This will be our second year with our pool (24x48 intex with 1hp pump & sand filter) & I am clueless when it comes to taking care of it. I did get by with it not getting completely yucky last year but it never was sparkling blue either. I am going to drain it next weekend, scrub it down and start from scratch. I guess my main question(s) are, to start it up what chemicals will I need on hand, how much of each & what about stabilizer? Also what goes in first, stabilizer or bleach?
