Get cyranic acid.

It's also called stabilizer/conditioner.

Or you can use a stabilized source of chlorine for a while -- slow-dissolving Trichlor pucks/tabs or fast-dissolving Dichlor powder/graunules. For every 1 ppm Free Chlorine (FC) you add with Trichlor, you also get 0.6 ppm CYA. For every 1 ppm FC you add with Dichlor, you also get 0.9 ppm CYA.
