    Curosity Question

    So this morning we were greeted by a huge goose in the back yard!! Mind you, he wasn't in the pool, but we do have plenty geese and ducks in the area and spring is right around the corner..what happens to the pool chemistry balance should they decide to hang out and take a swim?

    They'll use up a little chlorine but I don't think they'd use up much unless a bunch of them got in there. I'd still try to discourage them if it was me. Geese (and ducks) are nothing but eating & pooping machines and I wouldn't want that in the pool.

    If all they did was swim I'd be happy to let them. However, as Bama pointed out, they are very messy. Better run them off sooner than later...

    Thanks for the input! I definitely like them better when they are not hanging out in the pool. Thankfully for us, the dogs should keep that problem in check...I just was very curious what they could do to the chemistry ( poop was was I was thinking about).
