we usually buy the other brand in the orange box, but decided to get this because it was cheaper. My husband learned from a friend to put your desired amount of the bag into a 5 gallon bucket, stir it, and then dump it into the pool. We tried it with this brand, and it wouldn't dissolve. It bleached out the bottom of my pool. With the other brand, this procedure worked perfectly. I tried this brand again, waiting until the water in the hose got hot, to see if it would dissolve faster. No such luck. I left it in the 5 gallon bucket, poured boiling water into the mix, and it still took about 2 hours to dissolve. The product may be cheaper, but not when you have to replace your pool/liner, because the shock destroyed it! Stick with the stuff in the orange box. We've never had problems with it. I plan on calling pool essentials and let them know
