A recent episode of the new HGTV series called Esther Extraordinaire featured the installation of a new basement hockey rink by Synthetic Ice Solutions of Mississauga Ontario. For those unfamiliar with HGTV, they are the home to many types of do-it-yourself shows, home makeover shows and anything to do with the home and garden. Esther Extraordinaire is one of their newest ones and they chose Synthetic Ice Solutions to provide the materials for their basement hockey rink installation.
In the episode they show just how easy it is to install, although it would’ve gone even smoother if they actually measured it correctly! Not to worry, they were able to easily fix their mistake. You can watch the episode here;
A basement hockey rink is a great idea for anyone that wants to keep their kids active and healthy. It will provide countless hours of fun and entertainment and is a fantastic alternative to playing video games. Child obesity is a growing issue, reports show that about 1/3 of children are overweight or obese (read more on the Statistics Canada website here). Providing them with an easy and fun way to get regular exercise is a great way to fight it.
Synthetic Ice Solutions is a Canadian company with more than 30 years in the plastics industry that provides top quality synthetic ice rinks at extremely competitive prices. They are simple to assemble and will provide for up to 20 years of service, and the best part is that it does not require any electricity or water.
