Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by skstephenson1 Best price for Potassium
I have been using this product for about 1 year now, I go through about a bag per month. The other reviewers mention it being dirty and clogging up there softener. I am not sure what type of softener they are using but I have a separate brine tank that I empty my bags into and have never had any issues or noticed a bunch of gunk at the bottom.
It is true its not pellets, this is definitely large chunk crystals, I actually prefer those for my brine tank as it takes them long to dissolve and the brine water can really absorb it before my softener goes through another cycle.

This is a terrible product. This potassium pellet leaves so much residual in my water softener tank that I had to pour water into it and used a tube to suck up all the dirty residual. It seems that the manufacturer has no quality control at all. I swear that I will never use it again. This product should be banned from being sold!! I hope HomeDepot will not sell this anymore, and find more other alternatives.

Do not buy this brand of potassium chloride. This clogs your system because it is crystals which don't dissolve very well. You need to look for actual pellets or cubes in potassium chloride (this brand only comes in crystals, even if they tell you its pellets). This brand of potassium also leaves alot of residue. Save yourself repairs and the hassle. If you can't find another brand of potassium chloride (Morton is the best), then just use the regular salt/sodium chloride option. In a nutshell this wrecks havoc on your water softener system.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by madmaus Needed an alternative
I needed an alternative and looked for potassium chloride for my RainSoft Water Softener of 10 years. I just started on my 3rd bag and so far so good. This was the only choice I had from the Home Depot I am closest to and I hope that they will eventually have more products of this nature available to their customers. The price is high but I am guessing it has a lot to do with supply and demand. I am willing to try it out a little longer and for my health's sake.
