Swimmers in the paddling pool!

Hi all,
We got a large paddling pool about 3 weeks ago and it's been great fun, but with the weather not so good we have covered it up for the last week. Went to take cover off today and it's got little things swimming that look like tadpoles of some sort! Agh! How do you avoid this? We've got chlorine tablets in it and have kept it fairly clean but haven't covered up night.

We've emptied it for now, and I'll clean it properly tomorrow but how can I avoid?? Anyone else have the same happen?

That'll be fly larvae I think. Have you got a net with mesh to scoop them out?

We have now.... but there were so many! Any way of avoiding?
