see if water starts to cool.

  3. If water is still not cooling, then plug chiller into a separate outlet. This can be the same outlet the Plunge is plugged into. Test for another 2 hours.
