Help! Water bugs in pool!

Hi all, I've noticed a bunch of water bugs in my pool and I'm not sure how to get rid of them. They apparently aren't affected by chlorine since they skate on top of the water. Anything I can do besides constantly vacuuming them out?? Maybe at least kill the eggs somehow? Thanks.

Thanks. :) :) They will feed on various insects that have gotten trapped in the pool. There isn't a lot you can do to keep them out so make sure other types of insects that have fallen into the pool are cleaned up and will not give them a food source.
