THE NEXT BIG STEP IN
COMPACT & AFFORDABLE RECOVERY
Two independently controllable heat pump systems in one cabinet. Right hand system
chills and the left hand can both chill and heat.
iCool TWIN is a revolutionary new concept in athlete recovery
equipment. It combines 2 complete and independently
controlled iCool Compact Cool systems in to a single cabinet.
The TWIN provides all the power and functions of 2 iCool ice
bath recovery systems plus the important extra benefit of
controlled heating. Now you can provide advanced contrast
therapy sessions at a much lower cost. The Twin can provide
any temperature used in recovery therapy into 2 pools at the
same time. One can be hot and one cold or both cold and all
temperatures are accurately and automatically maintained.
The TWIN is the perfect solution for a world class recovery
centre at an affordable price, in fact the lowest price ever
for such a capable and complete system. Coupled with our
revolutionary new IcePod pools an iCool Twin and an iCool
IcePod Duo can provide full contrast therapy for an entire team
and your world class recovery centre will even fit easily into
smaller rooms.

IMPORTANT
SAFETY NOTICE
CHECK YOUR POWER SUPPLY VOLTAGE
iCools can only be used with the voltage marked on the machine, they are not multi voltage. The voltage is marked next to the main power socket.
TO ENSURE SAFE OPERATION THE POWER OUTLET YOU USE MUST HAVE A PROPER EARTH CONNECTION.
BUILT IN SAFETY SYSTEMS
Your iCool system has many safety features to protect against such things as a loss of water flow, overheating of the system, or any chance of the
user receiving an electrical shock. If any such potentially dangerous things should occur, in most cases your iCool will shut itself down and a red
warning screen will appear to assist you to identify and correct the problem. In the case of overheating, the main fan will continue to run for some
time until the temperature is safely back to normal.
For the safety of users, any leakage of even a small amount of electrical current will cause the system to Instantly remove all electrical power. In the
unlikely event that your system shuts itself down for any of these reasons, you must identify and correct the problem that has caused the safety
systems to operate before allowing anyone to use the system.
PLEASE TEST THE EARTH LEAKAGE SAFETY DEVICE REGULARLY
The main power switch is also part of the electrical safety circuit that can prevent the possibility of electric shock. It is essential to test this safety
system each time you use the iCool to make certain it is operating correctly. This is very easy to do and takes only a few seconds. Turn on the main
switch and then press the orange test button just above the switch. If the safety system is working normally, pressing the test button will cause the
main power switch to shut off instantly. After a successful test, reset the main switch to ON to begin normal operation. If pressing the test button
fails to instantly shut off the power switch. DO NOT USE THE SYSTEM until you contact iCool or a trained service person for advice.
ADVICE
OBTAINING THE CORRECT AMOUNT FLOW OF WATER
Occasionally you may experience some difficulty getting the water to
flow correctly through your iCool due to trapped air in the system or
the hoses.
THE PUMP
Water flow through your iCool is produced by a high quality long life
circulating pump that includes an effective filter system to keep the
pool water clean. The pump with your iCool can not begin to operate
correctly unless it is fed with a head of water from a pool, therefore,
the level of water in the pool must be higher than the pump and any
air tapped in the feeding hoses must be removed. There must be no
air trapped in the supply hose from the pool to the pump and no part
of the hose from the pool to the pump can be above the level of the
water because this will trap air that can prevent water from flowing to
the pump. If you still do not have a good flow of water, with the pump
running, undo the levers on the snap hose fitting that connects the hose
from the top outlet point on the iCool. There is no need to remove the
fitting, just open the levers a little and this will allow any trapped air to
escape. As soon as you see water coming out of fitting, quickly snap it
back into position and lock it again.
YOU ONLY NEED TO BLEED AIR OUT OF THE SYSTEM ONCE
FOR EACH SET UP
Once primed of air, the system will remain primed and water will
normally flow instantly each time you start the pump until the pool is
emptied or the iCool is moved.
NEVER OPERATE THE PUMP WITHOUT WATER
Water pumps can not operate for long periods without water because
the water provides the lubrication to the bearings. To prevent damage,
your iCool system will shut down the pump automatically if water is
not flowing properly for more than 2 minutes. If this happens a warning
screen will normally appear to explain to you how to correct the problem.
VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT CHLORINE,
SALT & BROMIDE
All iCool Compact, twin and turbocool models are fitted with the latest
chemical and salt resistant Titanium Heat Exchanger tanks, however
we highly recommend that chlorine should only be used in very small
doses to prevent skin and eye irritation to pool users and to extend the
life of metal parts such as the circulating pump in your iCool. In cold
water, Chlorine is very effective in small doses of just 1.5 parts per
million, (1.5 ml per litre).
WARNING
Never use bromide or bromine based products, they are
extremely corrosive and can damage the metal parts

