Soap suds on surface of pool

This probably is the resultant of algaecide. Unless inspected physically can't conclude surely on the cause. why don't you contact your pool builders? Best and quickest of all options.

I opened my pool on Memorial Day and added about 18 oz of algecide to mine per the bottles instruction for size at opening. I have the same issue, when I run the filter it foams/suds up on the top. After the filter is off a bit, it clears up and is as clear as can be. Chemicals are right on. Sounds like it's something with the algecide causing your problem too.
