Yesterday I had the ice taken down from the eaves....hundreds of pounds of it. Has anyone used roof melt tablets? Last year I tried the trick about putting salt in a nylon stocking and throwing it up on the roof. I didn't see any improvement and come spring I had a pair of nylon stockings on my roof. Personally, I don't see how the pellets would be any better, save for the fact that I wouldn't have to hire someone to climb up on my roof and get the pantyhose down once it got warm.
