Is AlfaTrak cost effective?
YES. Our research showed that a 50 lb bag of AlfaTrak can cover up 5000 square feet safely and effectively. That makes AlfaTrak very cost effective at only about $.07 per square foot. That may be slightly more than sand, but AlfaTrak comes with zero damaging effects and is a breeze to work with. AlfaTrack also has multiple uses and make a great fertilizer. Now that's real value for the money. Comparatively, the cost of rock salt for example never includes their destructive impacts to our property, the environment, or to our health that makes them considerably more expensive. Research from the U.S. Transportation Research Board (1991) showed that every ton of salt used for ice melting creates downstream damage of at least $2,000 per ton.
Why should I use AlfaTrak when sand is cheaper?
AlfaTrak is very comparable to sand, in cost. AlfTrak costs only a few cents more per square yard than sand. Adding in the damage to your lawn or property repairs you may need to make as a result of using too much sand and the costs are about the same. Taking into consideration ALL the destructive impacts sand can have; damage to your property, damage to the environment and damage to your health, sand becomes much more expensive than AlfaTrak in the long run.
How long will AlfaTrak keep?
If stored in a cool, dry place, AlfaTrak will remain effective for several years.
