Best Practices

In short:
Avoid trickle-filling ice resurfacer – minimum static pressure 45 psi.
Ensure blade is sharp and changed regularly.
Shave ice with each flood. Build early-morning dry-shave into routine.
Drive slowly to clean ice: NHL: 8-10 minutes, Olympic: 10-12 minutes.
Reset brine temperature from 2-5°F higher with gradual 1°F increments.
If indoor temperature in arena falls below freeezing, use REALice-treated tempered water.
Use REALice hand-held for building ice, spot-maintenance and repairs.
REALice-treated water never needs to be dumped: it will last for the next flood – even overnight.
REALice water and normal water cannot be mixed: Don’t bypass the system.
