    What should I do first? Everything needs to be raised.

    Hi Guys,
    We have been having crazy weather here in Louisiana so my readings are going crazy as well. Tested my pool after LOTS AND LOTS of rain and all my levels need to be raised. My questions is which do I do first?

    FC=1
    PH=7.2
    TA=50
    CH=160
    CYA=50
    SALT-3670

    I've entered all my readings in pool calculator and know that I can add calcium chloride and it will raise my CH, Bleach will raise my FC, and baking soda will raise my TA and PH. I just don't know which one I should do first or if it matters.

    Thanks for listening

    The only thing you really need to raise is the FC as it is now too low.
    There is no real reason to raise the CH for a FG pool, so that is not critical.

    I would do the FC and then the TA (only up to 70-80ppm) and call it a day

    One more, need to raise CYA to 70-80 since you have SWG. Put it in a sock and hang in front of a return or throw it in the skimmer basket. Give it a squeeze a few times a day to help it dissolve faster. Don't add more or retest CYA for a week.
