    does anyone know what happened to mark aka crookm11?

    i've been posting a couple of years now since i got a intex pool for the grandkids and every since last summer this guy has vanished from the forum. he was a inspiration to me in doing the things i have done with my intex pool. just wondering if anyone knew why he stopped posting or what happened to him?

    Well, I seem to remember he was getting everything lined up/completed for retirement!

    Hopefully he'll be back on with us when he is caught up

    He has been an inspiration to many

    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    Hi jsf0656,

    I am still alive and kicking!!! Over the winter I started my retirement transition from the Army. I am now on my terminal leave and will be fully retired on 31 May. I have been taking Real Estate courses to become a Real Estate agent here in Texas. I will be taking the exam this coming month. I have started to get my pool up and running for the upcoming season. The water stayed crystal clear the whole winter. I have to start getting the chems up so the water will stay that way now that it is heating up. I will start to be reagular on the forum now. Can't wait to start helping where I can.

    Yes -- welcome back Mark! I'm about ready to install the 1600 pump and swg that I bought from WM for that unbelievable deal. Copy/pasting all the different instruction posts so I can get it up and running this weekend.

    Congratulations on your retirement! I wish I was looking at retirement as well...but it will be a few more years.
