I see that too :fingerroll:

Have tried to find out what is going on but it would appear that Cassie Nel might not be renewing the site and domain anymore :thinking:

Well I am sure that the earlier comments made on this thread covering ex iFlyAfrica members, still stand.

It seems that Cassie is fighting a bit of a battle, his advertisers hasn't paid the bills, hence offline. There were quite a few comments made on FB to Cassie asking on costs etc, but no answer.

Bell 407 was trying to contact Cassie. Cassie hasnt said much, but did sort of mention that he had a bit of a fight on his hands, as his Advertiser who was paying had not paid the guys hosting. I speak completely under correction with regards to my statement. I dont want any legal hassles in my life.

Cheers from a rainy Cape Town. My pool full for the first time in 9 months. Now to organise a way to backwash and recover the water

I have the same objective in the k@kplaas. I bought a tank with the intention of recovering the backwash water for watering the garden etc.

I have bought 2 x 210L tanks. Will hopefully modify them this weekend and send a photo. Backwash into the top tank through some stone and then feeding into the next with more stone and pool filter sand, back into the pool.

My brother has a weekend hobby of removing iron and other muck from boreholes/wellpoints. Can drink the water it is so pure. Great for a pool but I dont have any of those water sources. He has a FB page Aerate to Seperate

I had a convo with Cassie about FA and the final nail went into the coffin when the sponsor didn't pay as promised. There's a bill of just over US$1800 due to the hosting company which Cassie is stuck with.

RIP FA.
