  1. Unfortunately even Zeolite needs periodic replacement. The useful life of Zeolite depends on your diligence in backwashing to waste in my experience & of course usage. It is the only filter medium that will get your water to crystal. Life is 3-5 yrs dependent on use.
  2. Assumptions: I'm on a Canadian Passport, sorry for the neglect. Had been fined in Mexico City due to lack of Passport Stamp in 2008, cost $2,400 mxp paid before release to depart: They, Immigration was holding the plane with our baggage and all relevant documents. We have all our expired passports: but do not carry them every where. Only when they may contain critical documentation! Where did anyone other than u say we were traveling on expired passports?? Engage u'r reading skills before the Thumb & Forefinger. Cheers!
  3. I agree with TelsZ: Passport stamped, Fine but if your passport expires & you return without it. They could possible fine you for not being able to prove your exit. It's a moveable target! Of course if your a permenante who cares. Right?
  4. About 1,280,000 results (0.44 seconds) Google Crosley
  5. Tks Al!l we will visit the Manix establishment. Downloaded the renewal yesterday, how to make a simple process complicated. 5 pages of repetition , hot spots every where but nothing happens, Ouch!
  6. Anyone had success with a local Photographer for Canadian Passport Renewal Standards. Tks
  7. Looking for this elusive dessert treat, thanks for any reviews
  8. Which Bazar Has it? If known: address, phone, please provide
  9. I can confirm they are located as described. I drove by earlier today & their truck is/was parked outside. Makes a great sign board
  10. Thanks for the heads up, we are both Tax Paying Canadian Citizens aka Snow Birds, so that would not apply to us. Strangely we made a transfer about 2.5 months ago, so this is all fairly new. We will update the board on the outcome. Another nail that's unwelcome given all the other issues that we have here with new regulations for financial reasons
  11. Been using this organization for many years. Today I'm informed that they will not be able to transfer any funds to Mexico from my Canadian Bank Account as they are not licensed to operate in Mexico? I explained my issue was currently with their web interface, I was attempting to change the mobile #. to a number I use in Mexico. Question about where I was Located I said Location is Canada I am calling you on a Canadian Phone line at this moment. Anyone had this issue? Were you able to resolve it? If so pls elaborate. Tks
  12. Visited 3 Centro de Salud yesterday & today: Centro de Salud San Antonio had none said to return in Dec Centro de Salud Chapala had none but said to Return Friday Centro de Salud Ajijic had some & we were in & out in 5 minutes, big smiles all around You need a green card or some proof of your address Addresses for each Salud are available on google: Centro de Salud + location for specific directions Cheers
  13. Many Thanks Chapalence. followed your advice for Chapala, then transposed the Message for a in location in San Antonio. Google came back with 22 or 28 Ramón Velázquez. This street goes down from SunRise Restaurant towards the lake. Facility painted in a similar Scheme as Chapala Royal Blue Base, White Top, Thin Red Horizontal Line just above the Blue Could not get the photo to upload 22 Ramón Velázquez
  14. Centro de Salud Chapala: Is this across from the tennis courts in Parc Christina? Small branch of same San Antonio: Where , what street & number if possible Tks in advance for any clarification
  15. Thanks to all who offered their advice. It's in the hands of our property manager as we are just departing for Chapala. Hopefully we can get a new tank or at least a temporary one till a new one is available. Cheers
  16. Our 14 yr old Pressure tank has just failed, assuming a burst Bladder? Any one with any experience locally is appreciated. Am aware of a supplier in the Lourdes area of Chapala, then there's Casa des Plumares (sp) in west Ajijic
  17. Having problems with their web site. I can get it to respond in English but the upgrades for seats & baggage are a black hole. Even their 1 800 number is busy. Just a odd ball thought, are solar flares active at the moment? Has anyone with a Residenté Permenante found a work around to avoid paying the Tourist Tax now c$80.00 per person. Maybe I should be booking thru a local Chapala Travel agency?
  18. Perhaps a list would be in order (for people like me) to keep the various projects identified by a common name & location: 1. La Pueblita: via Hidalgo and Carr Jocotepec-chapala/México 23 19min West from Riberas 2. Hotel y Condos en el Lago de Chapala El Dorado: is next to the Radisson, duh! 3. A nameless facility on/near the waterfront in La Foresta. Still Nameless 4. Punto Laguna: A Condo, part Commercial part Residential now named, by the Coke Cola Plant in St Antonio Over to the masses for their edits Thanks
  19. No offence taken. Well a Potty was actually the 1st thing that came to mind, have seen several modified chairs for an underside addition. This is a different image of a similar or same thing? Always hard to tell what may have occurred without the additional images. As to the addition, that's up to ### currently ensconced on the throne. Still a nice piece, which was my only intent. Have a good day.......
  20. Looks very comfy, once finished with appropriate cushions, leave the wear points! (not the seat) possible remnants of a flower pot??
  21. When Travel Time on 1 leg of each visit can be an excessive cost. Hence most Pool Guys drive trucks, supply all chemicals, and tools charging 200-250± You can win due to high chemical costs to owner, so less of his own chemistry is more $$ to both?? We were turned down at 100 a visit. Too Busy was the response. I agree with u'r last para!
  22. Simple math: 2200/8 = 275/visit + your chemical costs & tools Simple math: 1600/8 = 200/visit + your chemical costs & tools Depending on the size of a pool & the knowledge necessary to use expensive chemicals, I would suggest that 100 a visit is ample payment for 1 hour or a part of, on a good day. So both the above are quite expensive unless "your chemical costs & tools" is not part of the equation? Nice Pool MC
