    Depends on the results you want. Brand is relatively unimportant - all salt is chemically equal (and corrosive). It's the additives that will make the difference. Learn about the various treatments and you will learn about what will work best for your situation. Some treatments are very corrosive and some are less corrosive. Some are fairly inexpensive and some will bust most budgets.

    One truism - straight salt WILL result in damaged concrete and is ineffective at temps much below freezing (look it up).

    Mick is telling the truth on the damage and salt's freezing temp is -5* but is nearing in-affectiveness at 15*

    but with you being in KY i think salt will be fine for you, or any other melter as far as that goes....just buy what ever is the cheapest since you a re worried about price.
