See the Pool School, especially the Beginners Guide for Seasonal/Temporary Pools. You can use The Pool Calculator to calculate dosing. You'll need to add some stabilizer/conditioner (Cyanuric Acid, CYA) to the pool first, but can do that by using Dichlor initially as described in the beginner's guide.
