I am having the exact same problem with my pool after I opened it. I showed no FC in the pool and the cc was showing at like 7.5 so I started the shock setting at 24 in the calculator because that is what the chart said with the CYA at 60 like my pool was. it was a 7.4 ph. have been putting bleach to try and keep it at 24 but it is not staying there and the CC numbers have climbed to 14 or 15. Now I am working on it on the half hour to try and rid the CCs from the pool. When I test for the FC levels now I do it just as the instructions state, put the heaping scoop of the power in the 10ml and use the stir to mix it, it turns pink but not a dark pink, then I drop one at a time the 871 until it turns clear. the problem is it turns clear then it slowly shades back to pink. I add another drop does the same thing, up to like 30 drops then I stopped. I added the 003 reagent and it still showing CCs Am I doing something wrong?
