    Newbie here... There is a lot of talk about what is better to use in a particular situation between rock salt, calcium pellets, magnesium, and/or liquids.

    For those storms that have temperatures that start cold and then get warm... or start warm and then get cold... does anyone blend rock salt with calcium and/or magnesium pellets???... and if so what ratio would you suggest???

    ~10-15% calcium.