QUICK START GUIDE
The following is a quick start guide to get your iCool up and running quickly, however you should
read the entire manual to get the most out of your iCool.
STEP 1 & 2

STEP 3
Pool 2
Pool 1
Connect the plug from the filter pumps to the
socket on the rear panel of the iCool Twin
Check that all connections are to the correct side of the iCool Twin
If you are operating 2 pools make sure that both the hoses and the
filter pump’s power cable for each pool are connected to the same side
of the iCool Twin. Connect the LEFT side pool’s hoses and filter pump
power cable to the to the LEFT side of the iCool and the RIGHT side
pool’s hoses and filter pump power cable to the RIGHT side of the iCool,
looking from the back.
Connect Electric Power
Connect the power cable supplied with your iCool to a standard power
outlet capable of providing at least 12 amps in countries with a 220
V supply and 24 amps in countries with a 110 V supply. Although the
system requires much less power than this during normal operation,
all heat pump compressor motors need considerably more power for a
minute or so each time they starts up.
WARNING
For safety, the power outlet you use must be earthed correctly
Main Power Switch
The main power switch is also part of the ELECTRICAL SAFETY CIRCUIT that guards against the possibility of electric shock. Every electric
component in the iCool is protected by this device. It is a good idea to test this system each time you use the iCool by turning on the main switch
and then pressing the test button above the switch. If the safety system is working normally, pressing the test button will cause the main power
switch to shut down instantly.
Reset the main switch to ON to begin normal operation. If it does not shut down instantly when you touch the test button do not use the iCool
until the fault is found and corrected by a trained person.
STEP 4
Your System Software will begin loading
Your iCool TWIN has a TWO full colour high-resolution touch screens
that eliminate all switches and provide complete control over all of your
iCool’s systems in a user-friendly and intuitive manner.
It also provides a substantial amount of additional information to assist
you. When you turn on the power for the first time the system will load
the latest software from its memory and run a diagnostic self test
routine. This will take about 20 seconds. During this time you will see
this screen (shown at right) and then a BLACK screen.
The System Status Bars will flash white
The STATUS BARS on each side at the front of the iCool Twin will change
colour or flash to give a clear indication of each function. The left one is
for the left side heat pump and the right side for the right hand heat pump.
The Software Loading Screen
Owner’s manual for iCool Recovery Systems
While the software is loading the status bars will flash white, the screen
shown above will be seen, then a black screen appears for about 15
seconds while the computers test the safety systems.
After the self test is completed, your personal logo screen or a standard
WELCOME screen will appear. Touching each screen anywhere will
stop the bars flashing and show a steady white light to indicate that the
systems checks were successful and that your iCool is ready to use.
The Status bars glow BLUE when only the pump is running, GREEN
when the cooling system is running and RED when the heating system
is running.
If the bars glow RED when you try to start cooling please refer to page
7 for an explanation.
Your twin is actually 2 separate iCool machines, so they can be operated
completely independently from each other. If you only want to use one
system, just ignore the other one, it will do no harm. Just touch the
screen of the unused one to stop the status light flashing.
If you ordered a personal logo screen your WELCOME screen will
look like the samples (right). Otherwise the standard iCool welcome
screen will appear. Touch your logo or welcome screen anywhere to
continue.
The Main Operating Screen will now appear
The main operating screen provides many options which are covered
elsewhere in this manual, however to quickly start the system you
can simply accept the default water temperature setting of 15ºC or,
to select a different temperature touch the CHANGE settings button.
Then 10ºC will be inserted automatically, but you can change to any
temperature you require at this point. Simply touch the up and down
arrow buttons and the desired pool water temperature will appear on
the bottom left-hand of the screen in the blue window marked “selected
temperature”. The right-hand side of the screen shows the outside air
temperature. The temperatures is in degrees centigrade, however it can
also be displayed in Fahrenheit. This is explained later in this Manual.
Once you have selected the pool water temperature you want for each
pool, touch the start buttons on each screen. This takes you back to the
main run screen which is the screen that you will use most of the time
during normal operation.

