WE had green algae in our pool. We put in the recommended chemicals. It looks like it all settled on the bottom of the pool Do we just vacuum the pool, or do we have to get it out as "waste". I do not want to waste water if we don't need too.

Even if you vacuum out the dust it is going to clog up the filter causing you to backwash anyways which will waste water. Your best bet is to vacuum it out to waste to get rid of it all.
