Product Overview

Sometimes, we come across second quality HydroBarrels in stock, this means that they may have cosmetic marks inside or out. They have never been used and the warranty is still 5 years.

Most marks are caused during the transport process and we feel these should be offered at a reduced price. If you would like to see the barrel before ordering, just drop us an e-mail asking us to send you some photos and we'll hold the barrel for you for 24 hours. 

Discover the HydroBarrel, a premium ice bath that allows you to easily intergrate into cold water therapy. The HydroBarrel, with it's wood effect, definitely looks the part and can be used inside or out. 

The design of the HydroBarrel allows you to stay in a comfortable upright position and thanks to its lightweight design, it can be integrated into most places.

HydroBarrel Specifications

The HydroBarrel is rotomoulded from highly durable linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE), it's non-toxic, BPA-free, medical-grade material. Due to it being non-porous it will not absorb oils, toxins or other contaminants.

It’s easy to keep clean, frost, UV and impact resistant, meaning you won’t need to worry about weather damage - over the years, it will stay looking as good as the day you bought it.

These barrels are lightweight compared to wood, making it easier to move around. They have a smooth internal finish which we recommend using a antibacterial surface cleaner to keep clean. You can also use a chlorine tablet within the HydroBarrel to help keep the water cleaner for longer.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I use a water butt instead of a HydroBarrel as it's slightly cheaper? The main difference between them both is the HydroBarrel has around 20-30% more material added when manufactured, this is because the water butt is too flexible and the floor isn’t suitable for people to climb in and out of. For example: the medium 240 litre HydroBarrel weights the same as a 350L water butt. I know it’s a little more expensive, but the Hydorbarrel is designed for climbing in and out of and the warranty will cover this. 
  • What is the PTFE tape for? This can be added to the tap thread or chiller fixings to stop any drips. 
  • Can I use a chiller with my HydroBarrel? This should not be a problem, most chillers like the Myo come with fittings.
  • Does it have a seat inside? No, we recommend using something like a step stool for a seating option.
  • What's the best way to open the top outlet / inlet hole? This can be drilled out, inside the hole is an indent for the drill bit to fit. If needed, we can do this for you. Recommended drill bit size 18mm.

    Ice Barrel

    Posted by Jenny on 2nd Mar 2024

    I was not sure what to expect, but I was very happy. The barrel had a small scratch on it which took us a while to find. Very quick to set up and get going.
