can this be used to kill tree roots in sewer line?
Asked by: Ray
I just had an excellent local septic tank company come and pump out my septic tank. Salt in reasonable doses according to the owner, does not harm septic tanks. In fact, because I am in the South, salt, a natural substance, and not an artificial product, IS added to septic tanks to help control the relentless advance of growing roots from nearby trees and so on. Salt burns and stuns the advancing root network, where it stops or backs up BECAUSE roots do not like salt. If this meant that you only had to address the root blockage problem in warm climates every 8 years instead of every 2, than it might be worthwhile to use salt. In moderate amounts twice a year: 50 lbs for initial dose, additional salt 25 lbs, as time goes on, I can see where it may be beneficial.

Is this salt suitable of making homemade ice cream?

Asked by: David
Yes, per the safety data sheet (SDS) provided below this product is pure sodium chloride salt without additives. The SDS shows all of the uses including pharmaceutical and culinary processing and lists the alternate names. You can absolutely use it for cooling in an ice cream maker, but not too cook with or inside the ice cream mix itself as it probably has some rock and bits that are probably not ideal in food.

50 lbs. Rock Salt Bag is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 568.

I thought they would break up easily. but they did not. I dropped 1 on the ground flat to break it up. the bag tore across the top, not totally opening, thankfully, but the contents did not break up at all. I beat the bag with a trowel to no avail. I used a hammer, then small hand axe. no good. I finally used a small hand sledge hammer to get some large pieces to break off. I put them in a 5 gallon pail a few at a time and hit them with the small sledge and a big sledge. I used what broke off on my driveway. I bought a few new bags and used them. then went back to the solid bags. used thoe hammers off and on for 2 or 3 days to finally break up the bag full and spread it. i'll never buy another bag that is at all solid. I was tired from hitting the salt & am tired of writing about it.

It is a blend which allows for melt at lower temperatures than salt alone. I find I can typically purchase ice melter at my local Home Depot for lower cost than most other retailers in my area. Our geographical zone tends to receive higher amounts of snow and ice than most other regions so for the sake of safety, keeping an ample supply on hand is a must. And since it's a blend, I find it doesn't cause any major problems with plants after the spring thaw or problems with pets.

I put some down on my pavement and steps before it snowed it only snowed about 2 inches and I did not have to shovel at all. It worked very well, I could tell that it was working because while it was snowing. you could see the snow dissolving. I am a divorcee and I thought I was going to have and go shovel but to my surprise I didn't and I loved that. This was my first time using this product and I would purchase it again.

Frozen water is slippery and sometimes hazardous to walk on. I bought this rock salt from Home Depot. I spread the rock salt onto the areas where the ice had formed. The salt melted the ice as advertised. I would use this product again. I would recommend this product to others. Another satisfied customer!

As the temperature dropped, the salt continued to function stronger. The information on the bag rated the salt up to -20 degrees and let me tell you that it worked. The temperature outside was -15 and the salt melted the snow and ice. For the price, I purchased 2 bags and yes I do recommend this product.

It is a 50lbs bag of rock salt as advertised - it won't clear a snowed-in driveway, but after clearing a driveway or walkway it keeps the ice from forming. It won't work below 15 degree, but that is physics/chemistry and you can't get around that aspect of salt... 50 lbs is a heavy bag to carry, so have a smaller bag to pour some into and carry around to spread.

The rock salt I bought was the only one home depot had and the rock salt was to big I had to use the whole bag for my three car wide drive way I have bought a bag of small rock salt and the results were better and the bag lasted a bit longer so yea I would not purchase this again I'll have to buy more then one bag in the future
