 Hundreds of Tadpoles in swimming pool- how do I get them out?

I need help! We would like to open our pool for the summer, but there are hundreds of tadpoles in there. We have a creek and small ponds that we could move them to, but we could spend the rest of the summer just trying to catch them!

I don’t want to kill them. But I would like to open the pool for the kids to use. Ideas, please!

Thanks,
Luka Blue

I catch tadpoles all the time. Just use a net-- but if there is that many, you may want to consider making/buying a trap that has a funnel, so they go in a large opening but need to find they’re way out of the small end of the funnel trap.
If you lived by me, i would LOVE to catch them xD but of course, you probably don’t anyway.
