            Works well keeping the deck and walkway clear of ice. We had so much ice the beginning of winter, I had to buy more.

            Not good at colder temps

                  Comments about -8°F Ice Melter 50-lb. Carton:

                  In the real world, this product's ice melting performance is similar to plain sodium chloride. In fact, it is sodium chloride based. I used it yesterday at 18F. In the shady areas there was little melting. Exactly the results I get with plain rock salt.
                  The added value in this product is the claimed reduced damage to plants, metals and paving due to a sprayed-on coating of unlisted materials. It's difficult to judge the veracity of these claims. From multiple uses I know this manufacturer has greatly exaggerated real world cold temperature performance (as many makers of these products do). So I'm now skeptical about their safety claims.
                  For low temperature performance, northern users should probably buy the blue "pro" version of this product, which is sold at good price here at Gempler's.
                  I only recommend this red version of the product for use above 20F.
                  Both Premiere ice melt products are sodium chloride based and are likely not suitable for new concrete.

                      I use the product for my driveway which faces north and doesn't get much sun and the ice/snow does not melt quickly. I also use it for two walkways and entrances that also face north with little sun. I sometimes put the product on these areas prior to a snowfall, and the snow melts as it hits the ground. Also, the product sometimes stays intact which makes it useful for another snowfall.
