Hi - I’m just getting started. My FC is really high from shocking (was green) and CYA is low. I’m trying to get on the program. Should I wait for the FC to come down and simultaneously boost the CYA with conditioner? Thanks so much!

If it helps, this is a 18’ intex pool.

Thanks so much!

Your advice has been very helpful! I have everything in a good spot. My question now is how do I calculate how much bleach to add to my pool on a daily basis (or other interval)? Or should I use the daily Chlorine test (yellow drops) to determine my FC and then use the Pool Math App's bleach addition suggestion? The latter feel more reactive and I'd prefer to be proactive. Thanks!
