I really wanted this to work, but it did not. After 2 days sitting on my roof and gutters, virtually no change. I would have at least expected the spots where the tablets landed to melt, but it doesn't appear they have. It's been mid-20's temperature wise so thought it should work. You can see where the tablets landed in the pics. I wish I had my $20 back.

Worked exactly as described
We had a terrible winter, with significant ice dams on our new home. These melted the ice dam from below, allowing water to drain off the roof. I ordered extra to have on hand for the future. The picture below is the ice dam that fell off my roof after melting from below. The roof melt tabs melt through the ice, to the roof and then drains under the ice instead of backing up into the attic.

Don't waste your money
Don't waste your time or money on this product. I emailed the company's customer service as well as VP Tom O'Malley and told them I had a bad batch of their product. Mr. O' Malley did not respond but customer service asked for my address so they could send me a container to return the product for testing. They never did send me anything. So, poor product, poor customer service equals poor company. The product didn't melt jack. I tried it on the ground in a pile of snow to make sure. Again, do not buy this product.

Worked great at melting channels for the ice to melt and run off without jamming or damaging my gutters. I bought two tubs for next Winter.
