What’s The Deal With Rock Salt Anyway?

For years, rock salt has been the go-to. Cheap, easy to get. Sprinkle a little, and your driveway transforms from a potential lawsuit to a walk in the (snowy) park. But… there’s a downside.

  • Pets: Ever notice your pet limping or incessantly licking their paws after a walk during winter? Rock salt crystals can get lodged between their pads, causing irritation, discomfort, and even burns!
  • Concrete: Speaking of rock salt concrete finish, it ain’t so smooth. Over time, rock salt can degrade the concrete, leading to chipping, scaling, and pitting. Repairing or replacing? Expensive!
  • Vehicles: Ah, the dreaded rust. Rock salt accelerates corrosion, making that brand-new sedan look like it has seen better decades.
  • Sidewalks & Roads: Erosion is real, my friend. Too much rock salt can weaken the structure and integrity of asphalt and other surfaces. This means more potholes, cracks, and costs for repairs.
  • Environment: Runoff from rock salt can harm plants and seep into groundwater. That’s bad news for our streams, ponds, and, yep, our water supply.
