    I'm looking in to starting Loquid Ice Control. Who all uses liquid? How do you sell the idea to your accounts?

    Theres a place called SynTech that sells Caliber M1000, Dose any one use this? I was thinking about makeing my own brine, but how hard would this be, and how big of a batch would you have to make.

    Thanks,

    We do

    Lots of communication

    Yes

    Depends on if you have the equipment and want to spend the time. I don't, I'm in the business of applying it, not making it, just like fertilizer. Also, if you don't get the percentage just right, you are going to cause more problems than you can imagine.

    Depends on how much you are going to use.

    PS Have you tried doing a search? Much if not all of this has been covered before.

    No, we only use Caliber.
