Adding chemicals at the same time?

I know you can't add muriatic acid with other chemicals so I'm wondering how long after adding MA do you need to wait to add other chemicals? And also not counting MA can you add other chemicals at the same time like bleach and stabilizer? If not how long should you wait between those two?

Thanks

Only issue is adding acid and chlorine at the same time. Space those by 15 minutes or so, pump running. The rest of things you might add can be added simultaneously.

Also what is calcium chloride? It says I need to add some of that and I don't think I ever needed that last year so I don't know what it is or where to get it.

No you don't, you have a vinyl liner pool. There is no recommended level for CH on the low side.
