    Answer to a clean pool. Dont have ducks lol. The pool is clean only when you refill it and untill they step foot in it. After that it is game over lol.

    Yea, good luck with that.

    I change water daily........ Or rather, I go out once a day and dump out the mud and replace it with fresh water.

    I have waterers that they can't get their fat butts into, so they have clean drinking water--- except for the feed and mud they dabble into it.

    I clean mine every other day. I have kiddie pools so it's not to hard to do. I have a brush on a pole so it's really easy to squirt some soap in there give it a swish with a little bleach, rinse, dump and fill. If I do it at night I will fill the pools up with some bleach in it and let it work over night. Once the sun comes up the bleach is gone.
     
  7. I just dump, rinse, refill every day. Water isn't clean=no swimming! Picky li'l things. But to see their joy when swimming-priceless.

    haha I usually put on rain boots and step on one edge of my duck's kiddie pool then use the highest pressure setting on the hose to clean it every other day and scrub it when it gets really bad I think it is impossible to keep it completely clean theyre so messy!!
