Welcome to TFP, the best place for no more draining due to high CYA!

Number 1 will be ordering a good quality test kit. The only 2 that we recommend are the TF100 and the Taylor K-2006. Next you need to do some reading in pool school. Start here Pool School - ABCs of Pool Water Chemistry then here Pool School - Recommended Pool Chemicals

lastly, play around with pool math link at top.

Ask any other questions that you have here.
