That's not much to go on.

1. Buy a swimming pool leaf rake/net and get the leaves out of the pool.
2. Post the volume in gallons of your pool
3. Post your water test readings.

The best way to get rid of your
algae problem is to do this...

1. Check and adjust your ph to correct levels
2. Shock the pool with chlorine
3. Add a floc to the water
3. Broom the walls and floor with a brush
4. Let the pump circulate the water so the chemicals mix
5. Turn off the pump and wait 24-48 hours
6. Vacuum the bottome of the pool to waste once everythings settled
7. Add an algaecide so that it doesnt happen again

Hope this helps?

Take Care,
