Make Your Backyard Ice Rink Freeze All the Way Through in a Warmer Climate

How long does it take an ice rink to melt?

Ad

My ice rink can stand about 3 or 4 days of above 0 degrees C and stay frozen. After that all bets are off. Of course how warm it gets really matters. The best defense against warm spells is building up as much ice thickness wise as possible while its cold. Snow can help insulate your rink but too much snow causes a huge problem, the weight will cause water from beneath the ice (if its not frozen solid) to flow up and make a slush under the snow. It does however protect your ice from melting on warm days. But after it can be a mess and about 5 floods before your rink is smooth again.

This is all very dependent on the temperature and the thickness of the ice. If you have a consistent temperature above freezing, then even a thick ice rink can melt in 3-4 days.
