    Default Do I need Shock ???

    I went to WalMart and bought all the BBB stuff
    and the Stabilizer as well. For some reason I also bought the
    Shock stuff too. Do I even need it????

    thanks Sissy

    Nope. One of the B's in BBB is used to shock. That would be the bleach.

    You can either take it back, or use it--provided your Calcium (if it's cal-hypo) or CYA (if it's dichlor) aren't already too high. But bleach is fine either way.
