Now that the summer has passed and I have some experience with this product I feel I can give an honest assessment. It works. The fine granules dissolve much better than other formulations at 68% or less available chlorine, and it has killed and oxidized anything I've ever found in my pool. Figuring the cost per unit of available chlorine shows that this product is cheaper even though it's priced higher. And you use less of it. Recommend that for maximum effect, powder shock should be broadcast

Had a green pool, used this and it finally cleared up. It took several days, lots of vacuuming, and the vinyl liner got bleached in some places.

Like this much better than regular shock!
I like the super pool shock much better than the regular pool shock. The super pool shock dissolves much more quickly and does not require mixing prior to adding to the pool. Also, since a bag of this treats 15k gallons vs. 10k gallons for regular pool shock, I can treat my 30k gallon pool with 2 bags of super pool shock instead of 3 of regular shock. Keep that in mind when you are pricing them out.
Quickly cleared our pool water color. Works great!!!

The challanges of keeping it safe and clean change often, but I can rely on In-The-Swim to solve my problems, and have the needed supplies here quickly and at a great price. I feel confident in In-The-Swim as my resource for all my needs.

I have use this Lithium pool shock since I purchased the pool 8 years ago. I use it as shock and daily clorination. My liner still looks great. I know others who had the pools for less time and bleached their liners with cheaper product.This product disolves very quickly clears any cloudy water fast. Once again shipping fast & free.

I purchased this product after reading all of the other reviews. I'm glad I made the decision to purchase the Lithium Pool Shock. This is the first year my husband and I have owned a pool and we've spent a great deal of money on chemicals to clear up our cloudy pool. This product cleared up our pool within 2 hours. You will spend less money overall if you start out with this product first. No cloudy residue; dissolves quickly; fast acting;

As a "Super Shock" user for 9 years, I must admit I had no idea anything could be better...but this is it. I hesitated on the price at first but gave it a whirl based on other reviews.It will end up costing much less because I use half compared to the shock.
In the nine years I've own the pool I have never seen water so clear..mirror finish!
I'm hooked! Algae after rain on a hot day was normal...no more...perfect!
I had a brand new pool that had been filled for five days, and didn't have any circulation or filtration. Things were starting to get cloudy and a little green (quick). Once I had the filtration system online, I dosed the water according to instructions, and the water cleared up quick.

I've been very happy since I stopped using liquid chlorine. The large order comes in individually sealed packages which I can get into the pool without spilling.

Great dissolving product
This is my first year of using In the Swim products. I found it difficult to find my local pool store open at a time convenient for ME. I was dissatisfied with the products from my local mass discount store even though their hours suited me perfectly. Ah, the great solution-an internet pool store. I have been pleased with the way the products, especially the shock works in our pool. I like the way it dissolves. (Not all shocks do this!) And who can beat the convenience? Order one day and receive
