    This is our first year using liquids and after talking and doing research we are going to use The Calcium Guy they know what they are talking about and if anyone is like me I do not want to do all this work and spend all this money and buy some cheap crap that will make me hate liquids, just think if the product from The Calcium Guy does not work you can post your stories on this site for everyone to know!

    4700dan Thanks for going with us and i had beat you to the punch!! lol check out the post i have on here asking people to tell us about what they think about the different types of brine http://www.plowsite.com/showthread.php?t=86068 Now with that being said our brine is not the best ice melter out there the best would be 100% calcium but thats stuff is very expensive. Pound for Pound,Penny for Penny This stuff works and will save you money over and over again. Now you will not be able to replace rock salt with brine. There is just some circumstances it will not work in. But with some time spent ahead of a sprayer and some experance putting it down you will feel the same way.

    Since we are quite busy this time of the year, did not get a chance to answer:

    TYPICAL ANALYSIS:

    The product is fully saturated.

    Total dissolved solids (TDS)= 35.9%
    Calcium Chloride= 16.6%
    Sodium Chloride= 10.7%
    Other TDS ( Magnesium Chloride, etc.)…8.6% by difference

    Here is ours SnowMelt

    Calcium Chloride 21-24%
    Mag. Chloride 3-5%
    Pot. Chloride 2-3%
    Sod. Chloride 5-7%

    TDS range from 31% to 39%

    Funny how you do not have a range in where your product can vary. Correct me if i am wrong, But isent this material a by product from an oil well?
