I have cal hypo and dichlor
You can use either one, but "DO NOT" mix them together as they will explode if you do.

You can alternate which one you use, but do not add both at the same time.

Make sure that you are brushing well.

ok thanks. I can't get any liquid Cl right now (all sold out) - should I use cal hypo or dichol?
I checked the Ocean State Job Lot 12 miles from the city you show as your location. Liquid Shock is in stock.

If you use a bucket to mix the chemicals, make sure that the bucket is perfectly clean before adding any chemical.

Even residue from a previous mix can have bad reactions.

I used Natural Chemistry's Metal Free. I can't get my hands on any liquid Cl right now. It's sold out in all of the pool stores in my area. I have cal hypo and dichlor
Leslie's in the shopping center @ sproul rd and state rd in Springfield has 12.5% liquid shock in 4 packs for a reasonable price (like $22-$24)
