    Been here for a little while but just starting BBB.

    FC: ~1.0
    pH: ~6.6
    TA: 110
    CYA: 55

    My TFTestkit said to add drops of a solution "until it turns red". It started getting slightly red at 11 drops and more substantially red at 12 (120TA).

    I just bought quite a lot of B, B, and B (8.25% sodium hypochlorite). At this point, about how much should I add of these?

    Have you used the pool calc ? You need to get some bleach in there ASAP or you know what your heading for. Did you do the CC test ? Then Tackle the low PH. 7.2-7.8 for the PH.

    TC: ~1.0 (by orthotolidine test)
    FC: 28 (taken after TC and after adding 3gal bleach to skimmer, so may be invalid)
    CC: 0 "" ""
    pH: ~6.6
    TA: 110
    CYA: 55

    I should probably repost once the bleach has circulated. I also added 4 boxes of Borax (all I had). Thank you for the response so far, but y numbers are now so suspect (due to my timing) that I'll probably repost results once things have settled.

    Good job !! We'll see what the numbers say later. They'll tell the story.
