    Lots of Pollen

    All week I have been having tons of pollen in the pool, as the oak trees are all putting out pollen very early this year.
    I have cleaned out filter 2 times and was yellow both times. Have also been getting a pollen ring all the way around the pool. Should I get anything to add to pool as I do not want this stuff to start a green pool FC is at 8 now as I have bumped it up just in case. this is just my first time dealing with so much pollen.

    Skimmer socks can help reduce the frequency of filter cleaning. Other than that you just have to keep ahead of the chlorine demand and not let the levels fall.
