Has anyone found dowflakes, peladow, or prestone driveway heat in Eastern PA? Poconos, Lehigh Valley or Philadelphia areas?

Mo and Sanjay found some somewhere between you and State College, maybe they can say exactly where. It seems to be hard to find dowflake or peladow. Sanjay gave me some of the dowflake and it seems to be working in my tank so far, although it mixes up a bit cloudier than turbo calcium did.

I'm pretty sure what I bought was Prestone Driveway Heat....I bought it from my local walmart of all places. :) That was last winter, but they had it this winter too.
I used it with no issues, although I was concerned with the occasional black pebble in the mix. But since I only added what dissolved it didn't cause a problem.
I've actually had a few bags of Peladow on my US Foods truck during this past winter. I'll have to check into how much they charge.

I contacted the makers of QuickJoe Ice Melt and their product is a repackage of Peladow.
I currently use it to make Randy's Recipe.

Thanks everybody! Now QuickJoe Ice Melt I can find! (seems like it's the only thing I can find) Looks like styrofoam bbs, correct?

Right... and I'm currently using that in Randy's recipe.
