    Liqued shock vs Pool Time Shock Xtra Blue 6 in one powder

    After testing my pool this morning, Im showing no yellow at all in the test kit. So I dumpted a gallon of shock in like I always do, but its still low. I went to Home Depo and they had no liqued shock but had one pound pacages of Pool Time Shock Xtra Blue 6 in 1. My Pool is above ground 30 X 15 and was going to dump two in. what do you think?
    I never used powder before always liqued.
    Thanks
    Lenny

    Its Dichlor with copper sulphate.

    We don't like adding metals.

    If your pool is chronically low on FC, either you're not balanced or you keep forgetting to put in fresh tabs.

    For us to give you correct advice you need to post a full set of test results.

    The so called shock you have is Dichlor with copper in it. I wouldn't use it. I'd take it back and use bleach.

    If you don't have a good test kit now would be a good time to order one.

    I made an error! I knew something was wrong. My pools fine! When I tested I used the wrong drops. I used chorine neutralizer
    I guess I had a few to many vodkas last night...
    Thanks for the replys.
    Since I already have those (only 2, 1 pounders)
    You think it would be okay to use them instead of the gallons just those two? I hate returning things.
    Thanks again

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
