    Exclamation Pool full....enter frogs! bleh!

    I filled the pool today and while it was filling.....here came a gigantic toad! I immediately turned on the pump, added 11 Oz of bleach and sprayed the perimeter of the pool with vinegar.

    I pray that I don't have to relive the frog orgy of 2014.

    Would you recommend I just watch my chlorine levels or should I add a bit of borax?

    You should be ok...unless those toads can scale the sides of the pool or use a ladder.

    See that's what worries me. I have no trees for them to be able to dive from. Last year I only heard them....never saw them until they laid their nasty eggs that hatched into hundreds of tadpoles. Bleh.
    I have no clue how they got into the pool.

    with good circulation and daily brushing, the eggs should be going into the drain or the skimmer???

    I don't have a drain or skimmer. It's a seasonal pool.
