    Non-chlroine shock...use it or toss it?

    While trying to finish up cleaning the pool for closure I went through the chemicals that came with the pool. We have a box of "winterizer" chemicals. It includes non-chlorine shock and algecide. Is it worth using this, or just doing the bleach shock before closing?

    If you can list the active ingredients on the algaecide or the brand name, product name that would be helpful. Most likely you don't need either if closing when the pool temp is solidly below 60. The non-chlorine shock has it's uses but is not needed for winterizing.

    What is non-chlorine shock? I just went to Leslie's site but I don't see a list of ingredients there.

    Usually, non-chlorine shock is monopersulfate or MPS.
