Ice Melt FAQs:

  • Some kinds of Ice melt can negatively affect your hardscaping because water can run down into cracks in your hardscaping and freeze. It expands when it freezes, causing the cracks to get bigger.
  • By paying attention to the drainage near your hardscapes you can help this problem. Also, ice melts like calcium chloride are less damaging than others to concrete.
  • Ice melt can be made from many different materials like sodium chloride, magnesium chloride, calcium chloride, sodium acetate, and urea. Each type has pros and cons, so do your research before buying!
  • Calcium chloride is typically regarded as the best performing ice melt for fast melting and long-lasting action. 
  • Calcium chloride is generally considered the best ice melt for concrete.
  • Rock salt is a type of ice melt. Its technical name is sodium chloride, and it’s simply salt that comes from salt mines. Typically, rock salt is the cheapest ice melt available.
  • Sodium acetate and Urea are both considered environmentally friendly ice melts. They are not salt-based and do not contain chlorides, making them better for the environment than other alternatives.
  • Some ice melts can be toxic or irritating to your children or your pets. Some ice melts might cause chemical burns on your dog or cat's paws, or they might be harmful to your toddler if they are swallowed. Please follow all warnings and advisory notices on the ice melt product.
  • The best substance of melting ice depends on your scenario. Ice melts with low melting points will melt ice even in very cold situations. Ice melts with a long residual action last longer than others. Calcium chloride has one of the lowest melting points, though other ice melts have similar or longer residual action.
  • Hot water typically does melt ice - however, a rapid change of temperature on hardscapes can be bad for them. If you do choose to use hot water we recommend using only small amounts to begin thawing the ice. Finish the thawing process with an ice melt.

Schaefferstown is a small unincorporated community in southeastern Lebanon County, PA. In 2010 the population was recorded as 941 people. The census area covers 2.7 square miles.

Though located in Lebanon County, Schaefferstown predates Lebanon County by about one hundred years. (Lebanon County was formed out of Lancaster County  in 1813) Schaefferstown is small but rich in history. It is not known exactly when the first settlers arrived in Schaefferstown, but it is though to have been prior to 1725. The original settlement was called the Lebanon Trading Post.

The first settlers were German Jews and were skilled craftsmen. Later as non-Jewish German settlers came to the area the original Jewish German settlers disappeared. 

The town was established by Alexander Scheaffer. Alexander was also responsible for the construction of the water system known located today in what is known as Fountain Park. It was built between the years of 1744 and 1750.

The water system is the oldest gravitational conveyance system by underground pipes in the United States that is still operational today . It provides potable drinking water for the residents of Schaefferstown.

Scheafferstown is serviced by several major roads. RA Route 897, PA Route 501, and PA Route 419 all pass through the town. The two main water sheds are Hammer Creek to the south and Tulpehocken Creek to the north. Hammer Creek is a part of the Conestoga River watershed and flows into the Susquehanna River. Tulpehocken Creek flows into the Schuylkill River and is a part of the Deleware River watershed.

Schaefferstown is served by the Schaefferstown Fire Co. and Schaefferstown EMS. Both organizations are staffed by volunteers and rely on donations from the residents of Schaefferstown to operate. 

According to the Schaefferstown Chamber of Commerce, the economy employes 779, the unemployment rate is 8.3%, and sixty five businesses make up the economy. Three industrial machinery manufacturers, three banks, and three church and religious organizations comprise the largest industries.
