Can a person make their own pool chemicals? It really cost a lot of money to keep my above ground 14 x 18 foot ring-style pool clear.

I used to use bottled pool chlorine, then I compared the label to ordinary household bleach. It's the same stuff. Same percentage of Sodium Hypochlorite, but much cheaper. You only need about a cup per day, depending on the pool size.
