Hello was wondering I'm using 2 x 8 x12 boards and am making a 20 x 24 rink .
How high would you fill the rink? Also would be using a truck load to fill it be more wise then to fill by water hose? Hope to fill this Saturday.
First time building a rink with a liner and boards so any info would be great!!

Thanks

Nice weather stretch there for a rink fill.

I am dropping my liner tomorrow and starting the flood.  Hoping to have the kids skating by the end of the weekend........

40x60 for me this year.

You need 4 inches of ice on the hight spot. so as you fill watch where the water run too.

I just use the hose cost about $300 for the season I've a 25 X50 and 8X16 (two rinks) 4-8 inches of water

Oh one trick fill some ziplock bags with water to hold the liner down till you get your water in.

leave a air pocket and they will float for easy removal
