I added 41 oz of 8.25% bleach last night which according to pool calculator should raise FC to 2.0 from zero. This morning I did the chlorine test on a 25ml sample and even after adding six scoops of powder the water still won't turn pink. The other thing is that the powder just sorts clumps into the bottom of the tube no matter how much I swirl or shake.
I should add that at the same time the bleach was added, a gallon of acid was added, and 4 lbs stabilizer was added to the skimmer. The aerator and pump have been running all night
