do Japanese snails work for algae problem?

I am a new pond owner and I have an algae problem. I read an article saying Japanese snails work to cut down on algae. Any comments before I go searching for these snails. My pond is about 90 gallons, so it's not very big. I thought if I started out small it would be easier to maintain. I have water hyacinth covering about 3/4th of the pond, and a few plants, although two of my plants have died and I don't know what I did wrong. I do not have fish at this time, but would like to put two gold fish in when I'm sure they will live. We have had very warm weather this summer and I must add water to the pond every two days. Maybe the tap water is causing the problem. Any help would be appreciated.

No snails will really hep an algae problem much.

What kind of algae? Green water? hair algae? Perhaps I can help.
