I had the same problem and tried everything to get rid of them.....ended up draining entire pool and then scrubbing with diluted bleach, rinsing, then re-filling again and problem free 3 weeks later.

i get tons of black worms about 1 1/2 " long and i think they come from a very large pine tree............when the wind blows hard, and it rains lots, and needles begin to turn red and fall.........the next day the bottom of the pool literally has hundreds (all dead) and i vacuum them up and empty my skimmer basket............gross...........i would love to cut down the tree because of this problem, but of course, the tree looks nice??????

Obviously snakes, since worms are invertebrates.

No they are not. Eels are fish, snakes are reptiles, and worms are invetebrates.

Because.. Worms have no internal skeleton - snakes do. Worms are herbivores - snakes are carnivores. Worms are hermaphrodites, and reproduce asexually - snakes need to mate with members of the opposite sex.

They are not worms they are millipedes and you can kill them by putting vinegar near the doors where they intrude .

Snakes and worms are not closely related. Worms are fairly primitive invertebrates, while snakes are vertebrates with backbones and ribs, a brain, and well-developed circulatory system, among other things. Physically, they are more closely related to birds than to worms.

Snakes are reptiles and have scales and a backbone, and also have teeth. Worms are not reptiles and don't have scales, don't have backbones and don't have teeth. Snakes have tongues and worms don't. Snakes slither and worms crawl.

I found a couple of very thin, long blackish brown worms in my shower, and I belive they are horse hair worms. They say they are not harmful to pets or people.

No! Of course not. Snakes do not have any legs. They slither, like worms.

People who believe woolly worms can predict the weather think that a narrow red-brown band means a harsh winter. The wider the red-brown band is, the milder the coming winter is supposed to be.
