Well water or softened water for resurfacing?

I am building my first rink this winter, 40x80. I live on a well so I plan on having the initial supply of water delivered. I have 2 different water options for resurfacing throughout the season. 1) cold well water, or 2) cold or hot water that has first passed through a water softening system. With...

Re: Well water or softened water for resurfacing?

One reason is so I don't drain my well, and, I was told that well water makes a brittle ice that flakes, although I haven't confirmed it through a reliable source.

Re: Should I flood over existing snow?

Thanks! I think I'm going to remove the snow to avoid a slush issue. My next concern is filling. Will using a hose melt a hole in the ice (15 inches deep)? What i f I move the hose every 20-30 minutes?

Re: Should I flood over existing snow?

A friend of mine just suggested setting up a sprinkler outside 1 corner of the rink, setting the coverage area at 90 degrees and just letting it run. This would obviously avoid the "hole" issue as well as the extensive labor involved with hours of garbage can dumps.

Grinding down ridges

I have some 1/2-1" high ridge and am looking for advice for a power tool to grind them down flat and even with the rest of the ice. I was thinking of using a belt sander or angle grinder??? Any suggestions would be helpful!
