    I should have worded it a little different in my other post of Mixing Liquid De-Icer. I am looking for the best way to MAKE liquid De-icer. So I will try this again. Sorry for the mistake.

    I am trying to make a small batch of liquid De-icer to you to test it out. The chart that I found I am not sure if they are on the dot or a little off on calculations.

    CaCl2 2.8 lbs per gal of H2O= 33%
    MgCl2 1.8 Lbs per gal of H20= 21.6%
    Nacl2 2.5 lbs per gal of H20 = 30%

    I was looking to use MgCl2 to try out a batch. I was going to bump up the 1.8lbs to 2lbs per gallon of water to make an even amount of 25 gallons if I wanted to make a bigger batch. Any information on this would be great. I am sorry about the mistake that I made about Mixing Liquid De-Icer. I don't want to mix them together just make a batch to use of one of the following chemicals. Thank you again for your time and information.
