How would you rate your ice quality:
What is important to mentioned that in the ice maintenance process not only the snow is removed with the ice machine but also the ice also shaved 1mm per round to eliminate the scars and make it nice and transparent again.
Through ice crystal comparison it was shown that the ice made with REALice® treated water is
leading to reduced energy usage in ice rinks. With the ice crystal being bigger, the density of the ice increases.

We are very pleased with the results of the REALice system thus far. The users have reported very hard, consistent, and fast ice. The ice also looks very clear and has a nice sheen to it.
Our staff and users are completely satisfied with the switch, in fact if we hadn’t told users about it they wouldn’t even have noticed the change. On top of that, we are already seeing reductions in our gas and electricity usage.
What did you do to the ice after Christmas? Keep doing what you are doing, we love our Ice here in Castlegar.
