I tried to cheat, now I pay the price.
Essentially I was doing fine about 4-5 days in with a DE filter, beat the algae battle and was trying to rush opening by a few days. FC was fine overnight and I was going after the "dust" in the water.
I added 2 gallons of Swimsoft C, clarifier which has helped elminate the "long tail" effects to get to crystal clear water yesterday. It did the trick. The water looks pristine and I'm just vacuuming up small white particles, which are essentially gone.
The problem is that now I cannot get Chlorine (liquid 6% bleach) to take. I have attempted to add a full 182 oz bottle and within 10 mins, FC and CC is essentially zero.
I have attempted (using the poolcalculator) to go to 10ppm and 15ppm levels (which are shock levels) and the chlorine just vaporizes.
I suspect that I have too much clarifier, it's combining with the chlorine and it's gone. So now I don't know if I wait for the clarifier to burn off (days?) or if I go crazy on the Chlorine?
The water is crystal clear, Filter is running nice and strong. everyone is clamoring to go swimming, but I won't release them until I can re-stabalize the FC/CC.
