I finally got tired of trying to do my own research, which includes manufacturer's websites, and just bought the products I needed at Costco. But I still want to know precisely what I'm putting in my pool.
3" tabs --- 40 lbs = $85 -- or about $10 more than the TriChor tabs without the Plus

Shock Plus --- 24 1 lb packs = about $52

I do like the idea of swimming within 15 minutes after shocking the pool, assuming this is correct.
Both products claim to have, I think:
But, what chems, and how much? Strange there isn't a requirement to list what's inside.
I haven't opened the tabs yet, so, I'll wait to see what answers are out there. The shock isn't a bad price, so, I will probably use it.
FYI --- I did use 50# of PoolLife tabs and a case of shock..... I was "shocked to learn" that there was indeed a difference --- This brand seems to keep the shock granularized better, perfect in fact, all the way to the last bag, and the tabs seemed to be better made than some I've used before. Is this "Just my 'magination"?
