I use old CD's to keep birds away from my garden.
There are plenty of free ones available. Just hang them with twine from anything so they spin freely and the moving mirrors they make scare the birds away.

Rubber snakes are the best 'scare-crows' I've found. If they are perching in trees and causing the mess, you can toss the snakes up there and they will hang.

Once, we had them so bad, and having lots of trees, we couldn't afford enough rubber snakes to cover. Had a brainstorm and got old panty hose and cut the legs off, and sort of loosely stuffed them with newspaper.. and pitched them into the trees. That worked, too. Seems it is just the shape of a snake, not the realistic looks, that scares them.

I suspect placing toy snakes around the edge of the pool might be a good thing.

Hope this helps.
