Adding 6 lbs. of stabilizer (it is not solid, but granular) will add about 35ppm of CYA. So, if you plan to use the trichlor tabs, that will give you some room to add additional CYA via tabs. In your pool, each gallon (4 qts.) of 6% bleach will add about 2.5ppm of chlorine. Use that as a reference to help you figure out how much bleach to add each time you test. Try and test 2 or 3 times per day and each time raise the chlorine level back up. With a fresh fill and no stabilizer yet, I would say take your chlorine level up to about 10-12ppm and try and hold it there as best you can. You want to maintain the high chlorine reading until you can go from sundown one evening until within two hours of sunrise the next day without losing more than 1ppm of chlorine.
Go ahead and order the Taylor K-2006 kit through the test kit link in my signature below. It is only available online. So, you'll need something to use until it arrives. See if your Walmart has a HTH 6-Way kit (NOT test strips) or at the very least, an OTO/Phenol Red kit (yellow and red drops.) Both of these kits only test chlorine levels up to 5ppm but you can force it to read higher with a dilution method explained here: Testing Without a Good Kit You do lose accuracy with dilution, but it is better than nothing until you can get the good kit delivered.
Post some numbers for us when you get a kit and tell us what kind of kit you bought.
