Ice Melting Salt Socks
|If you have ever used a "snow melt sock" or salt sock before, you know that they provide an inexpensive method for removing roof ice dams, preventing icy steps and improving your home's heating efficiency.
Roof ice dams are an annoying source of roof damage, leaks, and heat loss in the winter.
The main causes are drip melt from improperly capped warm air vent pipes and poor roof insulation.
Laying a snow melt sock onto the roof so it crosses the ice dam and overhangs the gutter
will melt through the snow and ice and create a channel for water to flow down into the gutters or off the roof.

|HOW THE ICE MELT SOCK WORKS
Prevent Ice Dams and Winter Roof Leaks
Deicer Socks are designed for use on flat or sloped roofs or steps. The socks, shipped empty, are heavy-duty polyester with velcro wrap seals and hold 3-16 pounds of de-icing salt each. The socks are easy to fill, attach to roof and remove at the end of winter. The bags may be refilled with de-icing salt as needed. The socks last all season.
* Suitable for all roofs or steps
* Large, perforated, velcro sealed socks that can be filled with de-icing salt
* Place socks just prior to freezing or inclement weather
* De-icing melt is not included (www.EZDEICER.com)
* Easy attachment to any surface (throw cord is not included).
* Refill with EZDEICER as needed
* Socks last for years
A second application may be needed when there is repeated, excessive precipitation.
The EZDEICER chemical will not hurt the roof.
|ICE MELT SOCK PLACEMENT
Typical 3 lb., 18 inch, Snow Melt Sock lasts for months*. (*based on melt of
20-40 sq. yds. of roof snow per sock used.)
