Removing Containments from pool

I have some form of containment on the fllor and steps of my pool. My pool is balanced and as I get good readings from my Taylor test kit and I do not have algae as I passed a recent OCLT i ran. The material is very fine and golden brown in color. I believe it may be pollen from nearby flower bushes. I added a nylon sock to the inside of my pool sweep bag but can not seem to make it be gone. Need recommendations on what I can do or try to remove it from the water.

Sounds like a job for a manual vacuum. Whatever it is, it won't pass through your filter.

You'll need a head, a hose, a pole, and possibly a skimmer plate or an adaptor to connect the hose to your suction port.
