the world's premiere online community for backyard ice rinks
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
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!!
