    I found what appears to be springtails in my pool yesterday. (Little thrip looking insect that jumps from water surface to side) I assume the rain brought them in when a ban associated with tropical storm Bill came through. I brushed the side and ran my pump all night. Usually I just run it during the day. They don't seem as bad this morning. From what I have gathered in a little bit of research, there's not much to do but just wait them out and they will be gone. Anyone have any advice or been through this? I looked through the forum but didn't find anything recent. Thanks a bunch!

    Welcome to TFP!

    I wouldn't let them worry me much. They won't reproduce in a properly Chlorinated pool very well if at all. A well kept pool is a very harsh environment for things like that.
