No. Swimming pools have chlorine or salt-water, both of which prevent the growth of mosquito larvae, so even if a mosquito lays eggs in a swimming pool, the eggs will die before becoming larvae.

As long as you keep your pool regularly chlorinated then the mosquito larvae will not have a suitable water pH to survive in. If you slack off on the chlorination then the water will start to turn a greenish color and that is when the larvae will thrive.

Fish do feed on mosquito larvae.
