    I would do a poll but don't know how so I will do it this way. What kind of deicing product are you guys using? I used to run just plain ol solar salt but now I am using a couple different products. One is a corn based product that is supposed to work as well as mag or cal. It works pretty well. I also am just using a salt cal mixture. It is cheaper than the other and works just as good. It will be interesting to see who uses what.

    It has a base of gluten but other than that I am not real sure. If you smell it it smells real sweet and kind of like alcohol. The stuff works good and is really blue so it is really easy to see when spreading.

    finding that industrial blue not working well at single digit temps....pedrow works much better and you need less product for better results......IMHO...BWAI
