Rink de-aerator rebate

Adding a mechanical rink de-aerator to a hot water system used for indoor ice rink resurfacing helps remove micro air bubbles and increase heat transfer. This allows for lower water temperatures, which saves energy and creates a harder, smoother ice surface requiring less maintenance.
