Customer Reviews

After almost three days now there has been no melting.
J. Ferris
This did not seem to be doing anything as far as melting the snow/ice...so I put one on in the snow on the ground and left it to see what would happen.
Mark Claussen
Threw them on my roof they didn't break up the ice in the gutters the water just ran over the top and dripped onto my bushes below killing them.

Just buy some calcium chloride (AutoZone, some home improvement stores), put it in women's nylons...... throw the tube on the roof and it'll melt to the shingles...making a drainage trough for the troublesome ice dams. Never use rock salt, etc.

Roof melt does not melt your ice dam away. It allows the water comming down the roof to disolve the tablet and melt a channel between the dam and the roof allowing the water to escape. The product is made from Calcium Chloride. Any ice Calcium Chloride comes in contact with will melt if the temperature is above -20F or so. The tablets do disolve so the process will end when they disapear.

Nylon stockings filled with similar products will do the same thing. Water passes through the nylon which holds a concentrated amount of ice melting product from washing away. Works well. Downside is you need a ladder to put them up and you have to retrieve the nylons after the winter is over. Hope this helps some folks out.

I tried and tried, but could not get the pucks to the roof not to mention some specific spot on the roof by throwing. I did not dare to get on a ladder since the snow banks are taller than me covered with chunk of ice from ice dam removal done by a crew that came a few days ago.

Here is what wound up working for me. I took a nylon stocking, filled it with calcium chloride to form a sausage about 4" long. To make it easier to fill the stocking I took a 16 oz yogurt container and cut out its bottom. This made a nice sturdy funnel which kept the top of the stocking wide open for pouring the calcium chloride.

Note that bigger is not better! On my first try I tried making 8-9" sausage, but it made the sock too heavy to stay on the steep roof, and it slid off.

I tied the top of the stocking onto itself and then tied it to a garden thread so I could retrieve the stocking later (who wants a roof full of stocking?). The thread turned out to be helpful on my failed attempts, when the sock wound up in the bushes and I had to pull it out and try again.

Then I took an extension pole used for a roof rake. I replaced the big rake with a small brush so it would be easier to hoist it up to the level of the roof of my dormer where my major ice dam is located.
My first few attempts were to fold the sock over the brush and dump it on the roof. But that did not work as either the stocking fell before it reached the desired spot, or I could not disengage the brush without knocking the sock down.

Finally, the solution that worked was using the pole and the brush as a lever. I put the thread attached to the sock over the brush, and raised the brush to the roof positioning it where I wanted the sock to be located.

I've read the negative reviews and they all seem to have one common denominator: the pucks aren't being placed correctly.

DON'T place these on the ice that's formed in the gutters or roof. These need to be placed (thrown) ABOVE the ice. This way as snow melts the water will carry more and more of the calcium chloride from these pucks with it. This will continue and channels will form in the ice which will give the water a path to flow off of the roof, instead of through the roof and into your home.

Alternatively you can fill pantyhose with ice melt and place these on the roof. If you choose this method, place the "legs" at a right angle to the gutter and into the gutter. This way you are defining the channel that will be formed to carry the water off of your roof. DO NOT place these directly in the gutter as it will only melt the ice in the gutter, but it won't create the channels you need to direct the water off of your roof.

The pantyhose method will work faster than the pucks but it takes more work. At the very least you'll need a ladder when you put them on the roof and then again when you retrieve the remnants.

Good luck!

I have ice dams and currently have a team of insulation installer guys mucking around in my attic. I showed them the ice melt I got for a part of the house not accessible from the attic (this stuff, calcium chloride based) and they told me to take it back. Calcium chloride is damaging to asphalt shingles. They suggested getting ice melt made of magnesium or potassium instead, which is what I'm doing.

I hoped that this would be the easy answer to our roof dam issues....it was NOT!!!! This did not seem to be doing anything as far as melting the snow/ice...so I put one on in the snow on the ground and left it to see what would happen. What happened?? NOTHING. Please...save your money and put it towards a roof rake.
Learn from my mistake.
I hope this helps someone.

Don't waste your money. I bought a bucket on-line and a bucket locally. Tossed them up onto the roof fairly close together after getting rid of a lot of snow with the roof rake. I waited... threw up the second bucket at close intervals... and waited.... Two weeks later I'm still waiting. My next try is to use old panty hose or knee high's and fill with ice melt. I'll toss those up where the ice is and then I'll wait.
