The best thing that you can do is to learn about your swimming pool. There are many online resources and many local swimming pool retailers offer free or low cost "pool school" to help teach you about pool maintenance. First, a very green pool means algae. You will have to treat this, typically with chlorine and perhaps algaecide. I would suggest taking a water sample to a local retailer who will test the water for you and help you make a plan for opening your pool.
