    Liquid Storage Tanks and Pump House set up and ready for the season. Magic -0 is in the tanks. Tanks are 3000 gal each.

    Nice looking set up. Pre treat salt or liquid pre treating lots?

    Actually both, for personal use and resale. We have used Treated salt (Magic Salt for over 10 Years and plan to Magic-0 Liquid on lots for the first time this year.

    Going to a straight liquid service and no salt? What sprayer are you going to use?

    Nice setup and storage.

    Do you think you could get away with only using the liquid products and not having to deal with any Salt? What will just pre-treating do for you? Would you have to re-apply after plowing to Melt? We are usually working with 4-6" storms in MD.

    As you know, there are many variables when it comes to pre-treating. The temperature of the pavement, the relative humidity, the intensity of the storm, the timing of the storm, and type of storm. When temperature and humidity are right, I plan to just pre-treat and then not have to do any post treat, or use a small amount of Magic Salt. It will definitely reduce our salt usage and the amount of chlorides that are released into the environment.
