Ducks in my pool

Let me preface this by saying I’ve been a pool owner for a week and 2 days. Also been a home owner for that long. I made a rookie mistake. Put the hose in the pool to top it off (my pool gets 8-9 hrs of direct sunlight a day) and forgot about it. For 8 hours overnight. Roughly 2200 gallons of water ran into (and out) of my pool from my well. I have a AGP 24’ round, ~ 13500-14000 gallons. I found this forum and have done everthing I can since yesterday morning at 4 am. So here were my numbers as of 10 am 7/06
FC: .5
PH: below 6.8
TA: 10
TC: have not tested.
CYA: <30
CC has remained at 0

I’ve added 181 fl oz of 6% bleach
3 lbs of stabilizer (sock method)
2 lbs 12 oz soda ash
Readings as of 7/07 at 930 pm
FC: 3
CC: 0
PH: 7.0
TA: 30
CYA: 30
CH: 110

I just want to make sure everything is ok. I feel like ducks shouldn’t be eating things from my pool. Hope I gave enough info!

Welcome to the forum!
Good job! What kit are you using? Add it to your signature when you fill it out.
How does your water look?
I say maintain your FC based on FC/CYA Chart for a few days and see how the other parameters balance out.
I suggest you read ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry and consider reviewing the entire Pool School eBook.

No problem. TC is meaningless anyway -- no need to type it out.
