Thx all for the feedback. Ducks at the other pools while they have been around haven't really registered with me, however some comments recently made me wonder if there were more at SAB than avg for some reason. Glad to hear this isn't the case. A large number in the pool at all times would concern me but if that isn't the case good to know.

OMG last week two BC lifeguards were saving the life of a little duckling that was getting picked on by a bigger duck. The took the long red floating device they hold while seated in their chairs and made a barrier around the duckling while a guest help shoo the big duck out of the pool. I'd say those lifeguards take their job pretty seriously!!!

Then I was at the DVC member pool at the BC and in flew two ducks no one seamed to mind their presents in the pool.

The use of swim diapers and swim pants might give users, parents, and pool staff a false sense of security regarding fecal contamination. Even the CDC references that swim diapers do not prevent waste from entering into the pool.

Ducks at the BC are normally sited around Hannahs as already noted, which is the area least visited by pool guest. It is also the run off area of the pool. Ducks in pools are a common problem for pool owners. Overall, most germs in bird droppings are killed by chlorine within minutes in a well-maintained pool. The key is pool maintenance.
