I was just comparing phosphate free products. I usually pay 40 for 2L. I decided to shop smarter and possibly buy products online. When I searched Phosphate free Walmart had it for 21.00 same amount and by the same company. My question is, do I have to buy the most expensive chlorine tabs, liquid Chlorine, algaecide and phosphate free ?

Don't worry about phosphates as they are only a problem when your chlorine/CYA levels aren't correct
Check out these links they will help you understand the relative levels for your pool
