View Full Version : Local cheap calcium chloride in Johnson City
02/26/2006, 09:40 AM
I live in the Johnson City area. I have been looking for a cheap supply of calcium chloride. The local Lowes and Home Depot do not carry Dowflakes. Any recommendations? I am using a calcium reactor but still need to supplement occasionally with calcium chloride. Quite expensive over time.

Call your local co-op, they probably have it in 25-50lb bags for <$15. Otherwise you can check walmart for Prestone Ice Melt. You should read Randy's chemistry forum about adding this stuff with baking soda. I know of at least two of us that overshot the desired outcome so please shoot for 1/2 to 3/4 how much you "think" you need to add. Wait a week before adding more. It works, shot me to over 500 from 350 and my CA Rx has been able to keep it to 450 for the past 2 months without any more boosts necessary.
