Don’t build your DIY chest freezer ice bath before you see this. This is going to save you a lot of time, a lot of frustration, and a lot of energy in the long run.

In this video I’m going to go over what I wish I knew when I first started building my own DIY chest freezer ice bath.

This is becoming extremely popular now with Wim Hof leading the front on the benefits of cold therapy, and cold thermogenesis.

My hope is that through watching this video you will be able to avoid some of the mistakes I made when building my Ice Bath setup.

  1. Do you think it would make a difference if I were to get a freezer that allows for setting the temperature? I'm guessing not, since I'd be relying on the timer to get the temp right.

  2. – Thanks for advising about the temperature – I'll do what you say if there' no need for near-zero.
    – I've been doing cold showers all this year, but now have a big freezer for the bathing. And, like you, I intend to set it up to be very beautiful, convenient, etc.
    – I was inspired by one vide of a very beautiful one, but he made it black, which of course absorbs sunlight like a sponge. =) Have a look, at
    – Another YouTube video suggested that a very good sealant is fiberglass, so I'll buy that and the resin, quite cheap, about $5 per sq metre, robust, marine stuff.
    – I'll also box the freezer in for extra mechanical support of the walls, as I've heard of walls bulging. I will fill the gap with insulation too. 'Only run the thing about an hour or two per day, on a timer.
    – I might see if I can go near-zero, because I'm curious about the life effects – some physiological (resilience, tissue rejuvenation) and psychological (mental strength, clarity, exhilaration). Such a fascinating realm to be exploring. But it's good to know that most benefits still arise without such extremes.
    – I still expect I'll retain that drain rather than hassle with siphoning and pumps. I was curious about hygiene, and will be careful after seeing this good medical assessment at Only I will use this ice bath. (Few even would want to.) =)

  3. Yo! Thanks for making all these videos on cold therapy — I'm looking to get my own and finding that ALL 14.1 – 15.0 chest freezers with plastic interior (Frigidaire & Whirlpool) are sold out everywhere.. (at least within 300 mi radius of LA, where I'm based) Do you have any recommendations for alternatives with this being the case?

  4. you could set up a pid temperature controller to turn it off and on instead of using a timer. With pid temperature controller you would set the temperature you want it to turn on at and temperature you would want it to shut off at and it would keep it in that range always

  5. I'm thinking of starting with water in a bath tub, then dumping 30 lbs of ice into it.. this way, I might be able to handle the gradual temperature decrease. Although, I wonder if a frog would jump out?!

    Any thoughts on
    1) would the temperature get as low, as if using a chest freezer?
    2) how long does it take for that much ice to lower the temperature of the water to its coldest?

  6. I got the ozone, water pump, sealant, and timer and I understand that I'll be using the timer to turn on and off the actual freezer, but do you also have a separate timer for the ozone and water pump or how do you turn those on in the night automatically? Thanks

  7. I would definitely buy chest freezer with plastic interior, the corrosion issue is real PITA with the metallic interior chest freezer. Another issue is, the metallic interior is not flat, there are ridges, nothing with suction (most of water equipment that sticks to flat glass walls) can be mounted on the walls.

    At some point, without treatment, you will end up with, since most of the metallic interiors are not pure aluminium. We have tried using dechlorinated water, but it didnt do anything to prevent this corrosion issue.

    In one facebook group, someone was suggesting as protective layer. But I am not really sure how safe that is to the skin, especially if you have some skin condition like eczema or allergies. Not sure, how the coating will affect the heat exchange, i really hope the coating is a thermal conductor…
