    Welcome to the forum

    Can you give a little clearer idea of what you're looking to do ?? What level of CYA are you trying to achieve ?? Why your FC is so high ??

    I believe I want 30 to 50 CYA levels and my FC if so high cuz i was using pucks

    My CH is high as well. I now have staining and will probably have to drain and acid wash.

    I can't find my clearout line/residential sewer line to drain water though, not sure i have one???

    FC will drop slowly on its own, but the only way to lower CH and CYA is to replace water. How high is the CH in your fill water? If you do several drains instead of one big one, is draining into the yard an option?

    Also, please put all of your pool and equipment info in your signature. It will help to fill in the gaps when answering your questions.
