Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Troy Works as advertised!
I applied this product on a steep driveway in order to prevent ice from accumulating and creating a hazardous situation. The product was easy to apply. I used the Bare Ground battery-powered applicator but I am sure a pump spray would have also worked just fine. I was disappointed to see snow accumulate as I thought the product would melt it quick enough but it did accumulate and I had to shovel. The product did prevent the snow from adhering to the concrete making the shoveling very easy. It did prevent ice from building which was my primary goal. My driveway is north facing and I found that I had the driest driveway of all my neighbors, even those that were south facing. Don't expect this product to prevent snow accumulation for anything more than just flurries but it will help prevent the snow/ice from adhering to the concrete and causing slick, hazard situations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by civicnj Great product - pet friendly
I have used the de-icer for the over 5 years with great results. The case price is better- it is actually the cost of 3 from the manufacturer thus the 4 become free. This is a pet friendly - enviro friendly product.
Their new products for ice dams is a great idea, and traction particles are a good advantage. - NO more salt powder to clean up. Used by highway dept. to keep highways ice free.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SMAJ37 I love this product, safe for all area use, wood, concrete, asphalt.
Have been using this De-Icer for over 4 yrs. It works great and lives up to its claim. I have found that best used early hours before first snow or freezing rain arrives, then another application after. Makes shoveling/snow blowing much easier, faster as well as getting down to and cleaning actual surface. I also spray inside my snow blower auger and chute which prevents snow clogging or blockage, especially with wet/heavy snow. it's residual effect is great. I especially like that it works for almost a full week of daily snow on the drive/walkways. Reducing amount of time n effort to clean areas....

I live in Brooklyn, NY and with all the snow we were getting this winter it became very tiring for me and my husband to have to shovel all the time. We decided to try this product and we are so glad we did. It worked just as it says it would. It kept our driveway, walkway, and steps from freezing over with black ice. Our neighbors even asked us what was our secret since our side was always bare to the ground. I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dragonfly325 Didn't work
Tried putting this our sidewalks and steps before a light snow and it didn't help at all. Tried putting on a heavier and heavier coating to see if that helped. That helped a little, but mainly in places where the liquid was applied so heavy it pooled. Applying it in that heavy of an application also made it not cost effective for the area each gallon covered.
