anybody have any ideas to discourage this? they will leave when it rains (c'mon monsoons!) but that could be a couple of weeks yet.
There is plenty of other water nearby - a bird bath, a large dog/toad water, and two livestock troughs, but it seems they really like the clean chlorinated pool water a LOT!
They kind of go away for a short while if I spend a half hour splashing and making the water choppy, but it still nerve-wracking to do my backstroke laps. they are quite stupid and fall in all the time. and like a cow stuck in the mud, they are NEVER grateful to be rescued.
