    I am from CT and would like to know if anyone has a source for Liquid Calcium or any other liquid chemical, we have tried Magic O and Caliber but at over $3.59 per gallon we would like to try something a little bit more affordable. We have looked on line, at the concrete plants,ect, no one knows what we want, so maybe some one can point us in the right direction.

    shoot MIKE S. a PM he knows a guy that's sellin.

    even if you had to have it shipped from MI or OH no bigger than the tote's are i bet MICK could get it shipped for you for around $100

    heck i got a plow from BASHER in Pennsyvania shipped to me in West Central MO for a little over $300

    if the concrete plant's don't use calcium........what do they use to cure concretein the winter?.

    try some tractor dealership's or tire shop's, Calcium is used in tractor tires for weight :nod:

    just remember that 32% calcium is what you want...no more no less......and it weighs 11.3# per gallon. so weigh some in a milk jug
