The most common treatment for green algae is to simply super-shock the pool, adding about two times the normal amount needed for a standard shock treatment.
Adding an algaecide to the application will increase your odds for removing the algae on the first attempt; however, there are some chlorine-resistant strains that could require more specific treatment methods.
In such cases, you should consult with your local and trusted pool professional for advice to save on potential failed costs and frustrations.
Regardless of treatment, allowing the pump and filter to run continuously for 24 - 48 hours is key for the success of the process and proper water balance can play a big role.
