    Where do you guys buy your salt or ice melt? I seen where some of you salt for $120 per ton.....it seems like cheapest salt I can find is $120 a ton. I have never salted just curious how you guys do it. DO you buy bags by the skid? How much salt does it take to cover a 1 acre parking lot?

    Man I'd hate to pay that per ton. I can go to the port of baltimore and get bulk salt for $38 per ton. but to the question I get approx 600 to 900 lbs per approx acre.
