    HTH Shock N Swim is 45% cal-hypo. Super Shock N Swim is 53% cal-hypo. The super version has almost 18% more chlorine per bag.

    Other than the BBB method for shocking, using these 1 lb bags is good or bad? Any certain brands to stay away from?

    It depends on your levels. If your CH is high, avoid it. Otherwise it's okay to use... for shocking, etc. I've not heard of any specific brands to avoid.
