    quick question. Most everything is plowed around here. No salting. City and State started using liquid De-icer, They say it's Magnesium Chloride. What is the advantage over salt or salt brim. Thanks

    It will work to colder temps then sodium chloride products. Although many states have bailed on it, after they created skating rinks, causing major pile ups, from improper application.

    Liquids are not like throwing down salt, they have to be properly mixed, and properly applied, within the window they work best at. theres a learning curve for sure.

    T-Man, I have been searching for over 2 months for information on using LCC alone. I see you have been a member since"01, and I would like to know your thoughts. Can you use LCC without salt, or am I best advised to by a spreader also. I am new, and unfortunately there is no one to sub from in my area, to learn the business. They know that you are going to be a competitor next year. I have heard that with just LCC, you can create a skating rink, at certain temps. What is your opinion. Thanks Bill
