Yes; mix the shock with water and pour it into the pool directly in several locations and run the filter.
Yes you can add shock solution to your swimming pool after or at the same time as a clarifyer. You should not swim in your pool for at 4 hours after shocking it.
I use the Intex pool startup kit. It has sanitizer, pool test strips and shock. Add Sanitize which is granular chlorine. If you have a pool brush, brush pool. I actually use a mop. If its really dirty you may have to get inside pool to mop, in which case add Sanitize after. Then run filter for 20 minutes and use test strip to check pH & alkilinity. If not right pH add another dose (booklet in kit says how much per 500 gals of water)and run filter another 20 min. Then add Shock and run filter 4-8hrs. If you don't have a filter, then you probably have to drain, clean with regular liquid bleach & mop then refill.
Yes you can the muriati acid is used to get the pools pH to between 7.2 and 7.6 then you can add the pool shock as per the instructions.
Add clarifier, available at your local pool supply.
what time of the day should i sock my pool
go to your local dealer and purchase a bag of pool shock in one hour it will be clear again If your controller has a Shock or Super Chlorinate setting then put it in super chlorinate and run the filter. You should also add sone algeacide and maintain it.
You can't! Muriatic acid (~32% HCL) will not add any free chlorine to the pool and will not function as a oxidizer (Shock).
