From Steve: I remember very clearly flipping through pool and spa magazines when I was a kid, sitting in the pool service truck on the way to a jobsite. At the time I wanted to work on pools like you see in the magazines...not the 16x32' kidney shaped vinyl liner pools that I had been renovating with the family business. I would not have guessed that I would go on to build those pools, and ones even better, before becoming the person actually in the magazines I used to read. It is very much a feather in my cap that these magazines and publications reach out to me for my opinions as an expert within this industry and I am proud to be able to provide content that they, and their readers, want to see. The publications you see listed above represent the full circle of my life as a pool and spa expert. The only place left to go from here would be to star in a Holmes on Homes style TV show dedicated towards helping people with nightmare swimming pool problems.