Touch the start pump button. This will start the pump operating and
water should begin circulating.
NOTE: When you touch START buttons they change to STOP buttons
and can then be used to STOP that function if required.
It is essential that the water is flowing correctly before you touch the
start system button. The water flow is pre set to an optimum flow rate.
This allows time for the heat exchangers to operate at maximum cooling
efficiency. Pool water is completely changed approximately every 15 to
20 minutes. Do not touch the start system button until you are sure
that water is flowing smoothly. If water does not flow smoothly within
a minute or so, please check that the hose with the pump is flat on the
floor and no part of it is higher than the top of the water. Check that the
water in the pool is higher than the pump. If this does not correct the
problem the system will sound an alarm and a red warning screen will
appear with information about how to correct the water flow problem.

STEP 6
Now that you have preset your desired temperature and started the
circulating pump, notice that the pump button will have changed from
start to stop. You can use this same button to start and stop the pump at
any time. Now, touch the start system button and the cooling cycle will
begin. The water will be cooled to your pre-set temperature and the
system will then cycle to maintain it at that temperature automatically.
The system can only be started once within any 3 minute period to
avoid overloading the compressor. So if you don’t hear it start when
you touch the start system button, do not touch the again, the iCool
will start automatically after the 3 minutes safety period elapses.
For the safety of users, you can not set temperatures below 5°C or
above 45°C. (40°F-112°F) In an emergency you can stop all functions
immediately by touching the “all stop” button however, if the cabinet is
hot, only the fan may continue to run until the cabinet has cooled.
To change from cooling to heating or back you must restart.
The system on the left hand side can also heat and will automatically
enter into either the cooling or the heating mode depending on your
first temperature setting. It heats and cools by modern heat pump
technology using as much less electricity. The right hand side is for
cooling only, it does not heat.
Setting up to use the Heating Mode
For safety reasons you can only initiate the heating mode at the time
the unit is first switched on. You can not change to heating while you
are using it in the cooling mode or vice versa. You must switch off at the
main switch and start again to change modes.
WARNING
Never use this option unless you are absolutely certain that the
system has stopped because of a false water flow alarm
Once you use this function to disarm the flow safety monitor nothing
will stop the system even if water is not flowing and this can seriously
damage the pump as it will have no lubrication or cooling from the water.
This over ride function is only to be used for short periods where it is
essential to keep your system operating until the reason for the false
alarm can be determined and corrected.
Water flow can also stop if the heat exchanger tank is frozen solid
If you set the temperature below about 7ºC or 45ºF it is occasionally
possible in certain climatic conditions for the heat exchanger tank to
freeze solid which will block the flow of water.
In order to cool the pool water to these extremely low temperatures the
system must cool to at least 5 to 7ºC below the set temperature and
this takes it very close to the temperature that water freezes solid.
Following international safety standards your iCool will not accept water
temperature settings below 5ºC or 40ºF as this would put athletes
using the system unattended at risk of hypothermia. However, the iCool
is easily powerful enough to freeze the water and if this happens the
safety screen above will appear and the system will stop.
Your iCool selects either cooling or heating automatically
For example, if you set the temperature to a value that is BELOW the
current water temperature in your pool it will automatically begin
COOLING when you touch the START SYSTEM button.
If you set the temperature to a value that is ABOVE the current water
temperature in your pool it will automatically begin HEATING when you
touch the START SYSTEM button. To use the heating function use the
up down arrows to select the hot temperature you require up to 45ºC
(or 108ºF) and then touch the START button. This takes you back to
the main operating screen where you can now start the PUMP and the
SYSTEM as usual. The status bar on the front of the unit will turn RED
when you touch the START button to indicate that your iCool is now
heating. It will continue to heat until it reaches your pre set temperature
and then hold that temperature for as long as you wish.
You must use a pool cover when heating the water
We all understand heat rises, so you must use a cover on top of your
pool when heating it or you will lose a large amount of the heat energy
into the room and it will take much longer to heat the water.
The Loss of Water Flow Warning Screen
If water stops flowing for more than two minutes the iCool will sound
a warning and shut down. This screen will appear.
The Water Flow Warning Screen also provides an option to over ride the
flow protection system in the rare situation of a false alarm.

