This product works. But if you have huge ice dams... don't expect a miracle to happen and poof... your ice is gone overnight. This product will indeed "help" get the snow and ice to melt and start draining. Worth every penny for around $20.00. Use a roof rake to get most of the snow off, then toss the ice pucks up on the roof. You might need to pick up another bucket or two as well. I had a puck fall on my driveway(4 inches off packed snow and ice..) and over time melted right to the the gravel of my driveway. Speed up the melting with these salt pucks. I had some " milky, cloudy " looking icicles hang off my roof as opposed to clear icicles. This was due to the salt from the salt puck getting the snow and ice to melt. So yes, they do work.

I got this product at my local ACE. I was having alot of snow and ice build up on the back of my house. I tossed around 10 tablet up and tried to keep them kinda close so it would knock out my ice problem in that area. Well 3 days have gone by and the tablets are still up there and soo is the ice. They seemed to do nothing at all. I even put one of these on the ground to test an icy spot. NOTHING!! DO not waste your money. I would not even give this a 1 star

    Comments about KMI® 14lb Roof Melt Tablets (RM65S):

    After reading reviews and comparing other products and choices I called true Value, they had it and had good reports. I had lots of ice dam and huge icicles below my chimney (next summer I will install the class B pipe as recommended). Also my separate garage which I heat only when I need it had the same issue. I saw the icicles disappear in two days and never returned. The ice dams were still there but not solid ice anymore. Value, function ease of use was above expectation. GREAT PRODUCT I shared some with my neighbor too!

        Comments about KMI® 14lb Roof Melt Tablets (RM65S):

        Yesterday, I awoke at 5 and found water dripping into the bathroom, presumably caused by an ice dam. Window was frozen, so I went to backyard and threw a dozen or so pucks onto the roof near the window. Thawed the window with a hair dryer, and I also put two cakes in some old hose and draped that over the dam. Within an hour, the leak stopped and I could see water dripping off the edge of the roof. Still not leaking in a day and a half later. I will add cakes to the roof daily.

        Get a roof rake

        Comments about KMI® 14lb Roof Melt Tablets (RM65S):

        Did nothing. Ice dams are as big or bigger after using it. Just simply remove the snow with the roof rake and save your time by not running and throwig the tablets like a kid...

              Comments about KMI® 14lb Roof Melt Tablets (RM65S):

              It was the first time using this product and it did work. I will buy more. You don't see the results right away, but it does get under the ice dam. The water makes it way thru the gutters and down the spouts. Sometimes,the pucks slid off the roof or ice dam. I saw on line someone used a rake and placed them in or onto the snow/ice dams. This worked. I did use all of them. The water was dripping above our bay window. We had several snow storms and severe cold. We now expect warmer weather and rain. There would be more damage, we'll worth it.

                Comments about KMI® 14lb Roof Melt Tablets (RM65S):

                Put two pills 3' from the edge around 3:00pm. By 5:00pm it had melted a 2-3' section down past the gutter. This has basically solved our ice dam issue as we will use the pills to melt gaps every 5 feet. So our dam is no longer trapping water.

                I am not sure if this product differs from other ice dam solutions as it is relatively expensive but it works, and that counts!

                    Don't bother - get a roof rake

                    By Connecticut Consumer

                    from Newtown, CT

                    Comments about KMI® 14lb Roof Melt Tablets (RM65S):

                    I used one box and returned the other two. I can't speak to 1 or 2 inches of ice, but if you have a "real" ice dam, this aint' going to do it. Get a roof rake and clear the snow - that's the best solution to keep the water from making it's way into your house.

                    P.S. these tablets look and smell just like the ones you put in your pool. I can't see how they are safe for the roof, metal, and plants in the ground in the spring. We'll see in a few months what happens.
