ABOUT ROCK SALT
At Summers Irrigation, we plan for the precise services that may be required when a storm actually hits. Make a plan with the provider that will best suit your needs.
Rock salt lowers the freezing/thawing threshold of water from 32 degrees to a few degrees lower, depending on weather conditions. This allows ice to melt and also helps prevent ice from forming.
Spread a layer of rock salt on any frozen ground surface where you might need to walk, including your front porch, patio, driveway and sidewalk.
Rock salt works the best when it is at least 15 degrees outside and when the sun is shining on the area where you spread the salt.
