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.
