The quality of the ice has been tremendous.
The ice is harder. Players skate faster, pass better and shoot better. It contributes to a better quality hockey game. All visiting coaches and players agree that it is one of the best surfaces in the country to play on. We are in operation 12 months a year and the savings are definitely significant.
The fruit's in the pudding - we're more efficient and not heating the water for the resurfacing.
Everyone is happy with the ice.
I think we have a winner!
The ice feels solid. It's got foundation.
So far ice has been great. It freezes instantly and the quality looks a lot better (much clearer than the untreated water)
"The Zamboni is spreading 120-140°F hot water onto the ice. This causes an instant 30 ton load for a 10-minute duration. The use of REALice eliminates such."
"The clarity is way better than advertised! I am VERY happy with the ice."
"We are thrilled with the ice."
