  1. Always interested in alternatives: we are NOB so no Ojo, if u have contact info that would be appreciated! Tks in advance.
  2. Different Airlines different Policies, good advice
  3. If you are flying any Battery powered tool may be confiscated as you try & clear security with carryon or in checked bags. The old exploding lithium battery problems created problems for non lithium batteries as well. Better to bring them down in a vehicle.
  4. In another life we maintained a sail boat with "Whale Hand Pumps." Pump lower unit is connected with plastic tubing through the top of the Garrafon. Voila. This does require a counter top to secure the pump. We have this set-up in our cabin for drinking water under the kitchen counter. https://www.westmarine.com/buy/whale-pumps--vertical-self-priming-hand-pump--255427

  8. The location near Oh-Shirts was their Body Shop for Years, possible consolidation in the works
  9. Go Solar, are they not both North of the Bus Station? We have used José Luis Gonzalez Aluminios Y Vidrios North of the Bus Station East Side. This year 2018 he was very busy with a large housing project near Guad which was dictating his schedule, but he did tell us. I have given up on Viluma, many different reasons mostly attempts to inflate previously quoted jobs beyond any rational amount.
  10. a French haute cuisine restaurant using a British potato? If Google is correct "Marie Piper" potatoes are aka "Maris Piper potatoes"
  11. There is a bamboo equivalent that some kind sister-in-law gifted us a few yrs ago. Works beautifully, sorry have no idea were to source it?

  13. Santa Margarita in Riberas is certainly long over due for major repairs. Believe it or not there are actual cobble stones & curbs under all the muck!
  14. Most Interesting comments, Tks! Over the weekend the pool water was moving before the pump started, but no wind or diving birds having a bath? This yr overnight the pool water temp might drop 1-2° no pool cover? Pool temp is the same as Aljibe water temp? Ezzie I will follow up with Simapa, Tomas I am going to have the Aljibe cleaned again & will have the pump wiring inspected, I know the pump casing is warm/hot to the touch.
  15. Aljibe is under the carport so little direct soar gain/heating. I could drain to lower the level below the float then place a bucket under the outlet to take a reading? The last time the Aljibe was cleaned the plumber had a problem with the pump & I really do not know if they knew what they were doing. The temp at the outlet water is the same as around the pump, not conclusive so I believe I will test the incoming water temp in a bucket. We had large seismic event here a few yrs ago so anything is possible, until we can eliminate all other sources. Strange but I always wished for radiant heating, now i may be the lucky guy except?
  16. Has anyone experienced this? Water Temperature is in the cistern . Either the water line or Aljibi is on a thermal or my submersible pump is heating a 10,000 liter cistern aka Aljibi. Who to call for inspection & repair. Tks
  17. Perfect I'm in that area tomorrow, many tks to both of you. I have often speculated to myself, how do I know that I'm getting Roja in the tank?
  18. Any where in Chapala, Riberas, SAT or Ajijic. Tks tried Riberas today nada
  19. I have a Free Canon MP560 c/w 10+ cartridges, 3 larger dbl black cartridges included, all in sealed cello. The printer requires a new print head, the original was clogged from lack of use. eBay has many listed QY6-0073 Printhead For Canon iP3600 iP3680 MP540 MP560 MP568 MP620 $24.98± I have removed & cleaned the original head several times without any success. Removal is simple the U tube videos are straight fwd pm me for contact info
  20. Does anyone have this site listed somewhere, used it last year with some success. The on-line message had concluded with a statement that the actual decal would be mailed. 1 year later went to their office on Delgado & the staff member went to a back desk that held about 150 200 decals, pulled mine out & flipped it to me. Well now I know! They kept my receipt that I had been holding in case we were stopped. So no web Site Data
  21. In Mexico artificial turf is translated into Lava Rock, comes in a multitude of sizes from basically dust to a pea stone sized nugget to great big chunks. Trust me much much nicer than AT. No cutting or watering necessary. Place potted plantings were ever your heart desires. I hate grass especially AT. If you go this route place a water permeable weed barrier down under the lava rock.
  22. Two tv's hooked up, 1 is OK, the other refuses, keeps saying I'm Not Connected to the Internet? Both are Smart WiFi TV's Re-input my Password, on a similar problem last week I had to reset Netflix. Same TV. Whats up? Today the wife changed the input to HDMI3 it's actually on Wifi! Netflix now asked for email & password, last evening nada!
  23. Part of the problem with solar panels is their efficiency at various pump speeds. We have solar panels & a continuously variable speed pump, fully programable. If we run it at 900 rpm for 2-4hrs the solar is extremely efficient. Think about the time the water has to heat within the solar panels, longer is better. Water temp can easily go from 76° to 81°±
