I use it too. You can get all the parts from LFS in the area. I know that Joel (waves) sells it in a re-fillable container. IDK if Bob sells it (probably), and you can get it from Bulk reef supply (dot com).

Same chemical, but of know purity. The stuff you get from HD is unknown purity, and not guaranteed to be safe for your tank.

 

Although, the baking soda is probably food grade. If it is good enough for you to eat, then it should be OK in your tank.

I got one gallon of each, and have used about 1/4 of each in the two or three months that I have been using it. But I have two tanks, and one that sucks up the calcium like it was water. I under-dosed for a while, then I over-dosed for a while, now I am dosing a medium amount and think I have found the balance.

 

Next time I am going to order two gal. of each so it will last a longer time.
