Answer: 
Yes. Any type of salt will crack concrete. What happens is the salt diffuses into the grain boundaries and cracks the cement or concrete there. This leads to macroworld concrete spalling on your concrete. Look at where your car tires have tracked in salt inside your garage. It is spalling there no matter how old it is.

Yes. Any type of salt will crack concrete. What happens is the salt diffuses into the grain boundaries and cracks the cement or concrete there. This leads to macroworld concrete spalling on your concrete. Look at where your car tires have tracked in salt inside your garage. It is spalling there no matter how old it is.
Hot water poured onto a stoop or stairs covered with with ice, will melt the ice even down to 20 degrees. Next, blow off all the water you can with a leaf blower. Get it as "dry" as you can get it. It can't be snowing when you do this. Any thin layer of ice will evaporate in a few hours, even down to 20 degrees. sunlight helps but so does wind movement.
Use all purpose sand until conditions are right to remove any ice on a stoop or stairs.
What about ice forming at about 32 degrees? What can I do? Buy or find a roofer that uses Titanium UDL synthetic "roofing paper" under shingles. HD carries Titanium but it is not cheap. $117 per roll for 4 foot wide and 100 feet long. If you find a roofer this summer doing a roof, offer to buy some UDL from him at a minimum of $1.50 per foot. It won't crack in the winter because it is a thin film of polyethylene, it's reinforced, and textured for gripping in rain water or dew.
The UDL will stop most ice forming from falling sleet when it's near freezing and it makes it easy to broom off sleet that is falling on it. The anti-slip surface of reinforced fiber netting works very well on rain on roofs, but it works in the winter too. For steps, roll it down the treads and put bricks at the two ends of each tread to avoid it blowing away.
Remember, hot water, a leaf blower, and a broom are relatively cheap and never spalls concrete.
Always wash off salt inside a garage on the floor when you see "salt feathers" of salt from your car forming on concrete that is drying or is dry. Wash it off and squeegee the excess water off. In the spring, do it at least three times.

Answer: 
There are plenty of different kinds of "rock salt" some are more corrosive than others but it's mostly only an issue on cement that isn't over a year old.

Answer: 
Honestly salt is salt. If any salt is used on non-cured concrete is will damage surface. Many claim it needs to be over a year old and is always "curing" through the years. I personally find the cheapest works as well as the more expensive salt. But my concrete is not new and I always rinse it off once the bad weather passes. That's just my two cents!

Answer: 
NO! Salt is not salt, this is not food grade and may contain traces of other elements that are not safe to eat, go to the grocery store and get edible salt.

Answer: 
Yes, as long it is sodium chloride. Calcium and magnesium chloride are also sold as rock salt but will not kill most weeds. I believe this is sodium chloride.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Not with a SnowEX SR-210 Wireless Multi-Purpose Salt Spreader you won't. Five hundred plus feet of 15 degree driveway needs chemical treatment each time it snows. Been using Rock Salt for several years so when Home Depot displays and sells a bright yellow 50 pound bag of ROCK SALT, it was easily purchased. Expectations being the contents is actually ROCK SALT. As it turns out a very small percentage of product is rock salt sized products. The rest is flaky material. By the time it is poured into the spreader hopper, it ran and drooled out the bottom. A 50 pound bag evacuated within 300 feet of 50% spin power on the spreader. Fifty pounds of real Rock salt gives me about two and one half trips. No doubt, the product does melt as it was distributed in 5 degrees and within several hours it did clear ice from the driveway. The trick is to balance this product with real rock salt so you can actually get a balanced distribution pattern. Suggest consideration be made in renaming this product away from the ROCK SALT headline and define the texture and sizing of the contents more realistically and clearly. January 9, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good rock salt!!!!!!!!!!! what can you really say about rock salt-IT WORKS LIKE ROCK SALT - MELTED ICE AND SNOW LIKE IT SHOULD. GOOD PRICE FOR PRODUCT!!!!!!!!!!!!! March 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Melts really well, but not good for salt spreaders This is great for typical salting of the driveway and side walk. Works really well. Unfortunately, not ideal for salt spreaders. It's very fine and blows out of the spreader while driving down the road. We purchased a pallet thinking it was the same yellow bag stuff we purchased in 2012 but it wasn't. December 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT AND CHEAP SALT FOR YOUR BUSINESS or HOME I really like it,but it is hard to find once is snow appear.So i am smart now - as far i see it online,i buy right away for pick 5 bags of them and i am full for winter. February 11, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not the same product in the picture. This rock salt should be called powder salt because It looks like it is very old because it isn't in the traditional rock salt form. It also looks damp wich would give it more weight. It also wasn't the same name brand as in the picture. December 10, 2013
