    Does this product contain stabilized chlorine?

    Does anyone know whether this In the Swim pool shock (link below) is stabilized or unstabilized?

    http://www.intheswim.com/p/pool-shoc...p-tab|pdp-tab2

    The former owner of my home left behind about 10 bags of this product. It is Cal Hypo, which isn't ideal, but my CH level is manageable right now (110 ppm), so I'm hesitantly willing to take a little more calcium to save some money by using this for my next SLAM. My main concern is CYA. If this product is stabilized, I don't want to use it. As we speak I'm replacing water to fix a high CYA level.

    The only thing I can find on that page is one reviewer who said they like that it won't raise CYA levels and a description on the bag that says "it won't overstabilize your pool." But it's not very upfront about whether its stabilized.

    Forgive me if this is an obvious question. I'm new here, though the Pool School has taught me a ton.

    You are correct in that it will raise your CH level, as long as you know that your good

    Use the bottom of pool math (after entering volume) to calculate how much FC and how much CH it will add.

    Great. Thank you for confirming that. I'll use Pool Math to see how much CH it will add and make a determination if its worth it.
