    Found this on craigslist if anyone is interested. I am not the original poster on CL. googled the phone # and it doesnt come back to anything listed from what i can tell and the way they word the salt reimbursement seems sketchy but to each their own.

    wrong. that means they will pay up to half of the salt. not pay up to 150% of what you have into it