DETAILED OPERATION
DETAILS OF THE MAIN OPERATING SCREEN
The pool temperature window shows the actual water temperature
returning from the pool. This will vary slightly to the actual temperature
in the pool because for safety reasons the electronic sensor is in the
cooling unit not in the pool. It accurately reads the actual temperature
of the water that is returning to the pool. The actual pool temperature
will be slightly different depending on your particular setup. The
temperature is always accurately maintained but if you want to display
the actual pool temperature within 1 degree you can simply set an
offset amount to compensate for the difference when selecting your
required temperature.
The heat pump temperature window shows the temperature inside the
cabinet. If this exceeds 70°C or 158°F the system will shut down, an
alarm will sound and a warning screen will appear. This could happen in
extremely hot conditions or if the unit is covered by an object such as a
towel or anything that prevents proper airflow. The outside temperature
window shows the current room or outside temperature. It is not
desirable to operate this system in temperatures above 42°C or 108° F.
If the reading exceeds this you need to move the system to a cooler
area or improve the air flow. The preset temperature window always
shows your selected temperature. This is the temperature the water will
be automatically cooled (or heated) to and maintained at.
You can display the pool temperature at full-screen size
If you touch the number in the pool temperature window on the Main
Operation Screen for a few seconds the screen will change to a fullscreen display of that temperature. This is useful if you wish to monitor
the system from a distance. The pre-set temperature and the outside
temperature continued to display in smaller windows for your reference.

Changing the temperature setting
You can change your preset temperature at any time by touching the
change setting button, this will take you to the change settings screen.
From here you proceed as described previously.
Changing FROM COOLING TO HEATING The left hand side heat pump
can also heat your pool up to 42ºC for contrast therapy, however, for
safety reasons you cannot change directly from heating to cooling or
cooling to heating. To do this you must switch off the entire system at
the main switch and start again. This is required to prevent the system
from changing modes accidentally.
See setting up heating mode on page 8
Fan Speeds
During normal operation the main fan may automatically change
speeds as required to maintain the highest efficiency. The fan will
usually be at full speed when the work load is high.

To stop the system at the end of your session
There are several ways to stop the system and close it down. You can
stop the cooling system by touching the stop system button, in this
case the pump will continue to run. You can stop to pump at any time by
touching the stop pump button. Alternatively you can stop everything
by touching the all stop button. Alternatively you can simply switch off
the main power. If you use the all stop button the fan may continue to
run for a short time to cool the cabinet. Because the system will not
run without water, touching stop pump also stops the heat pump if it
is already running.
Emptying the pool using the Pumps
You can use the main circulating pumps to empty the water from the
pools by detaching the hose that runs from the pump to the iCool. The
pool water can then be directed to a drain. The pump can be turned on
and off at any time using the pump stop/start button.

FUNCTIONS OF THE TOUCH BUTTONS
SYSTEM SETTINGS
SYSTEM SETTINGS
When your iCool starts up, the first screen you
will see offers you a system settings button. THE
BEST SETTINGS ARE AUTOMATICALLY SELECTED
so there is usually no need to use this feature. The
three settings you can change are the fan speed
range, the temperature from degrees Centigrade to
Fahrenheit and the sound level from the screen.
Temperature Settings
When your iCool starts up, you are offered 3
different ways to choose a water temperature
setting. Whichever method you choose it eventually
takes you to the main run screen. If you make no
setting, the system will automatically insert 15°C.
(around 59ºF) In this case you can proceed directly
to start the pump and cooling system.
MAIN SCREEN
Cooling Fan Speed
This allows you to set the main cooling fan to either NORMAL or QUIET
MODE. Generally you should always leave it in the NORMAL mode
which is fully automatic and allows the system to control the fan speed
to give the very best efficiency and fastest cooling.
USE PREVIOUS SETTING
If you want to use your previous setting from
the last session, you can touch the use previous
setting button and the last setting you used will be
automatically inserted into the system. Previous
settings will be lost if you have removed to mains
power.
Quiet mode will greatly reduce the cooling ability of the system. If
there is a risk of overheating the safety system will turn the fan back to
high no matter what the setting. The NORMAL setting is used to give
absolute maximum cooling power and gives about 40% more cooling
than in the QUIET MODE.
If you want to make a different temperature setting,
you touch the CHANGE setting button and this will
take you to the water temperature setting screen
illustrated above right, where you can use the up
and down arrows to select the temperature you
MAKE NEW SETTINGS
require. After you make your setting touch the start
button to go to the main screen where you can start both the pump and
the cooling system and where all relevant temperature information is
clearly displayed.
Temperature Display Scale
After you start the system running you can view the actual water
temperature in full screen by touching the blue POOL TEMPERATURE
square at the bottom left of the main screen for more than 2 seconds.
Quiet Mode
This can be set to either Centigrade or Fahrenheit and this changes all
of the displays throughout the entire system. When you first start the
iCool it will normally start in Centigrade as this is the world standard.
Due to complex decimal calculations between Cº and Fº there may be
minor difference in the true Fº displays. This has no effect on actual
cooling accuracy.
The sound level adjusts the sounds made by touching the screen and
by the alarms. Normally it should be left on high to assist with settings
and to make sure alarms are heard.
A red dot indicates which setting is selected in each of the available
settings.

