    should i use stabilizer or dichlor?

    Just filled pool yesterday and I am following the setup instructions for "Seasonal/Temporary Pools". I believe our math may have been wrong when trying to figure out how much Dichlor to add for the first night, it seems like the chlorine level is too high. Our Total Chlorine level is at 10 and the Free Chlorine level is at 10. Should I switch to adding a stabilizer tonight instead of the Dichlor? I'm worried about too much chlorine in the water. (The pH is at 7.0)
    I have an Intex 10' x 30" pool
    first time doing this pool stuff...wish I paid more attention in Chemistry class!!

    How much did you add? Do you have stabilizer on hand already?
