    If you are maintaining it properly, its probably fine.
    test the FC and raise it if its low. Also check for CC.
    If you are really worried, raise it to slam level for a day or so and it should be fine.

    Found one 2 weeks ago in mine, not only that, but he baby ruthed all over the steps. Cleaned up the dung with the vaccum and went swimming. I keep my FC high enough not to worry too much.

    Wow cant use any word for solid waste!

    Thank you for the reassurance my pool is on set and my fc is at about 6 or 7. I will probably buy a three pack of chorine and dump it in there
