    I'm looking for a little input. Putting a bid together for a 7 acre property that is entirely concrete.
    The spec is to apply calcium chloride to the entire lot. What is the best product to use? I cant see using 50lb bags. And what application rate. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

    you might be suprised a little calcium goes a long way, but it all depends on the conditions. I am guessing that the winning bidder will be using liquid cal.

    See if you can store it onsite and fill up there. Storage tanks are cheap and bulk will save a lot of time and money.

    Great application for the 325 gal unit.
