Ducks in my pool !! Help !

This is becoming very annoying. It appears that a few ducks know where my pool is now, so at least once a day they decide to dive in, take a dump and leave. I thought that was an isolated incident so I did not care at first. Now it happens more frequently. when this happens I have to move quickly and remove their deposits from the bottom of the pool and add chlorine. If I don't do that quickly, the bottom of the pool becomes discolored and plain ugly. What can I do to discourage these ducks from making these "rest stops" in my pool ? I have better things to do than to stand guard by the pool all day long ! Please give me some tips.

there are a few things you can try, hang old CD's around pool to scare them, there is a motion sensor water sprinkler you can use, fake owls, blow up snakes floating in pool, sometimes a radio playing. Good luck, they do make a mess....

Fence

Do you not have a security fence enclosing the pool area?
