    Mosquito Larvae???

    When I went out to check my PH this morning I noticed these tiny wormy wiggly things in the water. Our pump has not been running yet because I wasn't sure if I should let it run using a cartridge that was previously used with Baqua until I had everything ready for the conversion. Guess I should have asked, but I'm not even sure how long they have been there since it took a week and a half to get the pool filled. We have tons of mosquitos outside and I was thinking these little wormy things could possibly be mosquito larvae. From what I've read while researching CL will not kill them....so how do you get rid of them? I do not want to be swimming with "worms" and I don't even know if it's safe. Thanks!

    I really wouldn't worry about it right now. Shock levels of chlorine, which you will have soon, will kill them.
