Note that OSU recommends pesticides while U.C. Davis states they're not really effective in springtail management. Unchecked, they can live for up to a year, subsisting on decayed vegetation.
I've treated the landscaping in the pool area as well as the expansion joints in the pool deck (stopping about a foot shy of the pool's edge) w/ some success in the past. Once you've effectively reduced the source population outside the pool you can expect the springtails that ended up in the pool itself will die or end up in the filter within a matter of days (try closing the valve on your main drains to increase the flow rate in your skimmers).
