Setting Up The Residential Plunge All-In

  • Updated


Read First Before Setting Up the Plunge

Please read the safety precautions before continuing.

Chiller instructions
We are very excited for you to plunge, but we ask that you leave the chiller in an upright position and unplugged for 20 minutes before you turn it on. The refrigerant may have been shaken up in transit and needs time to settle.

Important warranty information
Please note that damage caused by freezing conditions or improper water chemistry are not covered under our warranty.

Please monitor your Plunge daily when the outside temperature is below freezing to ensure constant flow. If your Plunge doesn’t have a heater and temp is below 32°F for 12 hours, you must drain the Plunge, filter and chiller.

Using an Extension Cord Outdoors

If you plan to place your Plunge outdoors and use an extension cord, you will need to use a Weatherproof Connection Box – Indoor & Outdoor Electrical Power Cord Enclosure to protect the cord. If you need more information you can reach out to our Plunge Experts by submitting a request ticket on our Help Center or calling us at (916) 914-8911.

App Troubleshooting and How-Tos


Set up

Step 1: Location requirements

  • When you place the Plunge you want to make sure there’s at least 16 inches of clearance on end with where the circular fan is. Not doing so will void the warranty. 
  • On the front side there should be at least 12 inches of space to access the drain and on the back you only need 4 inches.
  • We recommend having around 4 inches of clearance from the wall on the other end of the tub so you can lean your head back.

Step 2: Fill The Plunge

Attach the included carbon hose filter to a garden hose. Run water through it into a drain until the water turns clear. Then, fill the Plunge with water.

Step 3: Plug In the Plunge

Once the tub is full you can plug your plunge into
an outlet with a dedicated 120V 15A circuit.
Note: Ensure the Plunge has rested for at least
20 minutes for coolant to settle before plugging
it into the outlet.
Note: If you plan to use an extension cord, it
needs to be 12 gauge to give the Plunge sufficient
power up to 25ft.

Step 4: Turning the Plunge On

  • Locate the two buttons on the power cord that say “test” and “reset”. 
  • Press the “reset” button to turn it on. 
  • You should hear the jets turn on and see the screen on the back light up with the current temperature.

Press the up and down arrows on the back of the tub to set your desired temperature. The blue arrow indicates cooling, and the red arrow indicates heating.

Step 7: To Pause the Jets

For a quieter Plunge experience, you can pause the jets by pressing the pause button. It will pause in increments of 15 minutes up to an hour. Once the timer runs out, the jets will turn back on and resume circulating the water.
