This year I have found four different types of water bugs in my pool. I have identified several of them.
1. Water Boatman (3 of them)
2. Water Scorpions (1 of them)
3. Water Striders (3 of them)
4. Some little black dots 1/4 to 1/2 the size of a dog flea that stay on or near the surface but can swim.
It there a certain level of FC that will ensure no water-bugs are ever found in the pool?
Here are my water specs:
I couldn't ask for better water conditions so I'm shocked that I ever find any living bug in the pool water. I was skimming them out and throwing them into the yard. I started killing them today to keep them from flying back into the pool since that is how they get into the pool in the first place based on what I have read and learned. My water is always perfectly clear and my pool is kept perfectly clean all of the time. My water conditions are usually what I have displayed above.
