    Curious if someone can give me feedback on this? They claim to melt down to +5 degrees. How is the consistency? Any savings over standard rock salt? How is the melting stamina through a storm, any different than standard rock salt?
    Thanks

    It is standard rock salt.

    So nothing special about it being "treated"?

    Got a link to the product you are asking about and where it says it is treated? 5* is just standard rock.

    www.diamondpeaksalt.com but I don't see anything about being blended except it does say it has an anti caking agent. Salesman called me today and was talking it up as an alternative to calcium chloride in some cases. I thought I'd see if anyone in here had used it but it appears that he's just blowing smoke.

    just plain old rock salt. an alternative to CC? Hes blowing some major smoke. Anti-caking just means it shouldnt clump up on you. Plain old rock salt melts to 5*. If your looking for a blended product, look at snowslicer from central salt.
