I purchased three popular books on pools from Amazon. Of the three, the Sunset book was clearly the most useful in helping us to decide where to put the pool, how to build it, which options to choose, and how to landscape it. My least favorite book, Pool Idea Book by Tauton, had more photos of pools but less instruction. I also recommend Pools & Spas by David Short.

With a subtitle of "everything you need to know to design and landscape a pool" this recent release from Sunset Books attempts to be the one guide you will ever need. It does the job very well depicting pools and spas to dream of where money is not an issue. Along with beautiful pictures of pools and spas in fantastic landscaped settings, it provides plenty of practical and detailed advice to help the homeowner in every stage of the process. From planning your pool or spa in term of cost, location, equipment and other factors such as design and use, to construction and maintenance, this 240 page book covers the subject and all its many possibilities.

Very Few Pool books available to help with ideas for designing one. This was helpful. I was able to show and tell my poolbuilder some ideas that worked.

I was looking for something with more detailed information about the common pool equipment on the market and how it works. Good for aesthetic planning.

this was a gift for my friend who was thinking about putting a pool in her yard. She said it had lots of good information.

OK, but a bit too old style for us.

Not a good book. Should have just looked at pictures on the internet.
