    Did anyone use liquids for ice control this year for the first time.If so how did it work,did it work?
    Did you spray directly onto the roadway or pretreat your salt in some way.
    We have used them for 2 years and have had good luck.Just curious to see how others did.

    Yes we did and they worked pretty well.

    Only problem we have to work out is training the driver better.:D

    We used pre-wet our salt, and or sand/salt mix with mag cloride.

    I used magic the last two storms. I think the name is apropriate! I plan to set up some type of pre wetting system for next year. Pretreating with liquid magic worked better then anything I've tryed so far.

    We use Clearway 1 to prewet our dry material spreaders (supposed to at least) and for our airfield de icer trucks.

    The stuff works great!
