Hi, Our pool liner needs replacing 11 years after installation.  The original manufacturer was Unipool but they no longer have a representative on the island.  Can anyone recommend a reputable company who would fit a replacement liner?  We have all the information needed to order it from Germany.   Thanks!

Hi, we want to rent a furnished villa for 4-5 months from about November 2016. Does anyone know if it's possible to rent vllas that are used mainly for the summer holiday business at a reduced rate, maybe even with some arrangement whereby I would do minor maintenance, like pool cleaning etc. Also, will be bringing a dog with us, anyone know the best ferry company to use and best route to take, we'll be driving down to Spain from the Channel tunnel. Thanks

There seems to be a few discussions regarding internet options in various locations.  I'm interested in Old Town Palma. I've been told Ono fibre optic isn't available in my street.  Best other options for speed, reliability customer service etc? Regarding power and mains gas suppliers - I'm guessing I might have a choice in Palma City?  Any better than others, particularly for a non (yet) Spanish speaker.

Hi all I was just wondering what the housing market was like on the islands at the moment. Thinking of buying and moving over but would appreciate any thoughts on where the market is heading. Has it hit rock bottom, or are we on the way up again?

We're moving to Campanet next month and running our online business from there. We're looking for the best internet access we can get. From what I've heard, the Movistar DSL isn't great, and we can do better with 4G-based service from IB-Red, Wifi Baleares, or Conecta Balear. Those are the 3 I'm aware of. Does anyone have experience with these, good or bad, or could recommend something else? Thanks!

Hello Everyone I want to install tv in my apartment in Palma. I have been told that I can access British channels on a smart TV with wifi. I don't want the costs of satelite TV because I'm not living there for much of the year. Please could someone confirm that a smart TV allows access to BBC and some other British channels. I  was told that Movistar wifi only gives you American English speaking channels. What wifi provider is recommended and what sort of costs are involved? Help with this would be much appreciated.
