Cottonwoods in full effect

So now the cottonwoods have started seeding. I hate those things. Was hoping at this new house we wouldn't have any. At the old house they would coat the AC condenser. No condenser at this new house we are on geothermal. But now I have a pool.

Any tricks? I assume skimmer socks are the way to go?

Skimmer socks and the occasional manual skimming. I have them right now too. My return jets circulate the surface water clockwise and what misses the skimmers gets trapped in one corner of my pool. Then I just go out and scoop that one corner out. HTH
