Hot Water Plumbing, can I do this myself or do I need to get a plumber.I am aware that in the UK, unvented hot water systems are controlled and DIY is not allowed.I am also aware that it can be dangerous, explode, if you get it wrong.What I want to know is am I allowed to install this in Spain?I have done a load of research in to the "how to" but I want to find out if I should do any more before I proceed either myself of get a plumber in.Thanks in advance.Pete

Hello We are coming to the Costa Blanca for 6 weeks in January and want to be able to use our laptop. When we go to the UK (we live in France) we have a pay as you go dongle from 3.We are hoping that such a thing exists for us to buy in Spain so that we can update our websites etc. Can anyone help? We obviously don't want a contract we won't be there very often, however we don't want to incur huge bills on our Orange contract either!!We would be grateful for any information

Can anyone help by recommending a reliable plumber in the Benidorm to Altea area. I had an air conditioning unit installed but when it rains hard I am collecting buckets of water under the aircon unit - it is just streaming down the wall onto my electrical plugs underneath. I have tried contacting the person who installed this who was highly recommended but he is ignoring my calls.I also need other plumbing jobs doing. This is urgent. Thanks

My son has just arrived at our apartment near Moraira and found that the batteries in the two aircon remotes have leaked and neither of them work any more. He bought a generic controller, but the autosetup on this doesnt seem to work and he says he needs the manufacturer specific codes to program the controller. Its difficult for me back in the Uk to advise him, does anyone know of somwhere in this area that sells or repairs Daitsu aircon? Or, as a long shot maybe even someone has an old controller lying around? thanks, Martin

Can anyone advise me on the different electricity tarifs on the costa blanca. We are told that electricity is cheap, but seem to be paying an excessive amount for a small 2 bedroom house and only 3kw...

You may have recently received a letter from your electricity supplier regarding the new legal requirements of all householders in Spain. It is now necessary to have fitted in all properties a potencia control. (New properties may already comply). This involves fitting a small box next to your electricity fuses which will be locked so that your electricity coming into the property is limited to the amount you are contracted for. If you do not comply with the new regulations they will automatically charge you the tariff for a much higher supply. The cost of fitting is between 40 and 50 euros and a further 9 euros added to your bill to seal the potencia control.

Does anyone know if the "contracted power" on electricity bills is deducted from "actual usage" or is this another charge? Thanks
