My husband found a skunk in our pool a few days ago. He didn't tell me until I started saying, "Gosh, there must be a skunk in our yard because it's been smelly lately." So he ended up confessing that he uncovered the pool on Wednesday and was horrified to find a dead skunk under the solar cover. He was very upset to say the least. He got rid of it immediately and threw in the woods behind our home. I wonder if that is why we still smell skunk? I think maybe there are more skunks in our neighborhood which is why I smell it.
At any rate, he told me that he shocked the pool and super chlorinated the pool that day. He also back washed that day. Is this good enough? I would assume the skunk sprayed because of being panicked in our pool. I checked the pool- chemical-wise we are good. Chlorine between 3-5, Free chlorine 1-2, PH and CYA on the lower side.
Anyway- I just want to know if I have to drain my pool. I hope not! I am a little freaked out.
