    Any thing special to do after dead possums in pool

    Is anything other than shocking necessary after pulling a couple of dead possum's out of the pool. Tested and adjusted the water yesterday afternoon and found them this morning.

    Just bring the pool up to shock level and that should take care of it.

    Actually you might be surprised at how good possum tastes when it's cooked right. Here's a link to several good possum recipes: http://ushotstuff.com/wg/OpossumSmp.htm
    20' x 40' IG with vinyl liner volume approx. 35,000 gal.1.5 H.P. main pump, Polaris 280 cleaner W/ 3/4 H.P. booster pump
    Hayward sand filter, 3.14 sq ft, 62 gpm. Stenner 45 MPH10 chlorine feed pump. 1 micron final filter bags (home made and very effective)

    Somehow I don"t think this applies to drowned possum!

    If you've ever saw the dietary habits of a possum, you would NEVER ever think of eating one.

    Of course, that would apply to chicken as well.
