  1. My purification system consists of two large filters-one paper the other foam or cord and an UV light. When I got it I didn't realize that you could get a sand filter instead of what I have. The sand filter seems like a great idea as you don't have to change the filters regularly you just back wash it instead. Can anyone who has a sand filter comment on the pros and cons of it?
  2. The common name of the spaghetti plant is Dodder. Genus Cuscuta. http://www.fcps.edu/islandcreekes/ecology/dodder.htm The one with the orange honeysuckle like flower is mistletoe. Genus Psittacanthuus http://lakechapalagardenclub.org/chapalatreeservice.html Both are evident right now but are quite different.
  3. A number of other wells also have hot spring water. They put some test meters in the Raquet Club to see how they would work but a number of them failed-I heard they failed because they used the wrong kind. About 18 properties (out of 350) are on meters now.
  4. You are understanding things. Remember there aren't just one or two different water systems there are hundreds. There are wells all over the place. Some systems have meters some don't. A well may serve one property or hundreds.
  5. I went to Rudy's store today. They don't sell the granite sealers and polishes. So what to use?
  6. Amutio in Ajijic or what used to be called Ace (now called Calzada) hardware in west Chapala.
  7. From my experience I would take Estilo (sp?) Junior (not Junior's) off that list.
  8. Good stuff to know. Where are Chopo and Dilabim?
  9. So east of Mia's and west of across from Farmacia Guadalajara. More like across the carretera from Actinver bank.
  10. Has anyone else tried the Lisa trifocal lens implants that he recommends for cataracts.
  11. Maybe they are no longer single. The last post there was in 2014 July.
  12. Does anyone have an answer to this?
  13. I sure got my wires crossed several years ago. I'm not quite sure how but it happened but it doesn't matter as now I know-Wayne and Dale.
  14. Odd, I went to a lecture given by Dale and I was surprised that he was male. It certainly wasn't a personal attack-I don't know where you get that from.
  15. FYI Dale is a he. If you are going to pontificate try to get your facts right.
  16. A friend applied for her passport in early December using photos that were taken by a different place in Chapala. The photos were rejected so it ending up taking her 3 months to get her new passport.
  17. These are the only places that the Canadian consulate in Guadalajara recommends; Foto Studio del Lago Av. Madero #238-C Chapala Tel: (376) 765-3548 malvagarmx (at) yahoo.com.mx Estudio Zaragoza Lopez Cotilla #290 Chapala Tel: (376) 765-3495
  18. There are billions more people around now and many more polluting industrys and farms. We produce synthetic products now that take forever to break down. The list goes on and on. Our water systems naturally get contaminated by all this. Our great grand parents didn't have to contend with this.
  19. The French bakery is open again. Different French owners but they have many of the same products.
  20. If you watch how they service your system a few times you can easily do it yourself. I change my own filters and bulb. In doing so I see how dirty the filters are and how often they need changing. My dogs drink my "purified water" or unpurified or the salt water pool or the fountain or mud puddles. At my previous house on the ocean the dogs drank anything until the city well got invaded by some ocean water and they wouldn't touch city water.
