    Shocking a pool using granules

    I need to shock our pool and have some granules left although we are using the bbb method. Do the granules contain a stabiliser? I don't want to raise the CYA level any more.

    Welcome to TFP.

    What are the ingredients of the granules? Some have stabilizer and some don't.

    Thanks for the info and welcome. Unfortunately the granules are Dichlor- so I won't be using them! I'll have to donate them to someone who has low CYA or keep them for another year.... If they last. Anyone know the shelf life of Dichlor granules?

    If kept dry, likely many years.
