Re: Advice on electricity

Are you referring to an ICP in your fuse box? Do you have a smart meter? If you have a Smart meter then it has an inbuilt ICP which should have been uprated via a software update when you changed contracts. This also means that the ICP in your fuse box is redundant and can be removed. Cheers Gerry S...

Re: Spanish mobile use from USA

As far as I know the most economical way of using a phone is with the watsup app as calls are free as long as you stay within WIFI zones Depends on your mobile phone provider. I'm with Vodafone here in Spain. I can use my data connection, on my mobile phone, and Whatsapp doesn't use any of the data...

Re: Seville-So Many Histories...

Yes, always buy a fridge magnet of the places we visit. :wave:
Since we have lived here in Spain we have been promising ourselves a visit to Seville.
Just booked, near El Corte Inglais in the centre, for next February to coincide with my birthday. :thumbup:

Re: Unplugging during thunderstorms?

For your router/ telephone cables buy a surge protector.
To protect the whole householder get a surge protector fitted to your house "fusebox".
Endessa now insist one is fitted on all new installations.

Re: Mains Water

Where I live, in the campo, the water is supplied by Aqualia. Practically all the pipes run above ground. That is the way they prefer them, easier to spot and repair leaks. If anybody wants to connect to the supply they can do provided they get a contract with them and have a meter installed. Cheers...

Clinica Rincon, Rincon de la Victoria

Some time ago Clinica Rincon, Rincon de la Victoria, was taken over by Vithas Salud. Not sure if they took over the other Clinica Rincon clinics. All the signs has been changed to Vithas Salud. Clinica Rincon, Rincon de la Victoria, was open for emergencies 24/7 but now only open 08:00 -22:00 Mon to...

Looks a useful site

Have a look at http://www.supportinspain.info/
It's not a chat type site like A.com is but a collection of links to official sites where you can get the official answer and advice.
Seems to be a well thought out and laid out site.

Re: Registration of S1 form

Whenever I or my wife have phoned Newcastle we have found them very helpful and knowledgeable. Also we have got through very quickly without being held in a queue.
If we had phoned the wrong department they put us through to the correct department.

Re: Registration of S1 form

Can only concur with the above three posters. If you have a S1 form then get registered with the Spanish health system now. No point of waiting till after Brexit as the S1 form might not be accepted, who knows. Those of us who have registered might, but hopefully not, be kicked out of the system, ag...

Re: Re ITV

Yes it seems to now only give a choice of Spanish or Dutch. It used to be available in English.
Yes it is periodica you click on.
When it gives you a date and time you can, as peteroldracer said, bring up a calendar and select your own date and time from the available times.
