Re: Roca toilet parts

Sorted. Went to the Proinco store. None in stock. Only one of their stores had the item. They had it by the till when we got there. A plus for service

Re: Roca toilet parts

Brilliant, thanks. The place nearVelez sounds perfect but too far out of our way. We will tryCosta’s Roca warehouse. If no luck then the Bricomart. Fall back plan is a new seat with soft close. Great suggestion. Last one we bought was for a Roca system too and included a poorly designed fitment to t...

Re: Seur and Amazon

How did you find out where your Amazon drop off point is please?

When I was last in the UK , I was very impressed with the locker set up at a local supermarket. Easy parking and open long hours .

Re: Roca toilet parts

Are you sure? It is quite a specific part to specific models for mounting the seat to the pan.

Ten years ago, we would have gone to the Roca distributor n Granada but they closed down around the time that Roca went through its financial difficulties.

Roca toilet parts

I shall be in Malaga on Monday and urgently need two “rawlpugs” for the pan. It is a Roca Giralda. The rawplugs are the plastic fitments into the pan that the toilet seat bolts to. I won’t have a lot of time to go from place to place. What is the best place please to ensure a reasonable chance of su...

Re: Seur and Amazon

We couldn't make it any easier. Unofficial official drop off point of petrol station. Only one for twenty km in any direction and it is on a main road. I think the issue is Amazon raising expectations of a three day expedited delivery (not Prime next day). In reality something coming from anywhere i...

Repsol bombona delivery

Collect your own exchange. 13 euros local shop for old heavy orange bombona. 16 .75 for new lightweight orange and blue with slightly less gas. How much do folk pay for delivered to your premises gas. Is it the old style? Only delivered if you have a contract ? How do you pay? Is it billed as and wh...

Seur and Amazon

You couldn't make it up. I needed a wf100 spec cable . Failed to find anyone locally who could make me one. So searched Amazon. £10 from Uk or 21 euro from Amazon.es. Chose the latter and paid for expedited delivery ( not next day) Ordered Wednesday and delivery guaranteed Friday for one euro extra....

Re: Hire car had a puncture

Interesting scenario. I recently had yet another puncture. None repairable area of tyre plus it was an oblique entry. They couldn't get a matching Pirelli tyre without me hanging around till the evening. I could have had a Michelin but the fitter said when is your next ITV? It wont pass with a Miche...

Re: Kitchen cupboard paint

We have just done ours. We too were sceptical however the results are very good. Used the small sponge rollers. Paint was made by 3V3 and a small rectangular container was 20 euros from Brico in Granada. It is labelled for use on kitchen furniture. Although small container it would do a large kitche...

Re: TRAINS

There is a certain irony with this. We haven't had local or long distance trains at Loja for about two years. Now they are running again the plan is not to have them. The ultimate irony is they ran into technical difficulties with the tunnel just near the Loja station and as a result the AVE trains ...

We have tried all manner of approaches including that and stringing them along for ages before announcing “ haven't got a computer”. Once you have answered a call, their software is clever enough to make calls on successive days at that time.i.e. That is a time when you answer. They just need an ope...

Ranitidina withdrawn

Ranitidina has been withdrawn as a prescribed drug in Spain.

Anyone know why? Presumably side effects versus effectiveness.

The indigestion drug is still available on the shelves of UK supermarkets

We get them too. We just ignore them.

I wish the authorities would do something about them. Not in the phone companies interest of course. Plus how do you differentiate between genuine marketing and rip offs like the microsoft scam.

Hi Ricasso, sorry I meant to do a follow up posting yesterday. First thing to add to Enrique’s post, do not worry about the “damn olive fly “damage. They are everywhere just part of nature.
