If you are reffering to small bugs that collect on the surface of the water and /or the tiles, and jump when you touch them, they are probably "spring-tails". It being winter or early spring, you may not have them right now. But when you do, Dawn dishwasing detergent does the trick. Put a small amount of dawn in a spray bottle, fill the rest of the bottle with water, and spray it right on the bugs. The soap either breaks the surface tension of the water, or it just weighs them down. But either way, they drown and will be sucked up by the filter. It may take several treatments to get them all.


Look for a product called No More Bugs. (lo-Chlor) It will put a film over the pool surface and they drown. Vacuum up the residue.
