    Considering going all bulk salt in the future. Curious to know your experiences. How/Where do you store your bulk? There are advantages/disadvantages to going this route for me, but think it makes good sense but want to get my ducks in a row for next year before I make the decision. Thanks in advance for your input.

    One plant here:

    2x2x4' = $25

    2x2x5' = $28

    For what it's worth, these are leftovers. If I remember correctly, another local RM plant was even cheaper a few years ago when I asked.




    PS, these block should really cure for a full year before being used ot house salt! :D

    Try 2400 #'s for a 2x2x4'

    Also, understand that it's cost effective for a RM plant to pour these blocks than to run the excess crete thru a Jadair, etc...........
