Hello, First I would find out when it was drained last and who did the service on the pool. I personally drain a very large inground pool once a year. Chemicals are fine but it comes to a point they break down and you have more chemical then water which is not great on your skin. What I did learn the hard way was I use my house bib which was connected to my water softener so the first fill was expensive. So make sure it connect to outside water bib. But we used our pool every day it was large and we had a lot of kids over. They have pool kits that are very easy to use at your local pool store. But you also have to buy all the supplies which will cost you a lot. or you can get a reasonable service for a monthly fee that saves you time and money on supplies, and service. I would research both, and shop around. And, personal I would drain the pool wash it down and start fresh. Again I don't swim in your toilet and I don't like people peeing in my pool but they tend to do so young and old.
