good luck.... usually homedepot carries something equivalent.....(prestone) during the winter months....but this winter they had something else.i think used a blend of chemicals. something like potassium chloride instead of calcium chloride... no good

I had looked into getting Dowflake or Peladow from my parents' date=' they own an ACE hardware, at wholesale prices. But it comes in 90lbs bags and you gotta buy like full pallets. Thats more than we could get rid of i think.[/quote']

Yeah, its a good DIY, but you need to have the stuff and that makes it really hard..So I think I am going to go with baking soda for PH and pickling lime and then buy Seachem's calcium carbonate and it will be easier that way.
