I've had this issue as well with an Alaskan bag. Now when its a bit humid I can see the outline of the puddle on the pad.
Hoping a tub will prevent that even if it separates. This is a good size so I can get a fresh tub every couple years.

Generally its all the same. Get what's convenient for you.
If a product is truly horrible you'll read about it already multiple times.

Thanks for these suggestions. The only one that showed up at the advertised price in BC was the Landscapers choice. I got a few bags thankfully. Let's hope I get the confirmation now for pick up.

Water Softener from HD
I'm interested in this - how granular is this salt? is it in chunks or is it the same as a snowmelter - little mini pellets

Actually, they do. I order two bags last year and got them in two different shipments.

Why are 2x 10kg bags cheaper than 20kg bag

The Siftto is in small and medium flakes, not chunky at all. No tripping hazard with that product. Works very well for me here.

This Jet Blue Ice melter that is the thread topic. It wasn't clear until I looked at the images and saw it on the label.

my Alaskan experience: transfer some from the big bag to smaller container. Use smaller container to spread; better for hand/back and less likely crumb up/release the blue liquid. I eventually collect enough moisture absorber packets from online shopping/packaging and stick them on the cover of the small container. No more blue liquid.

This one from Lowe's is almost half the price, so doesn't that make the Princess Auto one a pretty weak "deal"? Unless you really want to have a bucket, or you wanna keep smaller buckets around multiple locations and don't have any random containers already.

Or is the Princess Auto one much better? They both claim -32C, pet safe, and "smart melt".

It's also stated on the flyer image in the OP.
But yeah it can easily be missed.

I have tried to order this one twice (Sunday and yesterday) and both times order has been cancelled.
First they called and said it was a problem with the stock as it wasn't updated. Second time they haven't even bothered and just cancelled it. Reason: OOS, even thou on their website it still shows as avaiable.

Anyone have a preference for use on interlock stones? Just got it done this fall, don't want to ruin or stain the stones, if that's even a thing.

also on the same boat.
also which is the best value at the moment for salt?

getting it cancelled is likely

This is what I also got. Started with $45/month for 1Gbps and now it's sitting at $65.00. I might call Robbers and see if they can lower it to $50 like the OP's screenshot.

I ordered a similar product that was on sale by Lowes. They said my order was ready to pick up... didn't mention that 3 of the 4 items (including 2 bags of the salt) were cancelled. Really, Lowes?! Is that the best you can do? Staples was worse - they charge me for an item, tell me it is shipped, then I call them and ask for it a week later and they say sorry, we ran out and we aren't going to restock so give us a couple of weeks to refund your money. REALLY?!

On Sunday 3 bags (out of 11 available) from Etobicoke. And yesterday 2 bags (out of 2 available) from Brampton.
After they cancelled my first order, on Monday, they have updated the stock to zero. But today, it still shows 2 available in Brampton.
Seems like they don't even care anymore.
