Pretty sure it’s pollen and tree debris but just curious

Yes the trees are right next to the pool -why? I live in a city on a tiny lot surrounded by houses and apartment buildings - they give the illusion of privacy
Just keep noticing dust on the stairs -a faint hint of dust - brown/green - can t imagine at chlorine levels I have that. It’s algae and I m not losing chlorine over night - so .........?
I ll be able to vacuum tomorrow and we ll be in it all weekend ( Warmer weather returns to NY metropolitan area this weekend - whooppee! )

I know CYA s nuts but I m closing pool in a few weeks and probably replacing liner in April as pool base is just disappearing under floor of pool - leaving depressions where Cross braces are and near rear side - Poor installation ? With too little base? Or too much hard rain - who knows - but I can feel sharp metal trying to work it s way through the bottom ???
Ah the joys of above ground pools n the city ?‍♀

whatever is landing on your deck and toprail is at the very least in your pool also. Like Alan said the OCLT will put your mind at ease.
