    Welcome to TFP!

    Take a moment and relax. Everything is going to work out just fine.

    The 1000gph pump/filter is not very good, though many people get by with it. The 2500 gph pump/filter is far better.

    There are a couple of different ways to take care of the chemicals. The simplest is to start with out seasonal pool instructions in Pool School. If you don't mind a little more complexity, your pool is large enough to justify the regular treatment (BBB method) of pool care. There are lots of instruction on that in Pool School as well.
