    Intro and prob with backswimmers

    Hello all,
    We are the proud owners of our first pool. It is saltwater, 24,000 gallon in-ground. We live in Louisiana. We are having a problems with backswimmers. Anyone have a solution?

    Hey TheWebsters Welcome to TFP!!

    Sufficient chlorine ought discourage them, but not always

    Borates will discourage both algae and bugs - please see Pool School (linked in my sig)

    Using the skimmer net is a sure fire way to get them out of the pool

    There have been a few discussions on this, feel free to use the search function to see better/ more practical advice on these beasties

    Having done construction and service for 4 pool companies in 4 states starting in 1988, what I know about pools could fill a couple of books - what I don't know could fill a couple of libraries :-D

    POOL SCHOOL, TF Testkits, Jason's Pool Calculator, CYA vs. cl chart, (Just a few DARNED handy links!)
