In April 2005 I knew nothing about pools. By April 2006 many people considered me to be an authority. How did this happen?

The short answer is by reading, asking and doing. I resurrected a swamp, diagnosed and replaced a bad pump impeller, and repiped the pump plumbing.

The long answer is a bit less obvious. I have several skills that eased fixing and learning about my pool. Most of these skills are part of the Universal Troubleshooting Process, a process I discovered, documented and refined over the last 20 years. Here are some of the skills the Universal Troubleshooting Process helps develop:
I've written several books about the Universal Troubleshooting Process. The best place to start is by reading Twenty Eight Tales of Troubleshooting.

Rapid Learning

Another process I use is the Rapid Learning Process. This is a terminology-first, experimentation driven learning process producing quick mastery of technical systems (including pools). You can see a block diagram of the Rapid Learning Process here.
