My next investment is a well, that should pay itself back in about 3 years or less also... haha

With all that free power just run your AC drip lines into your cistern and maybe get a few dehumidifiers to go with it. My larger mini-split drips onto a low pitched section of the roof and then runs into the gutter. There's always a steady stream of water out there during the day when it's running.

Think I could get around 350gal a day out of that? (that's the minimum I water the horses with).

My neighbor has an 80 GPH well, I'm hoping for something like that wink

350gal/day, that's about a quart/minute. Or half gallon/minute 12 hours a day on sun. Seems doable with enough AC and dehumidifier capacity.

So... I should open up an indoor ice rink?

There may be something to that.... I mean if Mapp can build a "sports arena" in F'sted (I noticed they put some plastic on the ground... ooo ahhhh!)......

As long as you don't loose too much ice due to evaporation.big grin That would defeat the purpose.

So are you planning on opening an ice rink in USVI after all? My husband and I were throwing around the idea of relocating and he has played hockey his entire life and would love to coach again!

If there is no ice rinks, are there any roller hockey rinks?
