Important Safety Precautions

/!\ Read and follow all warnings and instructions to reduce the risk of serious injury or death! Keep these warnings and instructions for future reference.

Use Precautions

/!\ DANGER Keep children away from the Evolve Chiller at all times..

/!\ Always keep fingers and hands away from moving or electrical parts to prevent the risk of electrocution or serious injury.

/!\ DANGER Hypothermia risk. Immersion in cold water can induce hypothermia which may be deadly. Immediately stop use and call 911 if you experience signs of hypothermia such as, but not limited to, violent shivering, sluggishness, speech problems, reduced motor skills, rigid muscles, blue skin, or erratic heartbeat. Please read additional information about hypothermia below.

/!\ DANGER Never use alcohol or drugs before or during use of the Plunge. The use of alcohol or drugs can greatly increase the risk of fatal hypothermia, unconsciousness, or drowning.

/!\ WARNING Always check the temperature of the water with an accurate thermometer before use. The tolerance of water temperature regulating devices may vary as much as +/-2°C (5°F).

/!\ WARNING Consult a physician before using the Plunge if you are pregnant or may be pregnant, suffer from obesity, or have a medical history of heart disease, low or high blood pressure, circulatory system problems, or diabetes.

/!\ WARNING Consult a physician before using the Plunge if you are taking medication that may induce drowsiness, or affect heart rate, blood pressure, or circulation.

Electrical Safety

/!\ DANGER: Risk of electric shock. Install at least 1.5 meters (5 feet), from all electrical outlets and appliances.

/!\ DANGER: Risk of Electric Shock. Do not permit any electrical appliance, such as a light, radio, television, etc. within 1.5 meters (5 feet) of a Evolve Chiller.

/!\ DANGER: The power cord must be disconnected if and when the cover is removed.  The rear access panel should only be removed for troubleshooting purposes by a qualified technician.  Power should only be restored once the cover is installed.

/!\ WARNING: Only plug your Evolve Chiller into a dedicated 120V 15A 2 wire plus ground service outlet.  The term “dedicated” means that the electrical circuit for the Plunge is not being used for any other electrical items.  The electrical supply for this product must include a suitable 15A circuit breaker. The plug must be readily accessible and visible to the Plunge occupant but installed at least 1.5 meters (5 feet), from the Plunge water. 

/!\ WARNING This product is provided with a ground-fault circuit interrupter located on the plug end of the 120 volt power cord. The GFCI must be tested before each use.

To test, push the test button on the GFCI. The product should not operate. Now push the reset button on the GFCI. The product should now operate normally. When the product fails to operate in this manner, there is a ground current flowing indicating the possibility of an electric shock. Disconnect the power until the fault has been identified and corrected.

/!\ WARNING Evolve Chiller must be wired in accordance with all applicable local electrical codes. All electrical work should be done by an experienced, licensed electrician and approved by a local building/ electrical inspection authority. We recommend the use of appropriate electrical conduit, fittings and wire for all circuits.

/!\ WARNING: Removing or bypassing any Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter breaker will result in an unsafe Plunge and will void the Evolve Chiller's warranty.

/!\ WARNING Unless you are qualified and knowledgeable to work with the electrical products and its components, do not service this product yourself. Opening or removing the cover may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. If you are not experienced with home power, wiring, electrical components and troubleshooting; contact a qualified service technician. If the power supply cord is damaged, or there are signs of other potentially hazardous damage to the unit, turn off the circuit breaker from the wall and refer servicing to qualified personnel.

 

Installation and Maintenance Precautions

/!\ Flooring: Before placing your Evolve Chiller, confirm that your flooring is waterproof/resistant to reduce risk of damage. 

/!\ Do not turn on power to the Evolve Chiller until the Plunge is filled to the required level. Running the pump without water could cause immediate damage and void your warranty!

/!\ CAUTION: Maintain water chemistry in accordance with the instructions in this manual. Improper water chemistry can cause skin irritation or damage the Evolve Chiller.

Important Hypothermia Information

Prolonged immersion in cold water may induce hypothermia. While it is important to keep our bodies properly warm, it is equally important for us to be able to cool down. But in certain environmental conditions our bodies cool down too much.

Our temperatures drop too far when they dip into hypothermic internal temperatures of 95 degrees and lower. There are four main ways that our bodies give off heat and cool themselves: conduction, convection, radiation and evaporation.

Each of these processes helps us sustain healthy internal temperatures. They also give us a better understanding of how hypothermia happens. When someone’s warming reactions, like shivering, aren’t enough to overcome the cooling process, hypothermia can set in. Look for several important signs indicating the different stages of hypothermia. Mild hypothermia: shivering, goose bumps, difficulty with complex motor skills moderate hypothermia: violent shivering, sluggish, speech problems, difficulty with fine motor skills severe hypothermia: rigid muscles, dazed, shivering has stopped, blue skin, erratic heartbeat, unconscious.
