Keep your Backyard Rink looking its best throughout the season. Our Ice Groomer will help make the ice a smooth surface for skating. We also have a bunch of tips for keeping your rink looking its best year after year. Keep your ice rink super smooth with our Ice Groomer. It has a portable, easy to handle steel pipe frame with a powder coat finish that becomes a conduit for water from your garden hose. Water is distributed smoothly on contact with your rink surface through the resurfacing mat. Thin controlled applications of water result in a super smooth surface on your rink in minutes like a real Zamboni ®. Looking for other ways to keep your hockey rink looking its best, without spending a lot of time and money? As an alternative to an Ice Groomer, spray or flood a very thin layer of water using your hose. For bumpy areas, we suggest softening it up with hot water and then smoothing it out with a flat piece of metal like a trowel. Cracks can be filled with warm water and smoothed over. After it snows, do NOT use a shovel or anything similar to brush the snow off your rink. Instead use something softer, such as a broom. Doing this, you are saving yourself time because a shovel can gouge the ice, creating holes and cracks. At the beginning of the winter season it is the best time to install your rink. Make sure that you fill the liner once it is in place to prevent accidental damage from high winds or animals. Walking on the liner with the wrong shoes or over sharp objects left underneath can cause damage.
Do NOT Over-Flood your rink. Too much water can cause the water to freeze in slivers. To avoid this, apply thin applications of water, making sure that each flood of water has frozen in between. When it comes to using hot or cold water to fill your rink, keep this in mind. Hot water makes for a stronger, smoother ice surface. Cold water builds up the ice depth. We recommend hot water floods prior to skating.
