    I'd like to welcome Waste back to TFP!

    We've had lots of new members join over the past couple of months, but those of you who have been around for a while may have noticed one of our most helpful contributors has been absent for a while.

    Waste (Ted) and I had a difference of opinion that resulted in a temporary parting of ways. I'm very happy to say that we have put our differences behind us and we can all look forward to more of his valuable advice. I'm sure the TFP members will benefit greatly from his return.

    This being pool season, I don't know how swamped Ted is so he may not be back on right away but says he's eager to be back with us at TFP.

    Welcome back Ted!
    TFP Founder

    My Pool: 13K gal IG gunite with 7' spa, Pentair Cartridge Filter, Intellichlor IC40 SWG, Polaris 280 Cleaner, TF-100 Test Kit w/ salt test.

    people have differences...that is the way with the world works...(and CO WORKERS! I'm not going to get started)

    What's best is when you confront those issues and get past them...relationships end up being better than before!

    I'm glad things are right with the world...want to come to my office and fix ours

    Good to have you back Waste!

    Hey Ted, should I welcome you back? Because I do not consider you as having left us. Good to have you with us because it's such a pleasure to read your down to earth replies and feedback as with a limited few others in the forum (you know who).

    Horray to Ted.

    And a big to SeanB for bring him back. A good Admin is one who do very well with his site but a better Admin is one who can accomodate complex circumstances for the betterment of all.
