How do I Keep a Swimming Pool Clean? Answered

I have a pool in my yard that nobody has used for years.  I would love to backfill it with dirt but my wife says no.  I am getting sick and tired of using "human safe" chemicals to keep it clean, especially as it still gets algae during our hot Las Vegas summers.

I am looking for some chemical(s) are are EPA legal but so powerful that nobody should swim in them.  Essentially, what I want is something that will kill everything in the water and keep it dead for a significant period of time.

Bleach. Gallons and gallons of bleach. Google the BBB method.
