I have high silica water, and I'm wondering that if the flakes spit out by out of balance low acidity also contain silica?

It so happens when I turn on super chlorinate, I get flakes. Which gives me an idea that may be a bit flaky, but here goes:
If the flakes contain silica, and I capture them somehow like in a pool net, I would be removing silica from my pool. I can easily replace the calcium removed in the flakes.
My silica content is just below the red line for municipal water. It's really tough to remove. If you have it you feel my pain...
