    What to do next?

    Here are my latest test results after draining and refilling my pool by 50% twice.

    FC 1.5
    CC 0.5
    TC 2.0
    pH 7.2
    TA 70
    CH 130
    CYA 80
    Temp 84

    I'm guessing I should drain and refill about half the pool again to get the CYA down to normal range, but I figured I should ask.

    Should I add bleach to get the FC up before I do that or is it a waste if I am just draining water?

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    You are correct, you have another drain to go. Don't add bleach if you are draining. Add it right when you start filling again.

    Thanks. I am draining now. When I get the CYA down to the correct level, what should I correct for next? FC, pH, or TA?

    I would add a gallon of bleach when you start filling.

    just like Robbie said.
