We have a lot of pollen in our pool. We are surrounded by pine and oak trees on two sides of our yard, so we get tons of pollen. This is our first year dealing with it, as our pool went up last June. We have vacucumned to waste, and have vacuumned with two skimmer socks and still have a lot of pollen. It cleans the pool, but by the next day the pollen is back. I don't believe it is yellow mustard because it doesn't act like yellow mustard in that it goes anywhere in the pool, not just the shady side. We dealt with yellow mustard last year so I'm familiar with that.
My question - because this pollen is fine, should we add aluminum sulfate to the pool and will that take care of the problem. We haven't used it before, but we heard that the pollen will bind to it, so it will get stuck in the skimmer sock.
Should that be the next step?
Thanks for your help.
