  1. Just a quick question.  A few years ago our then property managers arranged for our Saltillo tiles to be refinished and sealed.  I can’t remember the problem other than we were told they need to be resealed periodically and we wanted more of a sheen.  Well, work was done by someone who clearly didn’t know what they were doing and now they are peeling and look awful.  I seem to remember someone warning against a particular product when sealing Saltillo (after our mess, of course☹️), and now I need to be sure that doesn’t happen again. Does anyone know what NOT to use?  The name of the product that should be used would be helpful as well.  Gracias!

  2. Hi everyone, I am dealing with a significant propane leak.  I have updated a suspicious water heater, replaced the regulator and had a small leak repaired.  I have had people investigate and have found no leaks, but I’m having to fill our large tank about every six weeks whether we are there or not.  Can anyone recommend a really good plumber?  

  3. I have many, many plants in containers on three floors of our house in Ajijic. Some of the plants need to be transplanted, many need to be moved or discarded. Our mirador has some very large cactus we would like removed. Does anyone know of someone who could help us get the job done?  Obviously we need some muscle, but also someone with knowledge of the plants and a little English would be great.  A garden center would be good because a lot of the plants to be discarded are fine, we just don’t have room for them. Any thoughts?

  4. Thanks to everyone for your input. I don’t mean to be vague, I’m just not very knowledgeable, but the prices seem high to me.  In trying to do some research, It did seem that most units were far less expensive than the quote I received, but I am not a plumber. I had a very nice guy who came over and told me this. I did not want to think he was taking advantage, but I don’t know what else to think. When I say double, we have a double boiler system on our mirador which feed two floors and then a tank on first floor.  The double boiler is very expensive, but the most I’ve seen it on line is 16000 pesos, not 28000.  My water heaters work but I am losing tons of gas and since they are old, we thought that might be the reason. Thanks again everyone!
