The plaster dust is under control and brushing continues. I am adding bleach by hand, the liquidator is not online yet.

ch 225 or 250 or 275?
I am using Taylor K-2006 and testing CH with a 10mL sample. My water looks more pink than red before adding R-0011L then it turns purple when hitting drop 9, more blue-ish after drop 10, and more blue-ish after drop 11, then stays that color. Drops 9,10,11 get me to 225, 250 or 275 CH.
Any advice on how I should read this?
Should I adjust CH up to 300?
In order to get TA down to 70, I intend to keep driving the PH down to 7.0 and let it rise naturally as the plaster cures, but will this process take too long? Should I aerate to drive the PH back up more quickly?
I added bleach to bring fc up to 2.0 just after this test. I need to start adding CYA as soon as I have cleaned and recharged the filter. The pool store CYA is expensive but the big box store CYA from HTH is relatively cheap. (96% CYA, 4% other ingredients)
Is it OK to use the HTH brand or is there a reason to spring for the pool store granules? I would like to use the liquid but its pricey.
