    DIY Calcium additive Canadian Style!

    I was recently reading Randy Holmes Farleys DIY 2 part additive, and i started out on my search of a CaCl source in canada, well i tried just about every company in the maritimes to get a roadsalt that was similar to the dowflake but i couldn't find any.

    I did find out that i can order a 10kg bag of flaked CaCl from a chemical supply company for about 60$, obviously a 10kg bag is way too big for me alone to use, so if anyone wanted to pitch in and get some they could just let me know, 2 cups makes a gallon of calcium additive at 37,000 ppm

    I allready ordered the bag so i've got a bunch sitting around, i must say even at 60$ i saved a ton of money i was spending that for a gallon of kents

    I'm in Saint John NB,
    So if anyone locally wanted some they could just by, or if someone from away wanted some then they could have it shipped
