I made the run to Costco yesterday (Sunday) for the bleach. Just picked up 8 large jugs. Two 182oz jugs for $5.54. Ran by the pool store for a Taylor K-2006 but they were closed. I began last night to take advantage of the evening.
2100- Add first bleach, 2.8gallons (two jugs)
2230- 2 jugs
2345- 1 jug
This morning the pool looked like a PHMB pool. Just a little cloudy. No color.
0800- 2 jugs
0930- 1 jug
out of bleach and off to the pool store for the test kit.

RETEST with a 10ml 1/2 diluted test at 1545
At this point, I'm not sure if my test was off or if I've added too much bleach. My bad for not testing each and every time. It took 54 drops of 0871 at the 10ml level. I'll test again in another hour.
History of the pool. I opened the pool last year in Aug. Added Soft Swim PHMB. Closed the pool in Sept for the winter. I opened the pool in June this year. The pool has had 32 oz of PHMB (Soft Swim B) and 6 gallons of H2O2 added this year. As of yesterday, all the PHMB chemicals were low. Is it safe to assume I don't have a large build up of chemicals in the pool?
