When I go to that Home Depot link I get a warning "shipping is unavailable for this item" and also "Item is unavailable in store".

There has to be something similar in your area.  I think it's main use is in some kind of water filtration application.  Maybe my area is unique in using some strange water filtration method.  I have seen it though the local clay suppliers (Missouri) but it is more expensive.  For example, through the KC pottery supply place I use it is $17 for a 50# bag compared to $5 from Menards. 

I just looked on a NH Home depot page and it does say not available. I wonder if you asked directly if they could bring some in.  I am curious what the main use of this sand is, and why it is only regionally available.  All the home stores around here (HD, lowes, and menards) have some version of it on hand in large quantities all the time.
