    Has anyone ever had luck using pump to pump water below ice onto top of ice to help melt it?

    Pretty standard technique in Ark, West Tenn, W Ky, Miss and Mo to open flat agriculture fields, but the key is having a deep pocket for fuel and a big enough pump to move a LOT of water. On a small body like an acre it still takes a lot of water and thus a good sized pump. Electricity is cheaper than gas if you can arrange it.
