    Cicada's and your pool

    Normally I try and get the Ultra setup by memorial day to give me time to fill, balance and get warm by the time school is over for the summer. Here in Pa we are still awaiting the 17yr cicada's to emerge. Since many of you further south along the eastern seaboard have already been invaded by the bugs, the question I have is have you had any problems with the cicadas invading your pool? If so I may decide to wait and put up the pool when the majority of the bugs are gone instead of having to potentially scoop hundreds out every day. Anyone have any experiences to share?

    We have LOTS of them and they never seem to have anything to do with the pool.

    Yep, we have cicada's every summer. I hear them daily from about mid-June through September but rarely ever see them. Cannot recall ever seeing one in the pool.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
