ducks droppings in the new pool

Postby yanuca42 » Tue 10 Oct, 2006 19:15

Please help - we have just had our pool in complex recoated with pebblecrete and the two wood ducks are delighted - however their deposits have left large black stains on the new surface - as there are thirty units here it gets well used in summer, but it looks dreadful at present - vacuuming doesn't seem to help - apart from bombing with chlorine any other suggestions? Surely others must have this problem in the drought - any ideas how to catch the ducks and relocate them? many thanks

Just opened my pool last week and I have had two ducks using it since I took the cover off.. I found that a good 12 guage shotgun does the trick nicely ;)-

Having once owned ducks, I can tell you that they will dirty the water up quite quickly!!! They will poop in it.

Are these wild ducks? If they are pet ducks, I would suggest getting them there own kiddie pool to swim in.
Me without a pool, is like a duck out of water.
