Is Advanced Pool & Spa compatible with other chemicals?

Mixing any chemicals can result in unfavorable results. It is always best to ask a trusted pool store associate or call the product’s manufacturer before combining chemicals. Here are a couple of rules to live by: 1) Never pour chemicals together in the same container, 2) Never add water to chemicals, instead add chemicals to water, 3) Never add chemicals to your pool close to the surface at the same location time after time. It’s best to “take a walk” with your chemical applications and never allow them to contact skin or pool surfaces directly.
