We are having the same trouble. Installed a 16 x 32 Intex pool with a saltwater filter about 3 weeks ago and you have to swat dozes of bees to get in. We never had trouble with bees before. We live in the country and others on our road have ponds and pools and no problems with bees. Tried oils, soap, moth balls . . . no luck. They seem to really like the area near the filter and skimmer basket. Maybe the hum reminds them of home? I won't even get in. I hope someone can help!Hello friends, I’ve recently set up an intex pool with a saltwater filter. My neighbor keeps bees and unfortunately for me, honeybees are attracted to it to make honey (according to google). My four year old son was already stung yesterday (our first time in the pool) and the problem is seemingly getting worse daily. I’ve tried to repel with dryer sheets, soap water, garlic etc. but it isn’t working. Any other ideas? Should i convert to chlorine?
If so, can I use my existing saltwater sand filter on just the filter pump setting only? Do I need to drain the pool in its entirety and refill?
Thank you anyone and everyone for your insight! It would be very much appreciated as I'm feeling like I can't even use what was supposed to be a summer oasis for the fam!
