    Pool wrigglies

    Pool chemicals have tested out fine, if anything ph is a little low. Couple days ago shocked and this evening saw noticable piles of debris so I vaccuumed...what I saw was a bunch of little white, ricelike worms/larva/ ??? They are about size of a quarter of a piece of rice.At first squirming when out of pool , while vaccuuming noticed alot floating in pool as well. So next day I super shocked and called local pool experts. They recommended algaecide. Did that and vaccuumed up half of what I did first day...all dead yesterday. Evening vaccumed again and now only a bit. What are they? R they harmful? How do I get completely rid? First time member... Thanks! Not mesquitos!

    Is there as tree or two near your pool?

    I get something similar every spring, from the trees overhanging my pool. I don't know what they are, I just vacuum them out daily for about two weeks, then they are gone.

    Never heard of that .. Yuck!

    You didn't need to add algaecide for that. If your FC levels are good, all is well
