bought a house with a 20x40 inground pool. the pool has not been used in 2 years. no cover for a while looks like plants were growing in it. Do i need to drain pool and clean it or is there something i can use to clean it without draining it???

If the pool hasnt been used in two years, chances are it is going to need to be drained and cleaned. Staining on the plaster surface will likely be extremely heavy and all the organic matter that has dissolved in the pool will cause the pool to have an extremely high TDS level and a desire to feed algae blooms.
