The Ultimate Pool Maintenance Manual

Author: Terry Tamminen

First line: Dustin Hoffman, Madonna, Stacy Keach, Dick Clark, Barbra Streisand, Charles Bronson, David Letterman, Rich Little, Carroll O'Connon, Lou Gosset, Dyan Cannon, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Walt Disney, Martin Sheen, Sting, Goldie Hawn, Olivia Newton-John, Roy Orbison, Diana Ross, George C. Scoot, Dick Van Dyke, Bruce Willis.

Why you should read this book: Tamminen is the Malibu Pool Man to the Stars, with twenty-five years of experience in maintaining water features for what is surely a very fussy clientele. At 693 pages, this manual answers every question you could possibly have about your pool, hot tub, or outdoor fountain, as well as a thousand questions it never occured to you to ask. In fact, it is written with the water maintenance professional, rather than the lay user, in mind.

Why you shouldn't read this book: Dense and occasionally technical, it might be overkill if you only want to know why your water is green or what kind of filter to buy.
