If you are adding algaecide, what is the clarifier for? The algaecide would probably create foam anyway. The cheaper brands like HTH that you can get at Wal-Mart etc. cause a great deal of foam. They also form a scum ring on your pool that is hard to remove. Use a better quality algaecide such as BioGuard's Back Up. Don't over use any product containing copper (II) sulfate since they tend to stain the pool over time. Back up is great for keeping the bugs out of your pool also. It's expensive but it's worth it.
