    Hi all,
    Just joined this morning. Great forum but I thought I would brake protocol and ask questions first. I'm a one man SR operation in Columbus Ohio. I get a lot of work when it does snow. I have several small accounts and sub out to the local Walmart distribution center. I'm wanting to go LCC spray this winter and have designed and built my own equipment with a truck mounted spray bar and wand for doing walks.

    Question is, What is the most cost effective LCC mix or buy bulk? I have 4 275 gallon IBC containers. One is for the truck and the other 3 will be used for bulk storage and or mixing. Any one have a good source for bulk LCC solution or flake around Columbus? Thinking a 34% should do fine. Also ahs anyone had any luck with calcium chloride / sodium chloride solution?
    Thanks all.

    Hay Mike,
    Think I may have talked to you yesterday. Talked with Pinnacle Property Maintenance in Columbus and it doesn’t sound like they are going to order from you this year. They quoted me a price of $.80 a gallon. Where is your next closest distributor to Columbus? How far are you from Columbus? I would consider loading up a flat bed with totes and driving if it's going to save me that much money.

    Going to be working out of 1 truck with a 275 tote so a place that I can pull up and fill would be great. Also have 3 more totes that I can fill that I will leave at home. You got some LCC for sale?

    sorry timlutz Pinnacle is going with another company that has a very low calcium brine content!! ( i know they will switch back to us very soon after the get there first shipment and find that it's crap) so stay tuned. We will be looking for another Distr. in that area to get set up. So if you know anyone put them in touch with us.

    Thanks
    Mike

    Another source you could look at is Royalty Enterprises. They are right down the road from you in Newark, OH and deliver their product anywhere in Ohio for 50 cents a gallon Their phone number is 740-323-3333
