    New to BBB Method. Need some help.

    Hi! These are my readings using the K2006:

    FC 4.5
    CC 2.0
    PH 7.2
    TA 90
    CH 390
    CYA 150

    I am going to drain and refill to get the CYA down. Should I do that first or should I shock first to get the CC down?

    Thank you!!!

    My pool is AG 15300 Gallons

    Welcome to TFP.

    I would drain first and then start the shock process.

    If you have an above-ground pool, drain only in increments. By doing too much at a time, you run the risk of getting wrinkles in your liner.

    Thanks. I am draining only about 6 inches at a time. (Just to the bottom of the skimmer) I have drained about 21 inches so far, I am going to test again before I drain anymore.
