Is Marfield Controsoil still available

I found amazon is not currently selling Controsoil as the had in the past. They now only have it from external sellers at $150+ per bag! I haven't found it available anywhere else and the website Controsoil doesn't appear to be functional. Was controsoil discontinued?

There are a lot of theories about what happened. Regardless it appears they are gone - website down, email addresses down, no one answers the phone.

If you look on the forums, looks like Brightwell is similar if not the same product. I just saw the Brightwell sustrate is now sold at Drs Foster and Smith - search around and see if you can find a coupon. I just bought a bag at 15% off. I have not opened the bag yet but it sure does look like Controsoil.

Thanks for the answers. Too bad it isn't still available but I'll consider the Brightwell as an option.
