Re: respaying bonnet

Hi A pal of mine recently had his quite large Toyota pick-up prepped and completely re-spayed at the local chapa y pintura - away for five full days but he was loaned a courtesy car, and a superb job for €1500, but we are in a small agricultural town 60k from Sevilla, so perhaps a bit cheaper than o...

Re: Passport control queues

Hi Brian

We flew from Sevilla to Gatwick last Sunday, and no problems whatsoever at either end

And the same on the return journey on Tuesday

Hope this helps

Re: Full marks to Ryanair for a change...

Hi All We haved used Ryanair around twenty times a year for the past twenty years, and other than the very rare exception, have found them excellent in every respect - ok, you only get what you pay for, but when the occasional problem has arisen, they have been first class in dealing with the issue....

Re: Leaking Pool

Hi Chria

Thanks for that excellent advice - independently exactly along the lines I had hoped for

We might just go with our gut feeling of regrouting again with the right stuff, before investing in anything more consequential, and more expensive

Thank you again

Leaking Pool

Hi All Our pool is now thirty years old, and it has always leaked, but over the years the leak has got worse. Our local contractor has tried everything, including renewing all the pipework, grouting the tiles, renewing the skimmer box, jets, vacuum and filler points - all without any great improveme...

Re: EA bus Sevilla

Hi Wollie

I think on reflection, that the bus station with the line of bus stops 'like toll booths' is at San Bernardo - about 200m en route from the bus stops near the Prado bus station, on the way to the airport?

Hope that makes sense?

Re: NO IPTV from 1st July

Hi All

Our IPTV is still working - was the 1 July worry over-hyped, or will it all be blocked / go offline / whatever sooner or later as the 'authorities' close all the loopholes?

Re: EA bus Sevilla

Hi Wollie

I think that you might be referring to the bus stops opposite the Prado bus station, and adjacent to Marie Louise park?

Water from Well, via a Deposito

Hi All Our water supply is from a well, and recently we have had a 7,000 litre deposito installed so that we have a buffer in these summer months when there is not much water coming from the well. So for clarity's sake, the water from our taps in the house comes from the deposito, which then in turn...

Use of a Generator during Power Cuts

Hi All We live in the campo, and perhaps suffer more power cuts than those who live in the local town. Over the years we have become used to these minor annoyances and have learned to live with them, but they seem to have more consequence to some of our neighbouring friends One of those friend tells...

Re: Non resident buying S/H car

Use of a Generator during Power Cuts

Wondered if any of you Gurus out there might be able to help...... We live in the campo, and suffer occasional cuts in our electricity supply, which are usually off-on within seconds, but on odd occasions, can last one or more hours before the Endesa guys put things right again....... They are more ...
