Slush Rental

Frequently Asked Questions

How many drinks does one double bowl machine produce?

There are 2 bowls and each contains roughly 400 ounces. There are 80 – 10 ounce drinks between both bowls.

How is the product mixed prior to being added to the bowls?

Great Lakes Beverage Distributors provides mixing jugs to pre-mix the product before adding to the bowls. The concentrate comes in ½ gallon bottles that are diluted 5:1 with water. If alcohol is added you simply substitute equal amounts of water for alcohol.

Does Great Lakes Beverage Distributors supply alcohol?

No. Alcohol must be customer provided.

How much alcohol is needed for each bowl?

You can add up to 2 fifths per bottle of concentrate.

How long does the machine take to make slush?

The first time mixed will take close to 1 hour. The machine always runs and is turned down to night mode after you’re finished. The following morning after the slush button is turned on you have slush in roughly 30 minutes.

Can I use an extension cord?

Preferably - no. The machine can be plugged into a standard outlet but does have a significant draw on the electrical system. It will pull 14 amps and needs a 15 amp breaker. Extension cords should be avoided if possible.

Great Lakes Beverage Distributors will provide a heavy duty extension cord if necessary.

Can the machine be placed outside?

Yes. It should be placed in the shade if possible and out of weather, i.e. rain. Humidity and high temperatures may slightly extend the freezing time.

Can I move the machine to another location?

No. The machine must remain in the same location it was set-up. The machine also must not be tilted or lifted.

How much will delivery cost?

Delivery is free if the location is within 10 miles of Caledonia, Michigan (zip code 49316). Otherwise $2.00 per mile over 10 miles.

For instance, delivery to a location 25 miles away will cost $30.00.

Cancellation policy?

Cancellation fee of $50 may be charged if rental canceled less than 5 days from event.
