Pool care doesn’t just mean keeping your pool clean, but can also involve keeping your pool safe. Have you ever come home to find wild animals in your pool? Does it worry you when they cannot get out or does it bug you because of the extra cleaning involved? During our time helping thousands of Australian’s across the country, we have come across some pretty inventive solutions to help with this common problem. Here are a few that we would like to share with you:

Flamingo’s are a great way to keep larger animals at bay, such as ducks. They scare the ducks away by showing them that this pool is already occupied. Also, notice in the above picture, on the bottom right corner, these pool owners went one step further and introduced a snake on the scene, just to be sure the ducks would be deterred. These pink flamingos come in many sizes, are also fun for the kids, and can be purchased from your local Jim’s Pool Care business owner.


Pool Safety Ramps

The next on our list is great for larger animals, such as possums, and are also really great for your pets such as cats and dogs!
