Ok...I'm somewhat of a clean freak. But the teeny tiny floating particles on the top of my pool are really annoying me. I assume most of it is dust and pollen (there are some tufts of what look to be cotton mixed in, too, but I didn't think we had any cotton trees around here). I put knee highs on the skimmer baskets in hopes it would help. I could clean those dang socks every day b/c they are filled with icky gunk. I skim the pool every night and again every morning but the particles are mostly so tiny they just go right through the net.
Is this typical? Is it just something I need to learn to live with?
