Hi everyone been lurking for a couple of weeks learning alot.
Started pool up about 3 weeks ago, Alk was 300, followed your instructions to lower I got it down to 200.
For the past week everything has been staying pretty steady except for a lot of pollen, PH hasnt moved from 7.4 even with some rain. Should I continue to lower the Alk or leave it alone for now and work on my other numbers.

FC - 3
CC - 0
TC - 3
pH - 7.4
TA - 200
CH - 200
CYA - 20
TEMP - 69F

As long as your PH isn't going up to quickly and you don't have calcium scaling issues, not worrying about TA is fine. When the PH goes up, lower it and don't intentionally raise TA, and eventually it will be lower.
