Duck droppings are harmful if allowed to dry and harbor a mould that when ingested will cause long term illness. Mainly small children are at risk. The droppings in the pool will be sanitised by the pool chlorine however I would like to see the level of chlorine sanitiser at around 5ppm to be sure.

Also make sure to clean the filter often.

I think that they can since my mallard and my cayuga duck did mate and have ducklings.

If the result you want is a mallard, yes. If mallards can just breed with other ducks, yes, a mallard duck can breed other breed ducks.
