I am new to using deicers and I have several customers with a serious ice\snow buidup on walkways . temp is around 25 at night and 35 during the day.what product will work best to help reduce the buildup on these areas . Ice thickness is about 1 inch and scraping\backblading has been no help... any ideas??

What has worked for me on my steps is to make a little hole in the ice to the surface, then pour coated deicer or liquid deicer in the hole. As the ice melts the deicer spreads under the ice, making it easier to break up. I also pour on the treated salt while the steps are bare (these are wooden steps). The excess then soaks into the wood, resulting in a residual effect making it easier to shove off the next snow buildup.

Does this help for your situation?
