About the Author:

Merry Wise: A Leader in the Pool and Spa Industry For more than 36 years, Merry Wise has been co-owner of Wise Pools, an award-winning swimming pool/spa construction and retail company located near Houston, Texas. She is also a professional writer, publishing articles in Aqua Magazine, the leading national swimming pool and spa trade publication, in addition to contributing to Houston House and Home, The Houston Chronicle, The Conroe Courier and other local and national publications. She is a graduate of the University of Houston and has done postgraduate work at Sam Houston State University. As a high school teacher, she taught English, history and English as a Second Language. Merry has worked for many years in all aspects of the pool and spa business. Wise Pools is an Aqua 100 Hall of Fame company, selected five times in a row as one of Aqua Magazine s 100 Best Pool Companies in the U.S. Merry is proud to have been recognized with the Better Business Bureau s Torch of Excellence Award, the Chamber small business award, Community College District small business award, and over 80 swimming pool and spa design awards, among Wise Pool Company's many honors. As Merry helped customers solve their problems with their pools in her retail pool supply stores, she was constantly asked if there was a book available that would simplify the process for the pool owner- and so, when she semi-retired from the business, she wrote the kind of book she felt addressed the most-often-asked questions in a FUN way! In writing the book, she tried to address the issues as if the reader was enjoying a cup of gourmet coffee with her, visiting informally in her own store! The book even includes fun sections on choosing toys and games and entertaining around the pool! Merry is the mother of three grown children, three grandchildren and counting, and lives in a rural area near Houston, Texas.

Review:

"Anyone who's ever tried to make his or her way through a typical instruction manual knows humor and user-friendliness are usually in rare supply.....Wise's folksy manner has a way of simplifying what can be a rather dense subject matter." "Water chemistry, for example is likened to 'baking a cake', meaning anyone who can follow her simple set of instructions can handle it." "It seems as if Merry's got an opinion about nearly everything water-related, and those opinions are based around the idea that pools and spas should be, above all, fun." --Aqua Magazine, January 2004
