uses a potable water tie-in delivering fresh, safe drinking water to build a beautiful outdoor play place. Bringing water up from below frost levels, the water goes through a backflow preventer, pressure regulation and then out to an easy to handle hose that places water anywhere you want. When it's time to shut down the flow of water, a simple valve turns off the water to the hose and another dry hydrant is closed, draining the remaining water out of the system and into the landscape for dispersion.
The delivery hose is either folded manually and placed back in the cabinet, or placed on the power reel for rewinding, prepping the RWS for its next flood of the rink.
Other than a simple mechanical water source, there are other things that make this unit unique and that give you a serious advantage over typical water sources:
The RWS box is customizable and our team is excited about the future of this innovative concept.
- Canadian designed, constructed and assembled
- Attract and retain rink rat volunteers with less hose-dragging, flood time and physical exertion
- Eliminates need for trucks to deliver water for rink making purposes
- Eliminates truck, driver, heated bay and other expensive capital purchases
- Eliminates need for local fire departments to get involved in ice making, tying up expensive and potentially life-saving equipment
- Eliminates coordination between town/city parks departments and local volunteers for rink access
- Allows volunteers and parks teams to have a more flexible schedule when making ice
- Reduce in-out time in Community Centre
- Conforms to plumbing codes
- RWS can also accommodate irrigations controls, lighting controls and other park related controls and features
