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.

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.
