lets just say, I think that an animal is sitting on my top step at night. I was seeing sand in the pool, and naively assumed that it was from my new sand filter (see my other post: http://www.troublefreepool.com/threa...led-improperly). The installer came, informed me that sand wasn't from the filter, because I am using Zeobrite which has a very different look. He showed me and I agree with him.
So where is my sand coming from? It seems to accumulate on the top step which has very shallow water, and we see dirt also on the top edge of the step mold where something dirty has been stepping on it. I know cats are around but am not sure that cats would frequent the pool since they are known for fear of water. But what about other animals (raccoons, squirrels ets.)? Do these animals frequent pools? i would like to know how to stop this from happening if any one has suggestions.
