I had a similar problem in my backyward that has no pool but does have a large concrete and wood deck patio covered by two large trees. The solution was given to me by my housekeeper. She suggested buying plastic snakes and hanging them around the trees and leaving them on the tables and chairs. At first it didn't seem to be working, but one week later, there were no bird droppings at all! $7 worth of plastic snakes at wal-mart solved the problem!

The quickest way would be to net out as much of it as you can. In order to sanitize you pool water you will need to shock it with chlorine. However, check your water balance prior to adding chlorine. Birds are attracted to the swimming pool water and it will be difficult to keep them away. If you keep floating toys or objects in your pool when it is not in use consider removing them or keep your pool covered unless you are using it. A Solar cover would help your pool retain heat and keep the bird dropping out of the water!!
