    It would be best to eliminate the algae before you totally close. Leaving the algae in there might create a green monster when you open next spring. I would suggest doing a SLAM now in hopes to quickly kill any algae before you close. The SLAM link is below in my signature. Follow every instruction listed on the SLAM page and you will do just fine. Good luck!

    +1 what Texas Splash said.

    If you close with a messy pool, you have a good chance of opening with a messy pool. No real big deal, just a lot more work in the Spring.
