*** Please note that from now on we have two models of the CSE, a big and a small one! Here is a link to the bigger version ***
CSE is a fantastic tap water cooling system to assist in the most efficient cold shower exposure and this model has been developed for more restricted spaces. Although it's load would not allow the ice-cold shower to last as long as with the 'Big Brother', for most people the compromise is actually an excellent thing. Well, you can always re-load (or ask someone to reload the ice) after 6-7 minutes but usually that wouldn't be necessary :-)
This smaller model is actually more difficult to make as it is much trickier to fit almost the same hardware inside a smaller container (and apart from the coil part, all other components remain the same).
As with the bigger model, it requires only an additional shower hose of desired length and a few standard rubber washers... and, of course, about one bucket of ice cubes (ideally some ice cubes mixed with home-made crushed ice, as shown in our YouTube channel video; and about half or more of the ice you can re-freeze after your shower and re-use the following day)...
The starting temperature is between 0-1C, rising to a few degrees during an up to 4-7 minutes cold shower. It's bigger version has been thoroughly tested for a few years and works very well, practically maintenance free. This model is no different, just it's load lasts about half the time of the bigger sibling.
As part of our R&D, there there has been a small addition to the new CSE model, which has raised the price only slightly. It is called a Gas Diffuser Module (GDM) and although it could be considered optional, we include it as standard (mainly for future-proofing purposes) and it would be up to an individual to use it or not, especially in the beginning. The purpose of the module is to allow for mixing the water with ice so that the temperature of the shower water is very stable at 1-3C for the duration of at least 4-7 minutes.
Each order is usually very specific and individually tailored to requirements so please read the attached Q&A sheet carefully (the sheet is shared between both available models so please discount the info in terms of performance to the smaller brother). If you have any further questions, drop us an email at the contact details below. Please note that the colours of the CSE might (and will) vary!
