Sodium Bisulfate Biocide

Does anyone know a good source for the chemical that I need for pickling my water maker? It uses sodium bisulfate crystals which get dissolved in water, it seems to be quite a common chemical used in the food industry. Not sure where to find it. My local wine maker supply store has potassium metabisulfate but my instinct is to stay with the chemical that has kept the water maker running well for the last 10 years or so.

I noticed the spectra water maker uses a proprietary biocide as there water makers have parts that will degrade in the presence of sodium bisulfate.
