    Please post pictures of your pond or pool setups, and explain how you filter/clean them. I'm about to set one up, but i want to see some ideas.

    I use a kiddy pool and only fill it about half way so the ducks can jump out easier.
    I change the water 1 to 2 times a week, just depends on how much they use it and how dirty the water is.
    Dont want my ducks smelling poopy!!!
    As far as filter and cleaning, i turn it over and dump it, sometimes take buckets of the nasty poop water and pour it over the compost.
    Then I spray out the pool and fill it half way back up.
    Once every few months, I fill the pool up and pour bleach in it, let it set overnight, then scrub it good the next morning. RINSE WELL!!!! I let it air dry, then give it back to them to use. Everyone is always asking how my ducks are so cleann and shiny!!
