Pond turned green HELP

Howdy ya'll, maybe ya'll can help us out, recently due to the rain and high humidity our 25'x33'x2-1/2'deep pond turned real green over night and since then we have been tryin a couple of chemicals to get rid of the green but its doesn't seem to be working. Do ya'll know the best way to get rid of the algae without killing the koi? Any help would be appreciated.

What type of pond, UV light? Biofilter?

Off hand I would say add some SuperCharged AquaClearer Liquid. Not a chemical, it's bacteria.

I can't remember if it was Gemplers or AM Leonard that had some microbial stuff ( I think) that hog farmers use to clean their ponds out ... I'll see if I can root that up.
