Any reefers in PA, NJ, NYC, or CT have Soda lime ?

I'm looking for some soda lime for an experiment. I understand that people who have reefs sometimes use soda lime. I wanted to order some, but it costs $125 for 36 pounds which is too expensive (and too much soda lime for my needs).

I'd like to buy a few pounds of the stuff, does anyone know any reef keepers in PA, NJ, NYC, or CT who use the stuff? Perhaps a forum or club in these areas?

Alternatively, does anyone have some soda lime they can sell me? I can pay for it and for postage if it is too far to drive over.

Is it the same stuff used as a CO2 absorbent in anesthesia machines, and if so, is it okay if it has absorbed CO2? I need to change out the soda lime in our machines and you're welcome to the used stuff.

I'm pretty sure the used stuff isn't soda lime anymore, as it's absorbed (and reacted with) CO2 to become something else.

Yes unfortunately, I can't use it if it has been used it has to be fresh. I don't mind buying the stuff I just don't need 36 pounds of it. I need about 5-8 pounds.
