    Hello and welcome to TFP! We're happy to have you with us. Since your pool appears to be a fairly small one for the grandkids, please take a look at this link:Pool School - Guide for Seasonal/Temporary Pools

    It is designed specifically for those small pools and to give owners an idea what they need to do to maintain it. Once you read it, if you have any more questions, just let us know. Thanks for visiting, and have a great day.

    Welcome to TFP!!!!

    I agree with the above, take a look at that article. It is not likely that you will ever need that borax or baking soda for your pool. Return it or take it to the laundry room.

    Have you discovered Pool School yet? These should help with your understanding:
