  1. I have followed Juan to 2or3 different companies. He came by to fill up our 300 liter tank & on making change for $1,858 propane bill he short changed me when he handed me 3x20mxp. I pointed this out to him & he apologized & immediately counted out 5x20 or 100mxp. Later on recounting the monies, all 20's I realized he had overpaid us by 20mxp. I should have rec'd 142mxp I held 160mxp. I will call him & ask him to come buy the next time he is in the neighbourhood. Life is always interesting here in Chapala! To error is human, I do it constantly these days!
  2. I'm for impact resistance, cardboard tube is resistant & light for shipping, will survive the occasional pitch during frequent loading, unloading. If you have ever worked with PVC, it shatters on impact, especially at the ends. If you must use it, buy "schedule 40" the thicker heavier version designed for pressure systems and stuff both ends with lots of old reporter. No worries if you are carrying the tube on board. Happy New Year to all! What a beautiful morning!
  3. West of Plaza Buginvilla on the side st just above Alex's Pasta Bar
  4. And speaking to non issues, you seem to be very responsive?
  5. I have had good success with the hardware next to Sunrise for supplies. For technical issues I have always appreciated the skilled service staff at JP Homeservices.
  6. I was curious if privatization had any significant impact without driving all over. Guess not! Have used the Pemex by Soriano but always coming from the lake side. The quietest one always seems to be at the top of the Libermento on the way to Guad. Thanks all
  7. Finally got around to paying the Fine. Tom gates was right, City Hall on the left inside. Do not know what the original fine was, however after much calculations between 2 cashiers I paid $124mxn, I' m guessing it might have been a lot less if I had gone in sooner as they appeared to be counting days since the I was ticketed? And I did not get another ticket!
  8. Figured as much, so didn't go near the link. They are quite easy to spot in my opinion. aka 1 post, yrs old posting, link included, not much of relevance in tone or context. Blocked
  9. Threw 2 x1" Cloro Pucks into the alibi a couple of days ago. Went back the next day to see how clear the water was. 3.3m down there they where
  10. Thanks Tom, with my luck I will get another ticket while paying this one.
  11. Got a parking ticket in Chapala the other day. No signs but what the heck. Anyone know where I pay this? Do we still get a discount for early Payment. No fine listed just Articulo 99 Fraccion 11
  12. Telmex Ajijic office stated that they were only informed this morning. CFE cut the power to the Telmex Terminal Junction Box?
  13. Does not appear on my statements! Yet?
  14. We work to provide you with a better service Av. Hidalgo west road north side Riberas del Pilar. Nov 14, 09: 00-18: 00
  15. Start at the well, how do get the water to the house, go to any tap then explain all the devices he is installing, as an example we have 7± different stages: pump pressure tank 2 filters UV purification zeolite filter water softener
  16. A colour wheel's a great starter. Actually if they enlarge yours they can use it! Then buy some small cans, pint size & test before you splurge on the big buckets. Trying to remember what we were paying for Sherwin-Williams but it is not cheap by the us Gal. Anyone bought any lately
  17. Is your option verified, they have/had another facility further east as reported by fordtruckman
  18. Contact Bernardo at the Palapa Eventos, Tahawi by the Lake. Take the Boulevard down to the Lake from Mums restaurant in Riberas. Ours is getting on in age, Corn Borers or Powder post Beetles view Palapas as a feast. Spraying is necessary to prevent the infestation from getting out of hand. As the wood ages & drys out the problem disappears, expect tiny little holes in the wood & Frass on the floor. Use the wrong wood species and everything falls down. Bernardo knows his trade. Good info from Ferret above
  19. Always interested in alternatives: we are NOB so no Ojo, if u have contact info that would be appreciated! Tks in advance.
  20. Different Airlines different Policies, good advice
  21. 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.
  22. 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
