Maintaining 15 pools.. Wow great work .. I also don't want to face any algae problems in my pool. What precautions must be taken? Should we add other chemicals in addition to chlorine.

No need to add additional chemicals
Just maintain your chlorine level relative to your CYA level as in Chlorine / CYA Chart
For every 10 ppm Free Chlorine (FC) added by Trichlor, it also increases Cyanuric Acid (CYA) by 6 ppm.
For every 10 ppm FC added by Dichlor, it also increases CYA by 9 ppm.
For every 10 ppm FC added by Cal-Hypo, it also increases Calcium Hardness (CH) by at least 7 ppm
Bleach (Sodium hypochlorite) doesn't increase CYA
If in doubt Slam
