That one appears to be fine. Some brands include larger amount of other chemicals that aren't as pure.

Also see:


Calcium hardness can be raised with calcium chloride or calcium chloride dihydrate. They are available in some areas as Peladow, Dowflake, Tetra Flake, or Tetra 94, often sold as a deicer by hardware stores, and some big box stores, in colder climates. Pool stores will carry either calcium chloride or calcium chloride dihydrate under a variety of names, including Hardness Plus, Balance Pak 300, Calcium Hardness Increaser, etc. Calcium products should be spread across the surface of the deep end of the pool.

Thanks, as great to know after spending about an hour at Lowe’s while they went looking for it. Not much demand here in Virginia for ice melt this time of the year, but due to the wait time they threw in a second 50# bag at no cost!

SCORE!
I’m in NC and can’t find it in stores during summer. Next time you need some you can order it from Sam’s Club - Joe Ice melt in the RED label bags. The price you see includes shipping to your door. (If you don’t have a membership Find a friend with one and give them the cash. They can order it for you and have shipped to your door.)
