I bit the bullet and ordered up a PoolSkim. It should be here next week.
I have a large crepe myrtle (next door) that drops white blooms all day, everyday, and lots of bees (dead and alive) on the surface of my pool. I will let you all know how it works out.
I am getting this in part to the fact that when my AquaBug is running, the skimmer is not able to clean the surface of the pool. The PoolSkim works on the return side; so, I should be able to clean and skim at the same time. My hope is to run the PoolSkim for an hour or so in the afternoon, before getting in the pool, and not need to scoop out leaves, blooms and drowning bees.
Edited for grammar and clarity.
