    I found a supplier for the material I am planning on using in my sprayer. I Wanted to know if the concentrations look good or if it needs to be diluted any.
    Water 70-80%, calcium chloride 5-15%, sodium chloride 7-12%, strontium chloride 1-3%, magnesium chloride 1-2%, potassium chloride 0.5-1%, miscellaneous chloride salts ~1%
    This is already premixed as I will receive it. Any alterations I will have to do myself.
    Any thoughts appreciated.

    What is strontium chloride?

    Is it well brine?

    It's kinda low compared to what we get.

    Not sure on the strontium. It was listed on the printout of the makeup.
    Yes, it is well brine.
    I was thinking it may be ok with up to 20% of chlorides.
