    What to do first..?

    I have had a pretty good leak, and my chemical readings have been low. (It may be repaired - won't know for a few days.) Here is what I've got right now:

    PH - 7.8
    FC - 1.5
    CC - 0
    TC - 1.5
    TA - 90
    CH - 270
    CYA - 40
    SALT - 2250 (been using bleach because of the cold weather..)

    I entered everything in the PC, and there are several things to add.. Does it matter which order I add them?

    Thank you in advance!

    Chlorine is the priority, everything else can wait a few days (or more).

    As Jason said, fix your FC first in your case. Then If PH is completely out of range fix that, unless FC is above 10 in which case you ignore it. Then CYA, then TA, then CA, and finally borates and salt.
