Use this guide to learn how to keep a cold plunge tub clean and sanitized so you can soak up the therapeutic benefits for years to come.

Cold Plunge Tub Water Care

Arctic Plunge tubs are bacteria-resistant and use an ozone filtration system to sanitize the water with fewer chemicals. So keeping your cold plunge tub water crystal clear is as simple as draining and refilling it! 

Experts recommend changing your water out every 2-4 weeks or so, although you might have to change it more frequently depending on how often you use your tub.

Cold Plunge Tub Filter Care

A cold plunge tub filtration system works diligently behind the scenes to keep the water crystal clear and sanitary. Over time, the contaminants it filters out will begin to accumulate. Regularly cleaning and replacing your filter will ensure your tub remains in perfect working order and your water is also clean and hygienic.

Regularly cleaning your cold plunge tub will protect it against possible bacteria buildup that can cause mold. To keep your water crystal clear and sanitary, it’s recommended that you clean your cold plunge tub every time you drain and refill it. 

How to Clean a Cold Plunge Tub

The best way to clean your plunge tub is with a mild cleaner or hydrogen peroxide, and a soft-bristled brush. You can use these to gently scrub the inside and outside of the tub, being mindful of dirt, dust, and other contaminants. After you’ve scrubbed it down, make sure to rinse out the tub thoroughly and dry it with a cloth or towel.

Keep Your Cold Plunge Tub Covered

Covering your cold plunge tub when it’s not in use will keep the water clean for longer periods of time. This is especially important if your tub is located outside, where it’s more susceptible to contaminants like dirt, leaves, and other debris.

Even if your plunge tub is inside, a protective cover will keep the water cleaner for longer and prolong the amount of time between needing to deep clean it.

Keep Your Space Clean

Whether your cold plunge tub is installed indoors or outdoors, you’ll want to avoid tracking in dirt and debris. You can do this by keeping the area surrounding your tub clear of grass, twigs, and other potential contaminants.

It’s also a good idea to keep a mat or a rug near the tub’s entrance, which helps trap dirt particles and prevents them from being carried into the tub by unsuspecting feet.

Shower Before Taking a Cold Plunge

As we go about our daily activities, our bodies naturally accumulate dirt, sweat, and oils on our skin. Showering before you take an ice bath is a good habit to implement, as this will help reduce the amount of work your filter has to do to neutralize things like sweat or body oils.

Showering also helps remove any residual products from the skin, such as lotions, perfumes, or deodorants. These will cause grime to build up in your filtration system, increasing the need to replace your filter more often.
