    I would like to find a distributor of liquid ice melt in Mass particularly on the south shore. Only looking to purchase small quantity like 100 gallons not thousands of gallons. I'm open on types. My main use would be for multiple walkways and one high traffic intersection on a commercial lot. I had been purchasing liquid calcium chloride last year, but they are no longer in business.

    PPP If you find decent pricing on liquid ice melt please PM me because I am looking as well. What are you using for equipment?

    I'll keep you posted once I find a distributor. For the walk ways I use 2 SOLO Backpack Sprayers they cost about $150-200 (the ones with viton seals to handle chemicals) a piece for good ones that you can get replacement parts for. You can change the tips to spray about anything liquid. You got to keep them clean though.

    Thanks. Where do you purchase your liquid ice melt now? I bought some Bare Ground from the internet last year and wasn't impressed at all. I am just on the other side of the bridge in Onset. Have you tried Robert Childs down in Harwich. They may not be a distributor but may know who is locally.

    I cant help you with the south shore part, but last week when I was in Welch Welding in Chelmsford there was someone in there ordering a liquid setup, and they can get the liquid in 55 gallon drums

    Actually I spoke with Gallo Construction today. Seemed like good people. They have many types available and even offer you a 1500 gallon on site tank if you are going to use that much. Going to stop down there early next week and see them in person. They sell Ice Ban, calcium Chloride, Calcium Magnesium as well as rock salt etc.
