A mine of information for the pool owner, money well spent.

As a brand new pool owner, I wish I had this book as I was overseeing the pool construction!!! I found the explanations most informative. Helped me to understand the complexities of water chemistry. Great drawings and pictures! Covers everything from minor maintenance to major fixes. (some I would never think of tackling myself)

Having purchased this book I found that it lacked uptodate material on such things as Salt Systems, latest types of port valves and specific relevance to European types of domestic swimming pools. I also found the contents of the book unnecessarily hard going. There are, however, chapters which are useful for the more technical minded. Not a book for a novice D.I.Y.

Great book. I consulted this book extensively while consulting with my pool builder...I even bought him a copy. If you like delving into things, and don't have a Phd hydrodynamics, aquatic chemistry, or electrical engineering, this book will submerge you in swimming pools but not drown you. I also liked that he is opinionated...if he didn't like something, he said so and told you logically why. The book might help you avoid costly mistakes. If you want to buy just one book on swimming pools this is it. One criticism I have is the lack of detailed, critical discussion of alternative sanitizers i.e. sanitizers otherthan chlorine.

I have purchased 4 books in search of practical reference for pool maintenance. This book is outstanding. In this genuine book the author offers a comprensive introduction and reference based on experience and intuition. It is well written and easy to understand.

This book covers just about everything about maintaining and/or upgrading your pool equipment. It has very technical but clear information as well as basic troubleshooting problems. I am in process of upgrading my motor/filter and this book will save me money and aggrevation by doing it myself. You can often get wrong or misleading information from so called experts but this book will set you on the right track and you will become your own expert.

Needed to learn about pool maintainance quickly, this is teaching us very well. It's a wee bit technical for beginners but it is giving us the information we need.
For the average housholder, I would say this is too detailed and lacks the check-lists one needs when new to pool maintenance.
