In Pool Tips by Platinum Pools

If you own a pool in Houston, Texas, you may have encountered some unwanted visitors: ducks. While ducks may seem harmless and cute, they can cause a lot of problems for your pool and your health. Ducks can contaminate your pool water with their droppings, which can carry bacteria and parasites. They can also damage your pool equipment, make noise, and attract other pests. Not to mention, they can ruin your peaceful and relaxing pool experience. 

How can you keep ducks out of your pool without harming them? In this blog post, we will share some effective and humane solutions that you can try. These solutions include: 

  • Using a solar cover to make your pool less appealing to ducks 
  • Installing an automatic pool cleaner to scare ducks away 
  • Putting up a fishing line or a net to create a barrier around your pool 
  • Using visual deterrents such as decoys, kites, or pool toys to intimidate ducks 
  • Using motion-activated devices such as sprinklers, lights, or sounds to startle ducks 
  • Maintaining your water quality and removing any food sources to discourage ducks from returning 
  • Hiring a professional wildlife removal service to relocate ducks safely
