    If you spread pellets you will end up with liquid.

    Please keep in mind that freight costs are always a large part of the deicers final cost. A 30% Calcium Solution means you are paying not only for 70% water, but also the freight on 70% water. Buying solid pellets allows you to use them as is, or mix with water yourself (although flake is used more for turning into a liquid solution). If you would like pricing or a chart to help with making your own please email me and I can help you out. BTW there is one of the only Calcium Bagging Plants nationwide in NJ.
