Building our Homemade Zamboni
Building a zamboni or "homeboni" is very simple. We used 1 inch PVC pipe. Glued it together in the shape you see in the picture.
We then drilled holes on the lower front and also installed hooks on the bottom to keep it up off the ice.
We then bought a kit from Fleet Farm for installing grommets on an old towel. To hang the towel on the PVC we installed some hooks.
Make sure that you have a way to hook it to a garden hose. We used a quick disconnect.
Once you hook a hose to it, you just need to adjust the water to the right amount. The right amount is very hard to know. We put one hole in the top T so we could easily see the water flow. After a few trials we know how much to adjust based on the top hole. On our homeboni we adjust until the water lands on the outside PVC and no farther.
