    Filled pool with fresh water -- how to add chemicals

    Over winter and spring we lost most of the pool water out of our 24' round above ground pool because of a leak in the vinyl liner. Only a feet of water was left in the pool as the hole was at the bottom of the pool.

    Since then i have identified and patched the leak and am filling it back with water. I am relatively new to maintaining a pool. I need some advice on how to go about adding chemicals to the pool before we can start using it.

    Which chemicals should be added first ? Any guidance is most welcome.

    I have the test kit recommended in this web site.
