small insects in pool

Postby abc123wb » Sun 28 Jun, 2009 21:57

we just recently installed an above ground pool. no problems with the water--but i have a question that hopefully someone out there can answer for me--i have noticed little black bugs in the water. these bugs start out looking like gnats -- as they grow bigger they are hard to catch. they have long spidery legs and can walk on water and dive below the water to avoid getting caught. you have to be fast to catch them. can anyone tell me what they are and how to get rid of them?
