Hi, Robin,

How many pools do you have?

If you have a relatively small, fixed number of Pools you could try
conditional indices, like:

CREATE INDEX mytable_pool1_idx USING GIST ON mytable(geom
CREATE INDEX mytable_pool2_idx USING GIST ON mytable(geom

The query optimizer should get it when your query includes a "pool=2" or
so in the WHERE clause.

This may be an equal solution for your problem (but nevertheless, you
should try to debug the reasons for your crash).
