Rocky Ridge Royal Oak Community Association (RRROCA)

As a second-generation outdoor rink flooder, I remember the days of helping my father shovelling snow by hand, thawing out fire hoses and then folding them up nicely when we were done. It took some time and some of those nights were cold! Having the ability to create beautiful ice with minimum manpower was something that I thought could not be done.Every outdoor rink rat in Calgary knows that ice making in this city is about as much as an art as it is a science.

Well the RinkWater System has given our teams in Rocky Ridge and Royal Oak that advantage needed in creating beautiful ice on an outdoor rink. We are fortunate enough now to have machines to clear snow but the real magic and beauty is the RinkWater System. The teams are able to flood the rink in under 10 minutes. When conditions and temperatures are right, the teams consistently were able to flood our rink up to 3 times a night. No frozen hoses, no cumbersome folding techniques, excellent water pressure and a great secure box that is heated which looks nice and stores the equipment in an efficient way.

With all that, comes excellent engineering of the box and customer service from the people at RinkWater. The team at RinkWater have been very responsive with any questions we had with the system and are always checking in with our community about how their product is working. This is an excellent product which I believe is now the gold standard in outdoor rink flooding with a great team at RinkWater that stands behind their product.
