    What is this blob?

    Well, I don't know what it is. I guess it really doesn't matter because it's not in the pool anymore right? Looks pretty gross though... yuck.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Yeah but it's not the first time I've seen it. Looks like a cocoon in the water.

    Most likely some seed pods from trees.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Yes, it looks like seeds from cottonwood trees. I know here in Michigan they have started to drop this week.

    I was going to suggest owl poop but if you have cottonwood trees then that could be.

    Looks like this, just taken out of my skimmer sock after one day.uploadfromtaptalk1402956123732.jpg

    Cottonwood? I don't know, but quite common for me this time of year.
