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 :goodjob:

Hi jsf0656,

I am still alive and kicking!!! :whoot: 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. :-(
