    Just picked up another 8-ton Salter and it already came with the tanks and set up for the brine spray. Anyone know of any brine vendors in the western NY area? Any opinions on how well the product works?

    Have you ever thought about making your own brine? Remember liquids are 70-77% water, why pay trucking on water?

    Basicly filter water through salt. A small and simple brine maker can be made using a 5 gallon pail. Place the end of a garden hose at the bottom of the pail, fill the pail with salt. Turn the garden hose on slightly. The liquid that will flow over the top of the pail will be 23% salt brine. Make sure not to add the water too quickly. I made a bigger one using a 45 gallon plastic drum with a filter attached on the side close to the top. Hope this helps. Good luck.
