How do you rid your pool of water boatmen?
Make sure ur pool is chlorinated often cause that kills them and they also bite
Yes they can also live in the Ocean, But they cannot stay in a properly balanced pool for long They seem to survive in salt water pools for their normal "season" refardless of water balance or condition. They do not appear to be harmful and can only be made to disappear with a chemical product that is hazadous to humans.
How do you get rid of water boatmen and backswimmers in a saltwater pool I have read where BioGuard works wonders for chlorinated pools but does it work for saltwater If not what does?
Salt water pools are in fact chlorine pools part of the salt is turned into chlorine by the salt water chlorinater If it works in a normally chlorinated pool it should also work in a salt water pool. However you should check if there is any metallic ingredient like copper in it as these are not recommended in salt water pools.
What sort of bug looks like a fish with legs when it swims... and how do you keep them away from your pool?
== == * I think what you are seeing is what we here call "boatmen." Once in a while, I find one or two in my pool, and I scoop them up and kill them. And they also bite and are tricky swimmers. I've noticed that if I'm low on my chlorine, they're around. In which case, I add more immediately. They actually live around ponds, etc., but I have a large body of water…
The pool has popped out of the ground because it was was forced up by ground water. If a pool is left empty ground water can build up underneath it causing the pool to start to float, Whenever a pool is drained a way of getting rid of ground water has to be set up otherwise there is the risk of this happening.
It depends on what the bugs are...if they are mosquitoes, you can get rid of them by circulating the water. Mosquito larvae need still and stagnent water to survive. Not too many other types of bugs will live in the pool water, but many types will use the pool as a water source, so they are living near the pool. You need to include more information in your question such as do they live in…
