ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONSThe Solo System® has been designed for easy assembly. It can be set up and ready to use in minutes and easily disassembled and stowed away when not in use.
The Solo System® should be set up and used on the floor. You may desire to locate a floor location that affords a degree of privacy. If you prefer to use on an elevated surface, only use a surface that can support the weight of yourself and the weight of the Solo System® (76.9lbs./34.9Kg) such as a massage table or bed.
01 Open the box and remove all of the contents. Identify each component of the Solo®.
Read each and every page of this Manual. It is especially important that the 02 Health & Safety Statements be read and fully understood. The Solo System® performs the same whether used in your home or in a professional medical facility.
Please check with your personal physician if you don’t understand something in the precaution statements.
03 Flip over domes, and attach five side rails (3 to lower dome, 2 to upper dome)using the bolts included and Phillips head screwdriver.
04 Verify that an electrical outlet of proper voltage (varies by country) is available at the location to be used. Position the Solopad® (if purchased).
05 Place a large Bamboo Carbon towel over the entire length of the Solopad® or directly on the floor. Smooth out the towel making sure that wrinkles are removed.
06 Place the pillow into position at the top of the Solopad®.
07 Place the two Solo® domes at the bottom of the Solopad®, positioned so that the open ends face the top.
09 Connect the cord labeled “Lower Dome” on the control box to the lower dome power socket.
10 Plug the Solo® into the electrical outlet (check for proper voltage and grounding).
Turn on and set the Solo® Control Box to its lowest setting. This can be adjusted 11 when you are ready to use the Solo®. NOTE: each dome has a separate adjustment. Domes adjust in whole number increments.
12 Verify that the red LED’s on the front panel are lit. The numbers will flash until the sauna has reached the desired temperature.
13 Place the Control Box in such a position as to be easily reached when using the Solo®.
14 Use the supplied Bamboo Carbon Curtain to enclose the Solo® and retain heat.
15 Setup is complete. You are now ready to enjoy the Solo System®.
INSTRUCTIONSThe Solo® is a professional piece of equipment that is designed to be a personal sauna.
Read and fully understand the Disclaimers and Health & Safety information within this manual. If, for any reason, you feel nausea, dizziness, or other discomforts or do not feel in control while using the Solo®, immediately turn it off at the control box.
Keep control box within reach when using the Solo®. Do not use near water. Always use a grounded electrical receptacle.
Infrared waves are most effective when they can contact bare skin. Considering this, it is best to get undressed before using the Solo System®.
USAGE Sunlighten™ recommends working up to a 40 minute session once a day. If a longer session is desired please contact your physician.
Set the temperature setting on the Control Box. For your first session the Solo® should not be set at a temperature setting higher than five (5). Warm-up time will be from five to ten minutes, depending on temperature Setting.
Time may be set for up to 12 hours at 1 hours intervals. It can also be set for up to 60 minutes at 5 minute intervals at the highest setting Temperature range is from 45-65 degrees Celsius (113-149 degrees Fahrenheit) and may be set at 3 levels: High, Medium, and Low.
It is now time to enter the Solo®. Slide the Upper Dome back so that it is resting on top of the Lower Dome. Sit on the towel covering the Solopad® and gently pull the Upper Dome back and over your body by gripping the frontal trim as you lie down.
Touching the Solo® heating surface will feel HOT to the touch but will NOT BURN the skin.
Position your head on the pillow so that you are comfortable. The pillow should be positioned outside of the Solo® domes. Close the drop curtain to retain the heat within the Solo®. It is now time to relax and enjoy the soothing heat of the Solo®. Do not have your head inside the Solo® for prolonged periods. Remove immediately if feeling faint or dizzy.
When the session is over, the timer will beep and the Solo® will automatically shut off.
Push back the upper dome and exit the Solo®.
The Solo System® will cause you to sweat profusely. Taking a shower after each session will remove the perspiration from your skin and add to the cleansing feeling that is felt when using the Solo®. Towel drying with a fresh clean towel will be just as effective if no showering facilities are available.
At the end of each session, remove the towel from inside the Solo®. Fully extend the domes and let them cool down. Collapse the two domes only after they are completely cool.
After use, the Solopad® and pillow should be wiped down using Sunlighten Natural Sauna Cleaner. Use a clean towel to dry all surfaces.
Fresh towels should always be used when you are enjoying your sessions in the Solo®.

How long can I use it for each day?
We suggest using up to 40 minutes per day. It makes no difference whether you use during the day or at night.
What micron does the heater put out?
The sauna puts out a micron range of 4 - 20 microns.
What is the best temperature to use my sauna?
We recommend starting at a lower temperature of 100º F and increasing temperature gradually in later sessions, if you still feel comfortable. Everyone has different preferences and tolerances for heat. The most important thing is to listen to your body.
What is the heater made of?
The heater is made of organic black carbon that is first cut into pliable sheets.
Then electrical heater wiring is added.
How much will the sauna cost me to run a month?
The sauna runs on the same wattage as a blow dryer and will cost very little to run monthly.
Can I use the sauna everyday?
Yes. We suggest drinking increased amounts of water to keep yourself hydrated. As long as you feel fine, use the sauna daily and enjoy.
If I do use it everyday, what else do I have to do?
Just drink plenty of fluids to replace the ones you will be loosing with everyday usage.
If you like, take a warm shower to help accelerate the sweat glands opening to be even more refreshed afterward.
Are the EMF levels safe?
Yes. Solocarbon® panels are 100% quality controlled by Sunlighten™ to ensure the safety & effectiveness of each individual heater. Our proprietary heater design virtually eliminates EMF (an average of less than 3mg) and steel conduit electrical shielding making your sauna as safe as possible.
11 How long does it take for my sauna to warm up?
Set the temperature controls to 60 minutes and 150° F. Allow the sauna to warm up for 15 - 20 minutes at which time it should be approximately 100° F. If placed outside, the sauna may require additional time to warm up, depending upon weather conditions. If you prefer the sauna hotter, let it warm up longer. Drink plenty of water, at least 8 oz.

12 HEALTH & SAFETY Our infrared saunas operate with the same efficacy in your home as in a medical facility. Like all professional equipment, you may put yourself at risk if you do not fully understand how to use the sauna. Infrared sauna use as creating a cure for or treating any disease is neither implied nor should be inferred. Drinking an electrolyte-replacing water or a sports drink is strongly recommended before and after use.
- Never sleep inside the sauna while it is on
- Do not use harsh cleaning agents on the interior of the sauna
- Do not stack or store objects on top of or inside the sauna
- Do not use during an electrical storm, as there is a remote risk of shock
- Altering or tampering with any electrical connections on the power supply is dangerous and will void the warranty
- Do not attempt a repair without consulting Sunlighten first. Unauthorized repair attempts will void the warranty Precautions
If any of the below apply to you, consult your physician prior to sauna use:
-Medications - Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician since some medications may induce drowsiness, while others may affect heart rate, blood pressure and circulation.
