Question Where the heck can I find Pool Filter Media gravel??

I called four hardware stores, and four pool supply places today and even the big monster stores (Watson's, Lowes, Home Depot) didn't have the 2-3 mm gravel supposedly used to filter swimming pools. I am new to this (6 months) and not a member anywhere. I'd like to come to the GCAS auction Sunday in Loveland. I am upgrading a Walstad style Natural Planted Tank and need gravel smaller than the usual aquarium gravel, but larger than sand, which won't have a big effect on my pH. I also need MT Snails, duckweed (don't laugh!) and maybe a few more fast growing plants. I'm trying to figure if is gas to this auction would be cheaper than shipping, if I could get this stuff there, as I'm not ready to buy fish yet. Thanks for any help. I live between Dayton and Cincinnati. I need to know:
1)Where I can get pool filter media?
2) Will the Loveland auction be open to me as a non-member?
3)Is the auction likely to have lowly duckweed and MTS?
