That really depends what you mean by grit. If it's just powdered rock, there is no effect. If you mean rock salt, then the freezing point is reduced because the salt dissolves. The lowest freezing point achievable for salt solution is - 21.1 degrees C.

grit has salt in it. salt has a higher freezing point so it stops water from frezzing unless it is really cold

The boiling point increases and the freezing point decreases.

### What happens to the freezing point of pure water when salt is added to it?

it lowers it. impurities lower the melting and raise the boiling point of substances. they also cause the melting point to fall over a range now. for example, water's melting point was initially 0 but upon adding salt it now is -5 to -1 degrees celsius.
