Looking for Liquid Urea for clearing Helipad

    I am wondering if anyone knows where I can get liquid Urea for use on a Helipad. The customer demands that we find a liquid form of the Urea so the helipad can be snow/ice free. I am able to find dry, granule Urea everywhere but not the liquid type. Could anyone provide me with a website address or Phone number of a company that has the liquid stuff?

    If there are none, how could I mix the dry granule Urea and make it an effective liquid.

    Thanks for your help!!!

    Find a local John Deere Landscape around you - one that supplies fertilizers and such. They will set you up with the liquid urea concentrate.

    Just a stupid question here, but is it possible to buy the bagged, and melt it in water, like making a brine solution? I know you'd have to play with the mix, but I think it could be done.

    I use to sell 46-0-0 to lawn care guys to spray as fert. just slowly dump in 2-3 50# bags of urea into a 200 gal. spray tank with by-pass agitation and you're ready to spray. you will have to play with the amount of 46-0-0 to get what you want for de-ing. that stuff doesn't melt at very low temps though.
