We have used a product called Kings Duck Solution that is applied to the area around the pool that the duck likes to frequent. It is all-natural and non toxic and ducks simply hate the stuff and leave...... and they have not returned. Easy. There is a web page

Trapping is apparently the only sure fire method. Or a gun, I suppose, but that's mean. i don't think u should use a gun i think use a trap to remove them call animal control to relocate them hope this helps.

Ducks love your pool because it is a safe place to stay, swim, preen and socialise. Ducks see you pool from above as a waypoint while doing their daily routine. Your task is to take your pool out of their daily routine and stay elsewhere longer or find another place. Products such as Kings Duck Solution will change their routine. Ducks will make your pool unhealthy and unsafe. There is nothing cute about ducks swimming in your pool. Do not encourage or feed them. Any duck dropping should be treated like and other fecal accident. If you are invited to swim in a pool with a duck issue - politely refuse.

No, but if they swim in your pool a lot, the duck poop is going to make the water murky. Ducks and swimming pools are not a good combination. Pool sanitisers such as chlorine have no ill affect on the bird. Ducks like the pool environment as it is often a safe haven with clear water and unobtrusive surrounds. The duck droppings do have a negative effect on the pool water balance and will eventually clog the filter with the creamy white paste.

Ducks can tolerate limited contact with chlorine pools. Since natural habitat is lost in urban areas, ducks have little choice. Set up a chlorine-free wading pool for wild mallards.
