    Learning to keep my mouth shut at the pool store.

    I'm a gadget guy. I was at a pool store today just looking around, and overheard a conversation between a pool owner and the guy selling her chemicals. It was tough not speaking up.

    Any one else have this problem?

    A lady in pool store looking for "shock" treatment and not wanting to add any more stabilizer to her pool...she picks up the calcium hypochlorite "shock" and pool store employees states: "That has stabilizer, you want liquid chlorine".

    Its one of the reasons I avoid the PS. Very difficult for me not to argue there.
