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.

      there is a mess being created out there ladies and gentleman. Be careful. Slush is sneaky. It looks like March out on the ice, not January. Deep slush and standing water, tricky conditions for vehicles and people. Saw a lot of flooded houses today in four mile bay.    Fishing for our group was the same as it's been all season. So Slow It Hurts.   But it sure was fun to be able to fish outside.    On a side note, I picked up nearly a dozen boards left behind from wheelhouses. With all this water and slushy conditions, I agree boards are needed. Just please take them with you or chisel them out. These things can cause a lot of damage to some expensive equipment come open water....

      I feel like every time I ice fish in the rain the fish are going nuts...Went out today on a lake in the Duluth area and just pounded the crappies and gills(100+fish)..All the gills were 8-9" and the crappies were 10-12"... Best bait was a glow majum jig with a glow plastic...
