How do I clean and care for my Chili Control Unit?
Recommendations for keeping your Chili Technology system running efficiently for years of great sleep:
- Periodically add one cap full of hydrogen peroxide into the reservoir to keep the circulation system clean. Procedure: Set temperature to 75 degree F. Remove the reservoir cap, and add the Hydrogen Peroxide. LEAVE THE RESERVOIR CAP OFF. The Hydrogen Peroxide will react with the dirt or other foreign particles to clean the system. Once the reaction has stopped (bubbles no longer form), replace the cap, reset the temperature to your desired sleep temperature and enjoy.
- Periodically remove and clean dust screen at the intake vent under the handle (for PLS Control Units ONLY)
- For all units you can use a can of compressed air to blow in around side vents. (For the PLS control you can blow the top vent as well)
- IMPORTANT: If you have added any other substance to your water reservoir previously (such as vinegar), please flush the system before adding hydrogen peroxide.
How Do I Wash/Clean My Pad?
- The mattress pads are machine washable on a frontload washing machine. Please secure the extension tail with a rubber band or other means to minimize the risk of it flailing in the spin cycle and causing damage to the male connector. After securing the tail put your washing machine on a gentle cycle and cold water only. Dry on a delicate no heat cycle or air dry.
- Insure there is ample space around the Control Unit/Cube for ventilation. The Control Unit/Cube utilizes fresh air to cool the electronics, so sufficient air is necessary for optimal performance and long life of your system. Clearance of 24 inches on all sides is recommended. *** Do Not put your control unit under your bed*** as this will significantly restrict the airflow to the unit.
- Frequently inspect the connection tubes to insure there are no kinks or restrictions that may prevent free flow of the water through your system.
