    Would this be an ok mix? 20% salt and 80% potasium cloride will this be a good mix and how hard will it be on concrete?

    sure it would work but potasium is pretty expencive to be applying in bulk

    Like karl klein said. If it was just walks and small areas fine, but if large areas very expensive.. But if you customers are willing to pay for it and you charge accordingly why not.

    It costs $320 per skid which is 2000lbs. Do I have to worry about the 20% salt hurting concrete or anything else?
