Pool was brushed daily during wash, then drained, brushed again using water only & cleaned then Refilled water tested - yesteday
FC 0
pH 7.8-8.0
TA 110
CH 110
CYA 0

I added 4lbs CYA (96%), 16 oz acid & 60 oz chlorine, tested 24 hrs later - today
FC 6.0
pH 7.4
TA 110
CH 120
CYA- no test
Pool Temp 70

Should I leave the CH alone? Last season it climbed at a rate of about 25 per month

Yes, leave the CH alone and maintain a TA on the higher side of the recommended levels to compensate until you CH rises to a more normal level.
