  1. Does not appear on my statements! Yet?
  2. We work to provide you with a better service Av. Hidalgo west road north side Riberas del Pilar. Nov 14, 09: 00-18: 00
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Is your option verified, they have/had another facility further east as reported by fordtruckman
  6. 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
  7. Always interested in alternatives: we are NOB so no Ojo, if u have contact info that would be appreciated! Tks in advance.
  8. Different Airlines different Policies, good advice
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. Good News, time to go in when we return. Tks for the heads up
  12. only yes if Inapam cards are available, we go in 2-3 times a yr & have never been able to get the card. Response is always the same come back on ______ u fill in the blanks
  13. He is/was good friends with Jackie@H2olé u might try contacting him? 331.394.4413 is the last # I have
  14. The location near Oh-Shirts was their Body Shop for Years, possible consolidation in the works
  15. 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.
  16. a French haute cuisine restaurant using a British potato? If Google is correct "Marie Piper" potatoes are aka "Maris Piper potatoes"
  17. 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?

  19. 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!
  20. 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.
  21. 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 rad
  22. 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
  23. 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?
