Question for Hal or anyone else quest
What ratio do you mix your Propylene glycol to water. I am not going to use calcium again, it's hard on traps! I got 'em cleaned up but why use that stuff. I ran out of waxed dirt in a week. Guess I will make more next year. laugh
Thanks!

In the deep South, I have used it 1:2, Propylene Glycol:water. However, most folks I know out of the deep South use 1:1. Under extreme conditions I have used 2:1. Figure your weather, test it, and work out what is best in your area.
Adios,

Mine went straight from the gallon jug into my squirt bottle. Why would you want to hose down something with water that you are trying to prevent from freezing? (except for cost, I guess)Frank. confused

LOL, that does sound dumb after you put it THAT way. I thought that you should mix it just like automotive coolant but there were no directions on the bottle. shocked I'll just use it as is. Thanks!
