The amount of water is regulated by the control unit. An indicator indicates when the water level is sufficient. It is not necessary to put water every day, but it is recommended to add at least one cup of distilled water every week. When you first receive the control unit, you will need to fill each bucket (water tank) with approximately 16 ounces of distilled water or filtered water.
Each box comes with a water indicator light so you know if you've added enough and lets you know when you need to add more at any time. We strongly recommend using distilled water. Standard tap water can be used, but this makes the silicone tubing more prone to sediment accumulation. Once you have all the supplies you need, place your chilipad pad on top of your mattress and continue to make the bed as you normally would.
Then connect the tubes of the pad to the control units, plug the control units into an electrical outlet and fill them with water. I suggest pouring the water into each unit slowly, but each unit is going to take about 24 ounces. The Cube sleep system consists of a control unit (the cube) and a soft mattress topper (called Chilipad) that features microtubes made of medical grade silicone. According to information from ChiliSleep, the Chilipad performs best with a net weight of 250 pounds (90 kg).
That's why the Chilipad comes in a “WE” option for couples, and a “ME” model for those who sleep alone. A positive side of the Chilipad is that it automatically shuts off when the water is not enough or has been reduced too much, so you don't have to worry that the Chilipad will break down because it ran out of water. If you use a prepaid meter, the Chilipad has a 10-hour automatic timer that allows it to turn off automatically if you ever forget it. You can also try the Chilipad for more than 90 days and if you don't like it, you can return it and request a refund.
Also considering the fact that sleeping with a Chilipad can reduce air conditioning usage, further reducing energy bills. The company also offers financing options that make it easy to purchase its Chilipad sleep system. And best of all, it works with the old and reliable ChiliPad control unit, which means you don't have to worry about getting used to a new device. If you think the setup might be difficult, this will help you understand how to get started with the Chilipad.
If I were you, I would set the temperature of your Chilipad half an hour before you went to bed so that it would be ready when you settle in. Chilipad was invented by a couple, Todd and Tara, who came together to find a way to sleep together in the same bed, without feeling uncomfortable.
