HOMESNOW

The first snowmaker for the home.

With HOMESNOW you can start right away on making your own snow. For private use in gardens, for hotels and clubs or public facilities such as kindergartens, schools and communities. Simply connect the lance to the high-pressure cleaner, hook the high-pressure cleaner up to the water pipe, and the snowmaking can begin immediately. Another advantage of HOMESNOW: the unit can also be used as a high-pressure cleaner and do-it-yourself compressor.

Ease of handling:

  • Attach lance to the unit and connect to the water supply
    (such as a garden hose)
  • Snowmaking from 2 °C or colder at a water temperature
    of from 5 °C to 7 °C
  • In dry air (approx. 50% relative humidity) snow
    can be made as soon as the temperature drops to -1 °C
  • 230-volt connection for pump and compressor
  • 1 to 1.5 m³ snow per hour
  • High snow quality
  • Insert the stand tube of the lance either into a parasol stand or into the ground via a screw foundation (optionally available)
