The wife and I are thinking of building a small house and were wonderinbg if anyone has some experience with water,electric and septic. The property we saw had electric and water at the edge of the property. So we would need a trench dug about 50-60 meters long to the foundation.Also would need to put in a septic system. Does anyone have an idea how much for the trench work and the septic system ? If too expensive then we'll buy a resale property. Thanks
I require a very experienced gardener for about 4 hours( in one day) a week (or more if necessary) in Javea. The garden is an interesting diverse garden with many unusual plants and I need an interested and passionate gardener who knows and understands Mediterranean plants. You need to be able to prune and plant properly and have a full knowledge about all types of plants which are grown on the coast.
I want to sound proof one of the internal walls of my bungalow in Daya Vieja.(Near Gusrdamar/Torrevieja) If no one knows where I can find a reliable builder to do it, does anyone know a builders merchant where I can buy acoustic plaster board? . Has anyone had to sound proof their property (my neighbour is deaf and has his TV very loud) if so can you tell me how you did it? Thanks Mick
I will soon have a home near Calpe which is in need of a heating and air-conditioning installation. There are many plumbers advertising on this site but I also know they may not all be good. I prefer to go with a recommended company. Have you had success with a company ? Any recommendations appreciated - also if you have information on companies to avoid. Many thanks!

Last summer renovated an old abandoned terraced garden on sea facing slope in Altea area. New palms, citrus, bourgainvilia etc were planted and an automatic watering system installed. Any of you experienced folk out there have any watering knowledge you would like to share with me as I am not moving in until late spring this year. Having gone to the expense would not want to lose any shrubs/trees due to under/over watering. Droglite
As we are currently having a lot of builder work carried out I can't have a full load delivered, can anyone recommend a supplier where I can collect some - big estate car so loads of room. Preferably around the Elche area, but will travel a bit further south if needed.
I bought a gas barbecue at Aki in Ondara, and instead of having the usual fitting, that uses a hose and a jubilee clip; it needs a screw fitting to connect the gas bottle. I went back to Aki but they don’t stock them, and have no idea where I can get one. Does anyone know where I might find a fitting like this in the Javea area?
Hello all, last week I read a lot on this site about Teleast and that they were operating illegally. Well I have checked it out and have spoken to their rep and also our TV provider AIRBOX who assure me there is no proble, with the service and that they are not operating illegally. We too had problems last week with our broadband/ WiFi but it was only a matter of having the box /router re-set which they had to do by computer. All is well now so I suggest that if anybody has an issue with the company please go directly to them. Irish Ewen
