    Need help with algae in a salt water pool!!

    First of all please bear with me I am new to the poll thing, we have a small 18" above ground pool. Last year we invested in a salt water system which has been great. Unfortunately this year the filter pump quit working. I found a new pump online and it has taken 4 days to get it. Yesterday we noticed the crystal clear pool we had has now becone a green frog pond.
    what advice can anyone give me on what chemicals to us or what to do to combat our problem.
    any help will be greatly appreciated

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
