I purchased this to use as rock salt at the facility I maintain, when the snowfall this winter caused a shortage in rock salt in the Metro Detroit area.
I have not used this product in a water softener.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight

Not only did they have a great inventory of the product that I needed, it was at the best price, too. When I arrived, the staff had already loaded my cart. They even offered to help me get my purchase into my car to take home. With a convenient store located on my commute, a simple trip to the service desk got me in and out in minutes! Online ordering with store pickup is great...
Pros: Good Size & Weight

The 40 lb. Solar Salt Crystals satisfies my whole-house water softening requirement. The 40 Lb. weight is manageable from Auto to Furnace Room; 80 Lb. bags are simply too heavy, even for a 6'8", 275 guy (true many years before reaching current age of 72). The product size and quality 'works for me'.
Pros: Good Size & Weight
Cons: 40 lb. bags becoming heavy for 72+ year old.

I do my own water system maintenance and having this product available for p/u at the local HD makes my life a lot easier. Now if I could just get it to load itself into the tank....
Pros: cheaper than culligan
Cons: Heavy

This salt was recommended for my water softener as was purchasing through Home Depot. I checked prices locally and Home Depot was the best. Ordering online for store pickup was also very convenient.

Purchased to use in a saltwater pool. Had heard there could be coral and trash in it. Found 6 dime sized pieces in 25 bags. Worked great.
Pros: cost less than pool salt

Product contaminated with dirt.

No, I do not recommend this product.
After adding it to my water softener's brine tank the brine water became cloudy with a lot of bubbles on the surface. The sides of the tank had what I can only call brown slime. I couldn't scoop out the contamination so wound up completely emptying the brine tank and scrubbing it out.
Have used Morton crystals in the past with no problems.
Cons: contaminated

I recently got a saltwater converter for my smallish above ground pool. This was by far the best/cheapest solution for converting 5k gallons of fresh water to salt water. Beats buying multiple 5lb boxes of table salt from Costco...
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight
