Raise the PH up to at least 7.2 before continuing to shock the pool.

Your wording suggests to me that you didn't read what I posted. Shocking is an ongoing process that continues until you are done. It is not something you do once and then do again. Please read the link I gave you in the previous post. It explains the whole process.
