Thanks for the numbers , I had startd to do this, now I don"t have to.
Have been looking & talking about Iceban. getting closer to changing over from salt. It's almost a challange to get some of my accts. to let me salt. Just this AM we got a new acct. because we offered them a liquid de-icer, rather than salt.
The wife wants me to use it around here too, says she's tired of me killing her plants along the drive.
Just maybe we will have a chance to test it out this next week
We have good results with magnesium and calcium. The past two seasons we have used calcium choride pellets for all walkways.
We only use pellets, I don't think the flakes are effective.
And while it may look good on paper for coverage sq ft. think realistically. Our guys take a scoop or a lesco 80lb spreader and go to town. We continually apply at our 24/7 commercial sites, until its bare ground, so whatever is cheap and effective is good for us and our clients.
I think the calcium cost us around $9/50lbs this year and $3.60/50lbs rock salt.
