    HELP! What should I handle first? High TA, PH, CC?

    here are my readings

    FC 1.2
    CC 5
    PH 7.8
    TA 325
    CH 200
    CYA 20-30 (barely any, new fill - only dumped dichlor 3kg in it since start)

    please advise what should I work on first, TA, and PH, and then add more Dichlor to get my CYA up?

    You biggest problem is the high CC ... that would point to requiring the Shocking Your Pool PROCESS

    Before starting that, you should lower the pH to the lower 7s and your CYA target should be around 30ppm.

    TA is high, but that is way down on the priority list.

    Do not aerate to raise the pH. You want it on the low end of the range to start the shock process.

    After you complete the shock process, then you can start aerating to allow you to work on lowering the TA.
