Pond Hockey

4 posts in this topic

With temperatures dipping down there are quite a few frozen ponds near me (Morris County).  A problem I've encountered over years of playing is resurfacing.  I was wondering if anyone had any insight on a good way to resurface the ice after a full day of skating on it.  

I'm looking into "drill pumps."  Does anyone have experience with these?  Will a portable drill pump enough water to resurface a medium sized ice area?

 

Thanks!

I don't have any experience with drill pumps but to get a good resurfacing you would also need some way to shave the surface off as well, which is then replaced with new water.  I'm guessing the pond you play on isn't big enough to just move over and play next to the used ice?

It is when there isn't snow on it.  But when it snows usually 2 smaller rinks are cut out.

snow shovels and a hose. 

 

It never works :evil:

 

Results with buckets of water are even more tragic - and yet it was tried every year by some eejit (usually a Rangers fan :giggle: )


Hey our local pond (where I grew up) IS online  hahah!
