Re: How/What chemicals to use in pool...
It would also be good to test your fill water with the drops based test kit and post the results here prior to filling your pool. That way someone let you know what your numbers look like and give you some pointers as to what you're likely going to have to put in first (beside bleach). Are you filling from a well or city water?
