    Builder did no drain acid wash... suggestions on readings

    Pool was brushed daily during wash, then drained, brushed again using water only & cleaned then Refilled water tested - yesteday
    FC 0
    pH 7.8-8.0
    TA 110
    CH 110
    CYA 0

    I added 4lbs CYA (96%), 16 oz acid & 60 oz chlorine, tested 24 hrs later - today
    FC 6.0
    pH 7.4
    TA 110
    CH 120
    CYA- no test
    Pool Temp 70

    Should I leave the CH alone? Last season it climbed at a rate of about 25 per month

    Yes, leave the CH alone and maintain a TA on the higher side of the recommended levels to compensate until you CH rises to a more normal level.
