    Water Bugs (boatmen)

    Ok, I am almost sure that the bugs that are biting me in my new pool are water boatmen. I have a salt water pool that is about 4 weeks old. I don't want to sound rude but I don't need to hear other people's experiences (really, I don't want to be rude). All I want to know is how do I get rid of these things. Is my algea high? Is my pool too warm (90)? I am desperate to never have this problem again. Is there a product to rid these bugs? It is very discouraging to me that I have spent over $50,000 and this could be an ongoing problem. javascript:emoticon('')

    Please help, Thank you.
