Straight salt is the way to go. You can sell clients on a higher price because of straight salt by explaining that they will lose the cleanup and it will work better, quicker. You use a lot less straight salt so I think it ends up being a wash as far as material costs go. One thing about salt though is that it doesn't work below @18 degrees. In those cases you don't have the benefit of sand for traction until it warms up or the sun hits it. For this reason we are looking into magic salt for next season....it is considerably more effective than salt and you use even less material to do the same job. Not sure if we are going with it yet, it is really expensive.
