So far the pool has been open (not running, just cover off) for about a week and there have been three casualties. The first was a chipmunk that was floating slightly below the water line. He disintegrated when I removed him with the skimmer, which means he must have been there for a while.
Today I fished out two more chipmunks from the pool, a small one and a large one. Both sort of smelled and were slightly bloated but stayed in tact. Disgusting. I don't recall the pool being quite as deadly last summer. I think we killed one toad and one chipmunk. Hopefully this is all we get for the summer, two per week is a little excessive.
The pool guy comes tomorrow to get us all set up and running.
