We show you how to handle unlevel sites and so much more! Our survey response returned an average backyard rink water depth of 12″
Don’t be fooled by how flat your rink site grass surface may look. A 1% grade will get deep over 50′ (you wont notice a 1% grade) and before you know it you have a 6″ drop or more, from end to end. In order to have at least 3″ of ice in the shallow end you would then need 9″ of water in your deep end. That means you will NEED extra support to hold the water pressure from inside your rink frame. Below is a very valuable chart.
- 15″ – 18″ of water requires a Rink Stake 5 in 1 and a 22″ Support 45 every 2′
- 12″ – 15″ of water requires a Rink Stake 5 in 1 and a 17″ Support 45 every 3′
- 8″ – 11″ of water requires a Rink Stake 5 in 1 and a 17″ Support 45 every 4′-6′
- 5″ – 7″ of water requires a Rink Stake 5 in 1 every 6′-8′ (no Support 45 needed)
- Up to 4″ of water requires a Rink Stake 5 in 1 every 10′-12′ (no Support 45 needed
