I went there today for the first time and they were SO nice to help me figure out what was wrong with my pool and what stuff to use. I have always used Wal-Mart chemicals for my pool for the past few years and could never get it regulated. They have definately earned my business because of the courteous way I was treated and the reasonable prices.

No she didn't. You are talkig about the other Propst. Sabrina and Ben own the Dexter, one. My son worked for them and I worked with her before. They are awesome people and hard workers. They will do you right. I laughed when I read that. There is no way she ran off with someone else.

Charley and I have had our problems and that is no lie. We compete to serve our customers. He has had to cover people that I was not able to get to and I have done the same. The rub comes when we think that we could have gotten to someone but did not and the other one has taken the customer and just very simply seen to the need. You can poke fun and run your mouth if you like It is no big mystery that there are a lot of people out there that are not getting to see either one of us and or any of the other 15 pool companyís in the area none of which could handle the full load of service and new installs in this area if they wanted I donít care what anyone says we all compete just like this country was founded to do that is the only thing keeping the prices on pool repair as low as they are. It is expensive to run a business in this area for the fact we can not run year round and the over head is high. You people like us to be here but some donít want to pay their part of the rent. I put this store in at the request of my customers and they help me pay the rent, electric Cindyís wages and the stocking of the store. The store and the business are yours to use and enjoy if you want to be part of the business you have to pay for the part that you use. I do I do not get anything for free I do not even have a pool myself I could not take care of it or enjoy it I just do not have the time I am out late almost every night working on your pools so you can enjoy that which I can not have myself. Make no mistake I am in this to pay my way through life even if that high standard of living is eating cold pizza at three in the morning because I am up worrying about pools, that are a luxury I might add these are not a necessity in life, That I will never swim in our be able to enjoy they are in your backyards for your uses and I am just here to help you keep them in running order. I can not speak for the other pool companies but my main objective is to get everyone swimming so if there is something like a slow leak or a faulty gauge, or vacuuming a pool that does not have your pool down it my not be on the priority list with a liner replacement that wonít hold water or a pump that has stopped
I would like to thank you all for the help that you have given us to get the store up and running if you did not use it, it would go away. I myself have no need for it I was working out of my shop just fine and people would have to get their parts and chemicals if they could catch me I was just as busy than as I am now but it is nice to have this parts and supply well for you all because a lot of you are not only my customers you are my friends and I love having it there for you.
As far as me and my cousin he is still my cousin and I still help him and I know he will still help me, he has bought things out of the store and rented equipment from me, but we are both still in competition for work and I have a name of my own to hold up and I can not leave someone hanging out there if they thing that Propst pools is not going to service them I am! Some people know the difference and some people donít but I am not responsible fort his work and he is not responsible for mine. And like I said before he has covered jobs that I could not get to.
This a very competitive business and that is why none of us have gotten extremely big only the older companies are the larger ones that has just came with time and I am growing . My business is not as large as my dads were but it is getting there. We have a little over 300 customers in a 150 mile radius that is a lot of ground to cover; we have gone as far as Thayer, MO South of Blytheville, AR, North of Perryville, MO and Paducah, KY

As far as what you know and we need to be careful because you know you sound like a grade school child you need to be careful this morning and make sure to ask someone if your shoes are on the right feet that is what my 4 year old does you would not want to embarrass yourself further, you know so much. If you donít like me I really could not care less but you could come tell me if you are man enough. I could use some suggestions on improving myself if you have anything constructive to say donít hide behind your keyboard.
Thanks again everyone

Well any reputable business knows better than to reply to anything said on topix.com as it is just a website for crazy people who have nothing better to do. And as far as Cindy goes, well how about some extra schooling so she can learn to spell correctly and maybe even format a sentence?
