Bleach is at the center of those who follow the BBB Method of Swimming Pool Care. There are several forums that preach Bleach, Borax and Baking Soda as the primary chemicals you will need to balance and maintain a sparkling blue pool. I fully endorse this as being true.
The most popular forum Troublefreepool.com preaches this method religiously – this is the site I would recommend to go to if you want to just use the BBB method for your pool (using household products only). Troublefreepool.com offers many great tips and advice. They banned me at one time but I have been reinstated so I frequently will post on this forum.
Other notable sites are:

Can you use a modified version and use other sanitizers rather than Clorox bleach. You can but you need to know about the pros and cons of the other chemicals which are many and varied. Here are some videos to get you started on learning about the other chlorine types:

You also must have the right level of Conditioner/Stabilizer/Cyanuric Acid all used interchangeably to describe the same thing. Here is some more information about that:

Most people will need a little help before they can get there so I have included in the write up a description of some Algaecides (which don’t fit in to the BBB method but are needed nonetheless).
If your pool has been neglected for some time and has green or yellow (mustard algae) you will need the aid of an algaecide — I use this term loosely as only one on this list is an actual pesticide. The other three are algaecides in that they destroy algae but with a different method than a poison.
Sodium Bromide NaBr:
A salt of Bromine that kills algae by creating a Bromine bank in your pool. When added to the pool it changes it to a Bromine pool. You must keep the chlorine level high to be effective.

Is a monochlotamine which is produced by using ammonia – so you need to keep the
chlorine level really high or you will have bad results

Copper Based Algaecides:
Uses copper to kill the algae –the amount of copper actually in the product is vague. I called and talked to a chemist myself and I still couldn’t tell you what he said. Use only if you have aggressive Mustard Algae that seems to be painted on your pool walls (brushing with a steel brush and adding Yellow Out, YellowTrine, Yellow Treat are ineffective). This stuff will work, I guarantee it — but it is copper based so use sparingly if at all:
