Calgon Water Softener - Canada

I use the GEO Method for my black tank and Calgon Water Softener seems to be getting hard to find in southern Ontario. My local Home Hardware recently discontinued stocking it.

Is anyone aware of other sources of supply for Calgon? I've tried Lowes, Home Depot, Canadian Tire & Walmart.....all to no avail.

Thanks.

I use Fabric Softer and Liquid laundry detergent. Slippery enough to allow waste to slide away in my case..

We just spent the past weekend hitting every store around looking for Calgon powder with no luck. Amazon wants about $40 for two boxes! I ordered the Rain Drops brand - two boxes for about $10 with Prime free shipping.

Interesting - Fabric Softener. If I can't find Calgon, I'll give it a try.

Thanks.

I saw it on Amazon. I thought $40 was a misprint. It should be about $8.50/box.

My better half says to have a look in the Zehrs store..... When I see it I buy a few boxes/half gallon jugs of it. I'm finding, if you don't live in a hard water area, they don't seem to carry it.

We get ours from Amazon (ordered one last week), but I also saw it at a Walmart Neighborhood Market in Arkansas a couple of weeks ago, just a smaller size than Amazon.
