Frogs in Pool

Asked August 1, 2019, 10:57 AM EDT

I have 50 - 75 frogs in my poo (most are in the skimmer)l each morning for a couple weeks, I remove them daily. Do frogs pose any health risks to swimmers using the pool.?

These are all recently metamorphed Leopard Frogs and they do not pose any health risk (unless they are dying in large numbers, in which case bacteria from their decomposing bodies might). I'd look into a "small animal poolsaver" like this one:
