Algae

I called my lfs to ask why I've been getting a bunch of green algae growing on the leaves of my one plant, and then a brown slime is in spots throughout the rest of my tank. I figured if I just bought some algae eater that liked it, all would be well and good. Well, he attributes it to phosphates in my water because I use tap water with a filter on it, which he says doesn't screen out the phosphates. He recommended changing my water twice a week to get the levels down. Anyone else have any input on this?
