    I have a hose by the deck gate to rinse feet before going in. The pool is an above ground so we don't get grass clippings blowing in.

    Tracked in or blown in by the mower?

    Tracking-wise, we have a deck from the house to the pool. Mower-wise, I turn the main drain off before mowing to maximize skimmer flow, then aim the deck opening away from the pool. Still usually get something in there when it's dry and the stuff blows around.

    Above ground here - we use a blower to move all grass clippings away from pool area.

    I also have AG, but I use to work for a lawn mowing company, we would purposely mow in a direction that the discharge was always pointing away from the pool to minimize the debre, then blow the deck from coping edge to grass yard.
