First of all call a pool company! Are you sure that you don't have a "mustard" algae problem? The heater needs to be looked at and the only way to get rid of rust particles is to vac to waste.

Rust deposits from your heater are possible if your heat exchanger is old and has glass lined headers. The glass installed by the manufacturer is starting to deteriorate and it is exposing the steel underneath. The rust swells and then breaks off.
