    Hi, like I said I just bought a new 12x30 intex frame round.
    I bought
    1-the pool
    2-test kit from walmart HTH
    3- thermometer,
    4- kem-tek 1-inch chlorinating tablets,
    5- kem tek hp minus,
    6- kem tek hp riser,
    7- kem tek algaecide and clarifier,
    8- ken tek alkalinity booster
    I also have the pump filter that came with the pool and the skimmer.
    I read a lot, but I want to make sure what I have to do to start ok from the beginning before fill the pool.
    Thanks you all for the help!!!

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    Congrats on getting a pool, but save yourself some money:
    Return items 5-8. No reason to buy anything until you know you will need it. Why would you need to both raise and lower the pH? And you can use cheaper chemicals to do it.

    Ideally you would not use Item 4 either.

    How much Pool School have you read? Start with these:
    ABCs of Water Chemistry
    Recommended Pool Chemicals
    How to Chlorinate Your Pool
