    Purple Ice Melt?

    I purchased some calcium chloride ice melt from the feed store. When I got home, I see that its dyed purple. Is this safe for my pool or should I just wait til next winter and spread it on my driveway?

    magnesium chloride 1%
    potassium 1%
    acid purple liquid colorant blend...

    yeesh...

    I've never been able to locate ice-melter to be used as calcium myself.

    It's the ONLY thing i get at the pool store.

    I'm in and out quick before they try to sell me something else.
