Attention Rink Builders, You Will Find This of Interest
Almost all rink sites have a section or an area where one end or one side is lower than another. It is thought that fully 95% of backyards have a slope of more than 1%. This mere 1% of a grade results in a drop of 6″ over 50′. Using a wood frame in this scenario is your best way to a successful rink. You may even find opposite corners that are different. You, the builder need to determine where your extra Rink Stake 5 in 1 placement will be for best deep water support. Find your slope by using a Transit, a laser line level, or a string line level. Here is the easy calculation once you have determined your slope.
Keep in mind the following are general guides for your Rink Stake 5 in 1.
15″-18″ of water requires Rink Stake 5 in 1 and Support 45 every 2′.
12″-15″ of water requires Rink Stake 5 in 1 and Support 45 every 3′.
8″-11″ of water requires Rink Stake 5 in 1 and Support 45 every 4′-6′.
5″-7″ of water requires Rink Stake 5 in 1 every 6′-8′ (no Support 45 needed)
