    I was quoted $0.59 per gallon for 32% liquid cal. I was also quoted $0.38 for natural well brine, I have attached a MSDS report for that product.

    Whats your thoughts on them? I don't know anything about the well brine. I'm looking for something to pre wet salt and use as a pre treat on lots.

    Thanks

    how much are you looking at getting? where is it from? 0.38 for well brine seems pretty reasonable for the Chicago area.
    I make mine less - even if I have to use solar salt from home depot...

    do these prices include delivery?

    is it just straight liquid calcium? are you planning on mixing it with the brine or applying it straight? I was quoted 0.52 a gallon last year but I needed to get a whole truck - 5000 Gallons... otherwise it was closer to $1.00 for les than a 1000 gallons at a time.

    The natural mineral well brine is:

    Calcium chloride 18.4%
    Magnesium chloride 3.95%
    Potassium Chloride 1.54%
    Sodium chloride 4.29%
