First, thank you as a community helping each other and inviting me in. So, just opened the pool day before yesterday. Circulated the new/old water for a day, removed all the worms and then yesterday morning, guessing that the cya was at the lower range, poured 330 oz. of 8.25% bleach as suggested from the pool calculator for slaming @ FC-10. Latter in the day tested the water chemically speaking. Tested all myself with kit except for the exact FC and CC because I have the DPD type test, .5-5 scale, and I know I was above that. So I went to pool store for testing as well.
CC=0.8(calculated from above store test results)
I added 55oz. of washing soda to elevate Ph last evening.
Test this morning with my kit showed
FC and TC=>5
Water is crystal clear.
Not sure why TA rose. Yesterday the results I was able to ascertain from my kit matched the store test. Testing Ph throughout the day today stayed >5. I will take sample to store tomorrow for retesting and purchase a more precise Chlorine test.
So my question is how does this look? I know for reading in here that CH is lower than "ideal". My CYA was higher
