Question Virgin pool owner

I just put up a pool 15 feet wide by 3 feet deep. I know I need chemicals but I have no idea where to even start. Help?

Welcome to the forums!

Do you have an instruction manual with the pool?

The 2 main things is keeping the chlorine level at a correct level and adding algaecide every week. Some pools have a spot at the filter for chlorine tablets but if it's like the cheap one I have - your basically stuck using a floating tablet holder.
A test kit will help you keep track of the chlorine and ph levels.

You will also want to shock the pool once a week or so. It boosts the chlorine and probably does more than I'm smart enough to tell

I'm sure one of the pool guys will be around later with better info