Temperature Limitations
Because of the dangers of hypothermia in the case of an unattended
athlete using the pool, your system will not allow you to set temperatures
below 5°C/40°F. If the model you are using is the contrast model
which also provides heating for contrast therapy you cannot set the
temperature above 45°C/112°F because of the risk of scalding. These
temperature limits have been set after wide consultation with the
sporting industry around the world. There are no demonstrated benefits
in using water temperature lower than 5°C or above 45°C and therefore
the risk of doing so is not justified. If you really do need lower or higher
temperatures for any reason, iCool can change the software on request,
but this modification is at the owner’s risk.

the screen will begin to flash as with setting the clock. Use the same
up down and left right arrows to set the number of hours and minutes
you wish to elapse before the system automatically shuts down.
The system automatically begins the countdown and will stop when
the amount of time you set reaches zero. The time remaining before
shutdown is displayed on the main clock display screen.
As the same arrows are used to set all three time functions, to avoid
confusion, a red dot appears next to be button of the function being set.
Recovery Session Timer Functions
A very popular and useful feature of your iCool is the session
countdown timer. This allows you to accurately control the immersion
times of athletes and to repeat those times as often as needed. This
is an essential part of successful cryo recovery therapy and is just as
important as maintaining accurate and consistent temperatures, which
of course your iCool does perfectly.

Time Setting Screen
Timing Functions
TIMER FUNCTIONS
Your iCool offers a number of very useful timing
functions including a real-time clock, a countdown
timer to time recovery and training sessions and a
timer to shut down the system automatically at a
predetermined time after use. To set up and use
these functions touch the timer function button
on the home screen. You can reach this screen by
using the back 1 button or the home button.
The session timer is set up from the main time setting screen by
touching the set countdown button. The numbers on the setting screen
in the bottom right-hand corner will begin to flash and you can use
the left, right and up, down arrows to change the time in minutes and
seconds. Once you have set the time you want your athletes to remain
in the bath, touching the display countdown full-screen button will take
you to the screen illustrated below. This screen allows you to see the
countdown from a distance and also to control it in various convenient
ways. The current pool temperature and the outside temperature will
also be displayed.
The count down can be set for either once only, or it can repeat
automatically as many times as you like. This is particularly convenient
if you have a number of athletes using the same pool at the same time.
The system beeps for each of the last five seconds at the end of each
countdown to warn the athletes to get ready to get either in or out of the
pool and pauses for several seconds to allow the changeover before the
countdown begins again (if it is set in the repeat mode).

