    I just switched over to using only Magic Salt. Hands down it is the best ice melt I have ever used. It saves me time, makes me more money, and keeps my clients very happy. Thank you to the Snow Guys!! anyone else ever use this stuff?

    I get it from John R. Elicone (The Snow Guys) in Waltham. I pay about $134.00 a ton, but WELL WORTH IT!

    It actually loses me money by working so well that I cannot charge for another application .

    I love it, I only use it at my house though because its $12/bag. No ones going to pay 2-3x that for me to use it. Wish I could use it everywhere though.

    I use magic salt on my commercial accounts that have pavement. I usually have pavement showing before the village streets. Plus this morning it was 12 degrees. For people who want bare pavement what are you going to use? Rock salt only works above 15 degrees. The only problem I have is I just found out that what I have been using this year is not magic salt, its treated salt that has the same chemical make up I was told. It works good, but not as good as magic.
