    this year I'm looking to mix my own sand and salt due the fact the places around here really skimp on the salt.. does any one know of any names of places where i can get straight salt. The sand is not hard to find but if anyones knows of a any places with really good deals this year that would be great too. we can pick it up, so the places don't have to offer delivery but it would be nice.. thanks in advance..

    i called around this morning and the best i found was int salt in new haven... 59 per ton picked up 8 per ton min, 25 a ton min delivered.. what I'm planning to do is use butler const in portland CT 38 per ton sand salt mix 1 to 4.. i will prob get a tri axle load del and keep it on hand but get the trucks loaded their, because we have accounts in that town.. the best price i got for sand today was 15 per ton i was like WTF just two months ago i was doing a septic system and approved septic sand cost me only 12 per ton... in a week or two i when i have more time i might do some more shopping around but this is the way I'm leaning toward now..

    Fair Weather Acres on Cromwell Ave in Rocky Hill is where i have gotten it in the past. I didnt go there last year because i dropped my biggest sanding job. I saw they had a pile out back so im assuming you can still get it from them, I havnt had a chance to swing by and find out.

    Well now he's changing his tune he said he miss quoted me :nono:

    Now he's telling me that sand is 20 per ton and salt is 70.
    I hate games.

    I think he was just trying to get me to plow his drive for cheap.

    That sounds more realistic
