    Pretty much. You can't really get an accurate pH test until the chlorine level is down below 10.

    They are going to want the CH numbers also to see if you were in a scaling condition.

    You need to keep shocking until

    CC is 0.5 or lower;
    An overnight FC loss test shows a loss of 1.0 ppm or less;
    And the water is clear.
