the world's premiere online community for backyard ice rinks
I have a 28 by 75 rink, and this is my first year doing it so am learning a lot. The first month was great and we had awesome ice, using hot water at night to refinish the surface. We had a warm spell, and after shifting of ice/water, I have a leak under the ice line creating an issue.
Our rink is 14 inches of ice on one side and three on the other, so ground is not level. When I add water at night, it is leaking out from the bottom of corner of the deep side, as it goes around the ice in between the liner and ice. I can't get the water level high enough to make level ice anymore, and can't patch the liner.
Any ideas on how to "dam" up that corner so that the water will rise high enough to freeze and get the rink level again?
Thanks in advance, Jeff.
