    Found the Easter Bunny - next steps

    I found a *rabbit* in my skimmer this morning.

    Mod note: I removed the picture. Some people might find it disturbing.

    I have no idea how long it has been floating there. Can not be more than 1 or 2 days. Other than physically removing it, is there anything I need to do to "sanitize" the pool?

    Inground, free form gunite pool (15k gal est) built around 2001. Hayward SWG, Pentair DE filter (FNSP60), TF-100 test kit.

    I've fished rats out. Since it's unlikely anyone's swimming yet, just give the pool an extra couple ppm of FC when you add and don't worry about it. If it is open, close it and take it up to shock level for a day. That'll kill anything in the water.
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
