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.

Bugs, frogs, salamanders, tadpoles or any other bugs that are attracted to your swimming pool water will die when you super chlorinate or "shock" your pool. The Chlorine is used as a sanitizer will terminate the insects, ect. However, if you regularly net or skim your swimming pool surface water this will also remove them from the water without harming them. You will never be able to keep them from entering the water if it is a outdoor swimming pool. Hope this helps!!!

To stop bugs from comming into your pool, you need to get a cover or get a net and before you swim clean off all the ded bugs on top.


Cover your pool if it will not be in use. Remove food sources for the bugs, other dead bugs and foliage. Spray existing bugs with soapy water.

How can I get rid of rust colored stains in my salt water pool. It is only in the shallow end?


It is either the bugs around it or the bad water.


It really depends on how you want to. The fastest way is to shock the pool then scoop out the bugs. Another way is to buy a filter that they make for pools with bug problems.


Probabily the ground surrounding your pool if its in-ground. In an above-ground pool they most likely fly into the pool or crawl into it from the sides.
