Excess condensation showing on the glass of the boards. Every time the ice gets flooded with extremely hot water, more humidity is added to a rink.
The humidity in a rink is always changing. The outside weather conditions, the number of spectators and players, open doors, gates and garage doors are all contributors to humidity, as are longer seasons with the ice staying in all year round. Of course, using extremely hot floodwater, used many times every day to resurface the ice, doesn't help.
Operators are striving towards optimal humidity levels of 50-55% - some even without a de-humidifier.
Switching to REALice's cold water flooding technology has tremendous impact on the amount of humidity that is released into the building and onto the ice. It truly helps in the efforts to control humidity levels.
The REALice system acts like hot water, but without adding the extra humidity -- or the hot water expense!
Top 10 IMPACTS when humidity is out of control:
