How do you get green algae out of a above ground pool without using a chlorine system? Please help.

Cover the pool with an opaque cover when not in use. Algae can not grow in the absence of light. Salt will also discourage algae growth.
I had red algae grow in my fish tank when the light was not sufficient. Just covering the pool may not work.
I have no experience with algae in a pool, but I think you can get some sort of oxygenating system.
