    Welcome to TFP !

    They could be mosquito larva. They wont hurt you but are very unsightly to look at. Do you have anyway of taking a picture and posting it so we can see what they look like ?
    In a balanced pool they dont grow because the chlorine kills them off and then they are filtered out through your filter.

    Also a full set of numbers would be helpful as well.
    Don't have a pool right now. Just sharing what I have learned over the years!
