    How much damage does organic matter do (leaves etc)

    Hey guys. We opened to a clear blue pool this year again. Since then, some of those maple tree pods/seeds have blown in the water though. I'm guessing there's 20-30 at the bottom of the pool and it's just too darn cold still do jump in and clean them out (waters 66 degrees).

    How much chlorine is being sucked up by having that in the water over say 3 weeks (until water is warm)?

    I'm probably worrying over nothing, but I'll make the effort to vacuum them out if it's seriously eating chlorine.

    I don't think they would cause a serious CL demand. That said, get you a pole and net and scoop them out.

    Sounds like you need a leaf rake
