Re: White deposit on pool water

Wicksey, my suspicion is high pH and perhaps old reagents if you have a false result. Is the pH 7.2? https://www.thespruce.com/thmb/BLdLqUUuKLLFvy_lWxRtMBHjEsM=/3289x2467/smart/filters:no_upscale()/GettyImages-128897764-56a75e015f9b58b7d0e9abba.jpg As for the valve, perhaps someone else can answer t...

Re: White deposit on pool water

What is the pool pH? Cal would only survive on the surface if the pH is too high.

Re: Restoring plastic headlamp covers.

I used a kitchen "salvaunas" with a small amount of bleach.
That did it.

Re: Freesat Transponder on Humax problem

Is there a reset to factory settings option with the Humax box?
I would try that.

Yes there is page 55 of the manual

Re: Easyjet

Oh dear. EasyJet have now been hacked and all customer details and credit card details are out there in the wild.
They say it was a sophisticated attack, but then they would say that, wouldn't they?
These companies really do need to take Internet security more seriously.

Re: Made in China

I find it impossible to boycott China completely, but I attempt to, as I have for about 15 years. Nothing to do with viruses, everything to do with their human rights record, Tiananmen Square, repression of Christians, etc. I recently had to replace a fridge/freezer and went to Currys/PC World to ch...

Re: Coronavirus

Are some of you deviating away from the true intention of this thread into politics? Cheers Gerry Yes, Gerry. But probably because in the end everything comes down to politics. Whether the government are right or wrong to impose a lockdown and balancing that with our human rights, and whether we sh...

Re: Coronavirus

Olive, ^^ It would be the only virus ever to have existed that the human body is not immune, once exposed, infected and recovered, so we should assume that people who have had it are immune. The South Koreans first though that people could be re-infected as they had 91 cases where re-infection was s...

Adverts

Hello Admin, There has been a huge increase in Google Ads, some of them are actually in the middle of the posts. There is a limit to how many adverts are acceptable to users and you may wish to take into account that for some it makes reading too uncomfortable. I'd rather chip in €5 a year than have...

Re: Coronavirus

I find it quite puzzling how compliant people have been whilst their human rights have been virtually reduced to zero. Whether it is right or wrong, expecting people to stay in their homes for months on end is a big ask. Perhaps they are all 100% convinced by the stay home, save lives mantra. Or is ...

Re: anyone experience of compost heaps?

I always found it was just two dry to get things to compost in Spain. We tried different methods, but each failed and we ended up burning the stuff which had dried out.

Re: Planning to move

Maybe in 2 years the world might have returned to normal, or a new kind of normal, whatever that actually is.
Until then, yes, make loose plans, but be flexible as nothing is happening at the moment.

Re: Coronavirus

Did anyone else watch Telediario at lunchtime today? I am sure they said that the reported deaths in Spain are all deaths that are occurring on a daily basis not just deaths directly attributable to Covid 19. I didn't see the program, however I think it is unlikely as the overall death rate in Spai...
