Does anyone have any idea why frogs are dying in my pool? We live near a woods with a pond. Over the years we have taken hundreds of live frogs out of the pool and relocated them to a different pond about a mile away. In the past 2 days we have found 3 dead frogs in the pool. The pump was either off or on bottom drain. It is a vinyl inground pool. The water quality has been a little off and I am now working to correct it but it definitely has been worse before and no frogs died.
This morning the pH was ~8, chlorine 0, alk 80, water clear, no odor. The other day we did have about 6 inches of rain, but I took 2 live frogs out shortly after that. I check the pool twice a day and have rafts and other things the can get on.
Could it be something in the water that I am not checking for like ammonia, nitrates, or phosphates? Any suggestions would be very welcome. I really don't want to see any more frogs die. Thanks.
