I think it is highly unlikely that an algae spore from the lake outside your home is the cause of your green water. Moving on...
Despite the comments Dawn made, i still believe you need to clean your filter pads daily. The denitrifying bacteria growth on your filter pads is minimal, and the reduction in phosphate buildup by cleaning your pads can be significant.
