[APD] System 1 filter - not working?

I just bought a System 1 diatom filter with the hope that I could use it to help fight a green water problem I am currently having.  But when I ran it (for two hours) the filter made absolutely no difference in the green water!  The filter did not clog with algae as I was hoping - the DE powder never even turned green.  Can floating algae be too small to be filtered out by a diatom filter?  Should I have tried running it longer?  Could something be wrong with the filter? (It looked like it was running just fine.)  I talked to a guy at the company who makes the System 1 and he said not many people use a diatom filter for green water. . .but from what I've read in the archives here - people do use it successfully for this purpose. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.
