    I have noticed many posts from other companies in my general area; Staten Island, NY. We are right by central NJ. Can anyone recommend some suppliers for salt and/or calcium chloride? New Jersey is paricularly convienent for me as I live in Morris County, not far from Union County.

    Currently, I am using 50 lb. bags of salt and 50 lb. bags of calcium. Can't find anything larger; other than bulk which I am not equipped to handle at this point. I'm paying around $5.00 per bag for salt and $12.00 for calcium.

    Also, the salt I have been purchasing is too crushed to come out of the spreader easily. Constantly shaking it to get it going.

    Call Tim Mahoney 718-816-7000. He owns salt mines and has a family port on the North Shore of Staten Island on Richmond Terrace.

    Thanks for the response. I've spoken with Tim. Actually, he is right around the corner from my yard. He has treated salt. I've tried it but it is somewhat crushed and does not come out of the spreader well. Will be stopping to see what other products he can get. Thanks again.
