    My nice clear pool is now coated in yellow pollen as is everything else here. I am vacuuming daily, running the filter and using the net and no luck. A neighbor said to use a flocking agent but I really don't want to add chemicals if not needed. Any advice would be great.

    If you're vacuuming daily, my guess is you would have to be flocking it daily as well! Just do what you're doing and make sure to keep your FC levels up. Same boat here.

    You could also use a skimmer sock, it fits over the basket in the skimmer to catch the pollen before it reaches the filter. Just check it often if you have a lot of pollen so it doesn't get clogged and starve your pump of water.
