By Allen J Wilson of Studies In Work H&S Consultants

Allen Wilson is the author of pool plant books previously published by the ISRM and ISPAL(formerly ILAM)




He has written for various trade magazines and has had in excess of 100 articles in print at various times including both of the highest selling national newspapers. He has also appeared on television and radio giving his opinion on recreational water matters.

This 80-page A4 handbook is written in his inimitable style and contains valuable information for anybody with any involvement in pools. Although only a year old, it is now being reprinted for the third time with a host of changes and a new chapter

Free Taster is available online here.

This handbook will as well as being on general sale be the course book for the ISPE pool and spa plant operators’ course.

Enclosed is the opening chapter.

This book will be a reference book for the industry and the adverts will have the major advantage over magazines adverts that generally have a life of just a month or so in that they will stay in the eye of pool people indefinitely.

Here’s what we’ve heard……
