How to Get Rid of Swimming Pool Algae

by Rudy Stankowitz (Author), Richard A Falk Consulting (Editor), Isaac Miller, Ph.D. Microbiology (Editor)

This is a great book for anyone who takes care of swimming pools❗

A MUST HAVE that applies to pools of any shape or size, whether you go on to take the certification class or not, you’ll have fewer bouts with green, yellow, and black algae 🦠with this ‘How to’ book on your shelf.

“Rudy, your field samples are very interesting – and rare. There is almost nothing published on the varieties of algae in pools… If you focus on black “algae,” you will be the first person in nearly 40 years to document it. That would be really, really cool.” – Dr. Roy D. Vore, Ph.D., Microbial physiologist, Senior Consultant, Vore & Associates LLC, previously Technology Manager, BioLab inc.

Award Winning CPO Instructor Rudy Stankowitz
I began teaching and consulting due to an injury that pulled me out of the field (swimming pool service), and I immediately felt it clicked. The classes have been just a small part of it. For me, the best part comes from all of the people I have had the opportunity to meet either here in the US or abroad. Those relationships, the friendships I have gained, and the experiences we have shared have made these classes an awesome and rewarding journey.

Now, a little over halfway through my 6th year as an instructor, I wanted to take a moment to mention how lucky I am to have met the folks I have met along the way and to have received accolades each year for doing something I love to do. Thank you! – Rudy Stankowitz
