Refrigerator ice

6 posts in this topic

Why is the ice from our ice maker always cloudy? Unlike North Star Ice etc. that is mostly clear. The water is filtered and not salted ( h2o softner) is ther a fix for this? HTB

when they freeze their ice they vibrate the water which allows any air bubbles to escape when freezing. If you can, try freezing them really slowly. It should work best as most of our freezers are set right aroudn 0 and the water freezes to fast before the air can escape.

Fill your ice trays with hot water and they will freeze clear.

They will also freeze faster with hot water.

All things being equal, cold water freezes faster. A curious phenomenon known as the Mpemba effect can, under some very specific (and little understood) circumstances, result in hot water freezing faster than cold water. Unfortunately making ice cubes isn't one of those circumstances.

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
