    That seems like a good price. I'm paying 1.00 a gal, similar coverage. Whats the freeze point?

    Lcc sq ft coverage

    Lots of conflicting info on LCC coverage. A lot of us are new to anti-icing and de-icing. The only number I have heard is LCC covers only 35 sf per gallon, earlier on this thread it was said to be 1500 sf for anti and 750 for de-icing. I bought 2 totes of LCC and It is time for me to start pricing this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Bill

    Yeah Bill, I ran into conflicting opinions too. I simply spoke with my supplier, who recommended two app rates. A fairly light one at 30 GPA, mainly to keep a wet/slightly icy lot from freezing over. Then all the way to 50 GPA for pre and post treatments. I think it all relies on the mix. Hope that helps.

    Was that from a local company or did you have it shipped in from another city/state. Also was that a pick up price or dropped off? I forgot to add mine($15) was delivered.
