well the small buckets weigh in at 48 lbs and they treat like 100ish gallons ??? so that bag weighs 1920 lbs if my calculations are correct, excluding the pallet it is on.

Sea World, I believe, pumps in ocean water and filters/treats it prior to dumping it into their systems. Much cheaper in the long run than making RO/DI water and adding salt.
