    Tiny little bugs in pool and leaf basket

    I don't know if they're breeding in there or what, but it seems like their preferred choice of residence

    What the heck are these things and how do I get rid of them?

    I will try to take a photo later with a half decent camera

    They appeared a few weeks back with all the pollen
    in-ground pool approx 8-10,000 gallons. plaster i think.

    With spring and increased temps comes the awakening of all sorts of insects. Can't beat Mother Nature. I suspect all that strong wind you got a couple days ago didn't help. But if you're not using one already, add a skimmer net to your poolside skimmer to help catch those little buggers.

    I put in a pool sock a few days ago, works really well. Hopefully that helps solve things
