Pleatco announces Perfect Pool Guy & Gal
And the winners are ... Michael Baker of Ambience Pool Service and Kristen Melo of Preserve Pools
The 2021 winners of Pleatco’s annual Perfect Pool Guy and Gal search have been announced to be Michael Baker, of Ambiance Pool Service & Supplies, in Tuscon, Arizona, and Kristen Melo, of Preserve Pools, in Summerville, Tennessee.
Baker, a runner-up in last year’s Perfect Pool Guy search, put a great deal of effort into making sure his nomination wound up at the top of the rankings.
“A little more than 15 years ago I was cleaning more than 100 pools a week,” Baker said. “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.”
This year’s Perfect Pool Gal, Kristen Melo, said she was overwhelmed with gratitude to have been selected to receive the Pleatco Award.
“I never would have thought I could be selected for something so honorable,” Melo said. “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
