    When im not out plowing I work for a Water Park Resort and I was helping out the Engineers Salt the side walks. If I put to much Calicum Cloride on concrete that is 3 years old will it hurt it??? or will it risk breaking and cracking??? We bought Excel 50 Calcium Chloride 94-97% Pellets. Melting Power -25 degrees... Can I have some feed back on this please??? :confused:

    3 year old concrete shouldn't be a problem...the freeze thaw cycle does more damage than calcium will

    Shouldn't be an issue.....more than likely the concrete has calcium chloride in it as part of the mix when it was poured.

    Possibly but not "more than likely" not to mention that is a completely different.

    lol....

    usually but around here a lot of the bigger companies (Prairie, Ozinga, Meyer, Thelen, etc) use it in batches regardless of temps. They want it set quicker and get the finishers in and out.

    I think I hijacked the thread.....sorry.....back to topic.
