  1. We are renting a vacation home in Guatemala. In the kitchen is a free-standing water filter which holds 22 liters of water. It was already filled when we arrived and we simply top it off with the non-potable Guatemalan tap water as we use it. I did some research on the product and it's quite interesting. I found a Mexican site for the product as well (https://ecofiltro.mx/) but have never seen it locally. While many of us have UV or other water treatments in our homes, the average Mexican household does not. The waste of materials and energy in the constant delivery of garrafones may one day end in Mexico. https://ecofiltro.com/en The filtering unit is produced out of 3 natural materials, clay, sawdust and colloidal silver. Together these materials have the following characteristics: Clay creates micro channels within the inner walls of the filtering unit and catches all contaminants that the water contains, such as solids, BACTERIA AND PARASITES. Sawdust becomes activated carbon and removes the bad smell, taste and turbidity of water coming from any source (stream, river, well, lake or pond). Colloidal silver is impregnated on the surface of the ceramic filter after it has been fired in the kiln. Colloidal silver is a bactericide used worldwide to purify water and has no side effects. This serves as a second protector to neutralize the contaminants.
  2. Has anyone used one of these pumps that deliver water from the aljibe to the house that does not use a separate pressure tank? The premise is that the pump has a small amount of water in its own little tank and when someone in the house turns on a faucet, the pump turns on delivering steady pressure until the faucet is closed. With a pressure tank the pump starts when the tank pressure drops below 20 and then stops when the tank pressure reaches 40. Using the booster pump the pump runs only when water is being used. In theory the pump run times should be the same when using the same amount of water.
  3. Is there anywhere locally that one can take a sample of their tap water and have it tested for bacterial levels/types, heavy metals, tds, etc..I thought there was a lab near the airport but seem to remember that they would not accept private clients..Any thoughts??
  4. Our water is being stolen by our next door neighbor using a hose attached to one of our garden taps. What concerns me is that: i.) the water supply in La Villita, which is part of La Foresta, is not unlimited; and ii) La Foresta management apparently think that I am responsible for it if I do nothing to stop it. Of course we have shut off the outside tap (which is a nuisance) but that only solves the problem so far - will the next step be breaking in when we are out? We also have other water sources: a pond and a fountain. The individuals involved do not pay their community fees and therefore their water supply may been cut down to a dribble which gives you some idea of the type of people we are dealing with. Can anyone suggest an appropriate solution to stop them doing this?
  5. What are the best reverse osmosis water filtration systems and who installs them?
