How do I clean and care for my ChiliPad System?

Recommendations for keeping your Kryo, Inc. system running efficiently for years of great sleep:

Cleaning Tips for Control Unit

  • Periodically remove and clean dust screen at the intake vent under the handle for the CP-100 model.
  • Use can of compressed air (or similar) to blow through the vents (under the handle on the CP-100 Model) removing dust and debris.

Using Our chiliPAD Cleaning Solution:

  • One time per month, add one packet of the chiliPAD cleaning solution to your Cube/control unit. It's easy + quick:
    • Empty your cube/control unit
    • Fill it with clean, distilled water
    • Pour in the chiliPAD cleaning solution
    • Connect your cube to pad and run it on "HI" for 1 hour
    • Drain the water mixture from the cube/control unit
    • Refill with distilled water + run like normal
  • You can purchase packets of the solution at

How Do I Wash/Clean My Pad?

  • The mattress pads are machine washable on a front-load 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; this will help to ensure not causing any integrity issues to the male connector in the washing process. After securing the tail, just put your washing machine a gentle cycle (cold water only, we recommend adding a little bit of OxyClean)
  • Dry on a delicate cycle or air dry (again, no heat).
  • We recommend that you wash your pad with the same frequency as your Control Unit.

Operational Tips

  • Ensure there is ample space around the Control Unit for ventilation. The Control Unit utilizes fresh air as a coolant, so sufficient ventilation is necessary for optimal performance and lifespan of your ChiliPad system. Clearance of 24 inches on all sides is recommended.
  • Frequently inspect the connection tubes to ensure there are no kinks or restrictions that may prevent free flow of the water through your system.
