    I have a customer with a steep driveway that wants to have the driveway pre-treated in the event that sleet/ice is forecast. I have applied granular ice melt in the past and that seems to work ok, however I am looking for other options. What works, what doesn't work?

    Rip up driveway and put heating coils in it.

    Would it be possible to install an automatic spray system that will allow them to pretreat and even spray during events using a liquid de-icer?

    Parts are not expensive to build this and maybe your answer.
