    Well, if it needs adjusting, you do PH first. The relationship between PH/TA is complex and can be overwhelming... can make you lose focus, usually the TA can wait unless its insanely low.

    What is your issue, exactly? How does your water look?

    Can you post a full set of results?

    Are you following the shock process with one of the recommended test kits?

    If your CYA is truely 0pp, then the sun is likely consuming a LOT of the chlorine you are adding.

    Please stop with all the capital letters ... it is too hard to read ... and considered shouting and rude on the internet.

    You are not properly following the shock process ... re-read the links in my post above.
