    Ducks in Pool

    Any ideas on how to keep ducks from using my pool as a toilet? We don't have a dog or a solar cover...

    Of course then you will need to use a metal sequestriant in your pool right?

    And may not be recommended for vinyl lined pools

    Use rock salt shells!

    Add salt to water, salt the duck, and (maybe) not hurt the liner!

    Only two chemicals go in my pool! - bleach and muriatic acid!

    Mine laid eggs in my pool, among the other "stuff" they left behind. They finally just went away. I'm surprised they liked the salt and borate water.
