    Here's a strange question - related to worms

    After I opened our IGP for the first time last spring, I found thousands (and I do mean thousands) of worms covering the bottom of the pool. I should have taken a picture to share. Anyway, I am getting ready to close the pool up in a couple of weeks, and was wondering of anyone else has this same problem - ideas to prevent a recurrence? Thanks.

    Fish. They'd eat the worms.

    There are usually several reports of worms in the pool. The only prevention I've heard of is to poison the ground around the pool. There may be some barrier you could use but I'm not aware of anything.
