spore killing in substrate

I have given up on trying to cure a 75 gallon tank of hair algae. 
I can bleach the tank but what can I do to the substrate? I'd like to reuse 
FYI, the strain of hair algae I had came from a pond when I brought in a 
plant. It was the most energetic algae I've ever experienced. It could 
explode and fill the tank entirely if any fertilizer was added. I could twirl 
it like spaghetti and it could regrow almost as fast. It loved water changes. 
I put a new intake tube on a filter intake and overnight the tube was 
covered. The algae would take a footed attachment and had to be scraped and 
scrubbed loose, it would not wipe off.
