I used to buy my salts from
Try ebay. 'Pence per kg' compared with aquatic supplies.

Mine was 99.9% pure and was sold for flotation tanks. I.e. 'zero' gravitate flotation for the relief of stress in a sensory deprivation tank, also called an isolation tank or flotation tank used for restricted environmental stimulation therapy (REST). It is a dark, soundproof tank that is filled with a foot or less of salt water, now mag sulphate, less stingy on cuts etc.
I would have thought the treatment would have come under Article 87, third paragraph, of the 1949 Geneva Convention.
To be serious the problem I had was storage for sack that arrived, but it was a bargain.

Yes, as @ian_m said, be careful with Epsom salt (or any other salt for that matter...); make sure you get something that at least claims to be pure and food grade - and double check that it is odorless... that can give you a pretty high confidence that its good for your tank.

Cheers,
Michael