LOCKING YOUR ICOOL SYSTEM
YOUR ICOOL HAS AN ELECTRIC LOCK
As you can see, iCool Systems have attractive user interfaces, this makes them easy and very intuitive to use, but the downside
is that untrained people sometimes like to play with the colourful touch-screens. As with any sophisticated piece of equipment
when people start pressing buttons at random anything can happen. We have covered this by installing a secret locking routine.
It is a good idea to keep this a secret that is known only to as few people as possible.
To lock the screen so that no further inputs can be made, touch and hold the iCool icon on the main run screen for more than 10 seconds (you can
only lock from this main screen). A picture of a lock will appear. While ever this lock is visible it is not possible to make any inputs or to change screens.
To unlock the system and returned to normal, repeat the procedure. Touch and hold the iCool icon for more than 10 seconds. The lock will disappear
and all functions will return to normal.
TROUBLESHOOTING
IF YOUR SCREEN FREEZES OR FAILS TO RESPOND
As with all computers and computer controlled devices it is possible that occasionally the system could freeze due to data or software conflicts.
Your iCool has 2 computers that monitor and communicate with each other. Occasionally a data error can cause them to stop communicating.
We have designed the system to be as fail safe as possible. In most cases if the screen freezes the main computer will still carry on running the
system and monitoring the safety features but you will not be able to change anything. You can either allow it to keep running if that is more
convenient, or you can restore the system to normal operation by switching off the main power and re starting, exactly as you would do if your
computer or smart phone freezes.
Owner’s manual for iCool Recovery Systems
13
The system will always reset to normal when you restart it.
When your screen first starts up and the welcome screen appears a small warning notice may appear in the centre of the screen for one or two
seconds referring to the inter computer communication requirements, this is normal.
Emergency Override Provisions
Certain safety features in your iCool can be overridden in the event of a partial failure.
ICool systems are very reliable and have attained an excellent reputation around the world for this. In addition we have done all that we can in the
designs to build-in ways to work around any partial failure, so that you are not prevented from using your system for an important event. There
are some circumstances in which it would be acceptable to temporarily override certain safety systems that may become too sensitive and cause
trouble until they can be properly readjusted. This allows systems to continue to operate in circumstances where otherwise it might not be possible.
Of course we do not advise the overriding of electrical safety circuits.
For example, depending on the way your system has been set up, it sometimes occurs that the water flow monitoring system may be too sensitive
and will stop the pump because it appears that water is not flowing properly. We allow this to be over ridden if it becomes troublesome. Instructions
on how to do this will appear on the screen automatically if this happens. It must be remembered of course that if you disarm this system the pump
is no longer protected from running dry without water lubrication, so it is essential that you manually monitor the water flow. Our staff can assist
you by phone or e-mail to overcome most problems on the spot.
Failure of the Touch Screen
Even if a touch-screen fails or is damaged, we can usually still get you going.
In our efforts to remain the world’s number one supplier of mobile ice bath systems, we have continued to improve reliability, but we have also
engineered ways to ensure that no matter what happens in the field, in most cases you can still use your iCool for that important event. Realistically,
even the best electronic systems occasionally have problems, especially in portable systems that have a relatively hard life and where water and
heat are involved. Fortunately, we have very few such problems, but as an added benefit we have built into all iCool’s a complete manual override
system that allows your iCool to operate effectively even if parts of the electronics fail for whatever reason.
We do not publish this over ride information in the manual because it is a little different from model to model, but in the rare event that you ever
have a failure of the electronics or the touch screen which prevents you from operating your iCool, just call or e-mail the local iCool representative
in your country, or our international number or go to our web site and we will give you instructions on how to use the manual over ride facility on
your particular model.
At www.iCoolSport.com you will find a listing of representatives around the world, or you can request a reply directly from our factory in Australia.
You will be contacted promptly and we will explain how to work around your problem until we can arrange repairs. This is an important service that
we hope you never need, but it’s good to know it is there. In addition to this service you will be pleased to know that your iCool is of a modern modular
design, which means that most components can be easily replaced in the field and often by the owner.
UNDERSTANDING THE HEATING MODE PROTECTION CIRCUIT
For safety reasons you can only initiate the heating mode at the time the unit is first switched on. You can not change to heating while you are using
it in the cooling mode. You must switch off at the main switch first.
With TWIN models the other side heat pump can cool at the same time or both sides can heat or cool at the same time.
You must use a pool cover when heating the water.
We all understand heat rises and so you must use a cover on top of your pool when heating or you will lose a large amount of the heat energy into
the room and it will take much longer to heat the water.
If the status bar lights turn red when you start a cooling cycle.
It means you have inadvertently selected a temperature that is higher than the current pool water temperature. Switch off at the main power switch
to reset the computers and start again, this time set a temperature that is LOWER than the current pool temperature.
