I have always dissolved the shock in a bucket and then poured it into the pool at the inlet so it gets well spread in the pool. I really don't like granules laying aroud on my pool liner. (21 ft round above gound pool.)
My wife just bought a box of HTH Super Shock-It. The instructions for use say "broadcast" directly into the pool and NOT to dissolve first.
There are several warnings on the package but I still want to dissolve it first. Is it really dangerous to put it into a bucket?
