rather large kiddie pool and mosquitoes

Is there anything you can do to keep from having to empty it every other day? It takes about an hour to fill so I know it's a ton of water to be wasting like that but I don't want my kids swimming with baby mosquitoes!!

  • cover it or find a filter that keeps water moving. still water is what the mosquitos are attracted to.

  • After your done with it for the day....use a net to scoop any debris out of it then cover it with a tarp.

  • cover it, spa stores sell chemicals that are used in spas that can be used in small pools to keep bacteria and other nasties including mosquito larva from growing.
