Will a filter be enough for a small pool or do you need to add chemicals?

Filters and chemicals work differently. You'll need both. The filter removes particulate from the water, which makes it clear (which makes you happy). The chemicals act by reducing the amount of microorganisms growing in the water. The chemicals work first and the filter sweeps up after them. For a private pool you can use less of the chemicals than are usually used in public pools.
