The annual Pleatco PoolGuy/Gal Search is an innovative way to honor the hardworking men and women of the pool and spa service industry. With more than 100 contestants, the 2021 entrants were as impressive as ever.
This year, Kristen Melo of Preserve Pools, Summerville, SC, won the prestigious title. In response to winning the award, Kristen stated, "I am overwhelmed with gratitude to have been selected to receive the Pleatco Perfect Pool Gal 2021 Award. I never would have thought I could be selected for something so honorable. I am so humbled and shocked to have my work recognized in this way by so many in the pool industry! Many hours went into building my business and learning as much as I have, and it means so much to me that the work that I am so passionate about also resonates with others." Kristen continued by saying "I didn t get to the point I have without help. I would like to thank, Erik Knight with Orenda, my parents for their non-stop support, my children for their love and last, but not least, all of my loyal customers whom I absolutely would not be here without. I hope that this recognition of my work can serve as an inspiration to others in the field."
Michael Baker, Preserve Pools LLC Tucson, Arizona, had been a runner up last year and put a great deal of effort into making sure his nomination wound up at the top of the rankings. Michael remarked, "A little more than 15 years ago I was cleaning more than 100 pools a week. I knew it was time to make a change, so I hired my first full time pool technician. Since that day, it s been a heck of a ride. Learning new facets of the industry, trying to better my team, and be the best boss I can be to my employees. I still learn something new every day. The Pleatco Perfect Pool Guy 2021 Award is truly an honor. The award reflects all the hard work put out by the entire Ambiance Team. I would not be in this position without them and the support of my family. I d like to give a special thanks to Pleatco, Pentair, GENESIS / PHTA and Aqua Magazine for honoring all the hard-working Poolguys and Poolgals throughout the country. "
