Re: Am I missing something?

We used Brittany ferry Postmouth-Santander 3 times so far and going to Santander again this October. We are non-resisdent and have been going to CDS twice a year, each time we stay over 2 months so fly and hire a car would be more expensive. By joining the club the ticket is reduced by 30% and this ...

Re: Best timber pool treatment

I think the second question about how many litres you need depend on the area of the timber so I would measure the area of one piece then multiply by 8 for the outside or 16 for both inside and outside of the pool. Of course if you want 2 coats then you will need to double the amount.

Re: Pool grout problem

Yes I think it was that shop where I bought the O ring (junta) for the Astral pump. It happened last spring about March, the O ring failed after I cleaned the leaves out of the filter basket. As the O ring degraded, it couldn't seal and the water was leaking at the filter cap. That day, with the pum...

Re: Pool grout problem

I read somewhere that high chlorine content in pool will damage pipe work and especially the O ring in the pump filter. I'd try to dilute the chlorine level as low to the accepted level and as soon as possible. I think my rubber O ring in the pump's filter had been degraded by the high chlorine leve...

Re: Pool grout problem

Those test kits are no good whatsoever. They measure combine chlorine rather than free chlorine and give wildly inaccurate results. There is a very limited shelf life on the liquid. You need a kit like this which, although a little more expensive, is much safer and far more accurate: http://i92.pho...

Re: Pool grout problem

Available in DIY stores or large supermarket you buy one of these tester to check the pH and chlorine levels of your pool. Fill both tester tubes to the indicating lines with your pool water, add 4 drops each to the tester tubes, close the lids, shake then wait for about 30 seconds, Chlorine level i...

Re: Cave house with road on top.... avoid?

I suppose the traffic noise, vibration and structure of the house being affected are reasons for the advice.

Re: Pool grout problem

Have also had that "white cloud" coming off the pool sides when brushed. High chlorine does keep things clean: normal recommendation is 1-3ppm, but I find that 3ppm is a better level during hot months. Also, don't go slap-happy with adding acid. It will clean things up, and dissolve limescale (tile...

Re: Pool grout problem

I think it depends on how deep the grout was affected. When we bought the house, the pool water was all green and after bringing the water back to clear, the grout was green and black. There was suggestion of acid wash but the pool needed to be drained. I persevered with high chlorine and kept brush...

When it has gone down less than €1 I put another €5 in and at the moment it is less than €3. I guessed that Orange Spain charg...
