Calcium filled tires

Recommended Posts

Guest
Is there any special handling for calcium filled tires? I am not sure if I have a set of wheels with calcium in them or if they are just filled with water. Is Calcium a polutent?

Calcium Chloride, a salt. It is very corrosive to metal, just like Sodium Chloride, plain table salt. Calcium Chloride is the salt that they use on the roads in winter in some areas. Not an extreme pollutant, but not for human consumption. Just wash your hands if you get it on them.

Thanks. I might choose a storm drain as I don't need any more problems with my 1940's house.

It is actually good for sewer line pipes as it will kill any fine roots from trees that get into pipes and plug them. I used it at my old house in its crystal form once a year to keep the roots out of the line from the house to the street. A lot cheaper than having a roto rooter come and clean the line out.

Its similar to the stuff they put on gravel roads to keep the dust down. If you have gravel , use watering can to apply. Don't put where you might track it into house ( takes a while to dry ). Don't use sprayer to apply, will kill pump in short order.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
