I found a dead field mouse in my skimmer basket today. This is the second time it has happened this season. I disposed of the corpse, but what the question is what do you do when you find dead rodents or similar larger creatures in your pool?
My yard backs out onto a forest, so field mice are bound to fall into the pool.
My test results today using the K-2006 were:
FC = 3.2
CC = 0.4
PH = 7.8
I did not test TA, CH or CYA today.
On Aug 7th the results were:
TA = 80
CH = 110
CYA = 30.
I am working on bring the CYA to the recommended level for salt water pools.
I had to wait a few days to go and buy some CYA and hence I only added the CYA on Aug 11th. I am waiting a week for the CYA to dissolve before retesting. I also added some MA today to drop down the PH. All additions have been per PoolMath.
The CC is elevated today as it took two drops to make all of the pink go away. Usually, I have all of the pink go away within one drop and I record that as 0.2 for the CC.
I am assuming that this was the result of the dead mouse in the skimmer. Back to the original question, what do you do when you find dead rodents or similar larger creatures in your pool?
