We live in a rented house with a pool. The pool filtering times have been set by the landlord but I feel that he puts the filter pump on too often which is costing a lot in electricity.Our electric bills seem to be huge! Our landlord lived in this house before us and his bills were €100 euros less each month and the only difference is the fact we have a pool. He even had a busy workshop here.I timed it and the pool comes on for 20 minutes and then off for 55 minutes right through the day and night. Does this seem right or too much?

Hi I just wondered whether anyone had any experience with obtaining a government grant for restoring a listed stone house. I am aware that you have to pay for the work and then apply for the grant but know little more than that and any info I have searched for seems to be very vague, so any help would be greatly appreciated. For example: is it a difficult process, as we know many things involving red tape here in Cyprus can be!! and how long does it take for the grant to come through presuming you were eligible. Thanks in advance. Michelle

Does anyone know where I can get the following: We have a communal pool which has an external system. The green ring has cracked. It holds the filter bag (looks like a hoover bag) & the basket. This cannot be repaired as the pressure from the suction is too great, so we need a new one. Please help. I have a picture of it but I cannot add it to this post. I can email it to anyone who thinks they can help. Regards.

With respect , if this topic has been covered before, I apologise. I have just bought a property in Cyprus thru' an agent. You would think they make enough from the builders with their commission. Not true,they are quite happy to take more from you and ( I think) play on the fact that your head is spinning and won't notice and extra 20% going to them in commission they receive from the shops they take you to. We were promised, as part of joining their club, help buying goods to furnish the proprty,.....Help getting best prices, discounts etc. etc. (At one shop we used, the invoice we paid was made out to the agency?) We received absolutely "diddly squat". "Wise after the event" we did some research and found we could have saved the "members joining fee" AND almost £800 on the goods we bought.Some friends we met actually paid £9000 for a "Complete Package" and still had to fork out for Air Con. How complete is that? My advice to prospective buyers is to use the Inspection flights to view properties you like.Use Anglo Info to ask extra questions and when you come back to buy, hire a car or (a little more expensive) a local taxi driver to go to the shops, he will know his way around.If he then saves you money you can tip him.Our club , For the fee we paid "the club" gave us a rep for one day who so obviously took us to shops which gave "the agents " the BIGGEST backhander. Our considerations were never ever in the agents mind. Not my words , but so true. "When you do a deal you always leave a little in the pot for the next man. Here they see if they can take the pot as well" I have writen to the company Three times and sent "e" mails but I guess I'm another mug they have fleeced and SO WHAT. Popg robinson

Has anyone in the Paphos/Peyia area purchased bottles of methylated spirits for domestic use? I have tried several hardware/building trade/pharmacy outlets without success. I need it to fuel my Swiss Fondue, which works without a wick - I have tried various alternatives (lamp fuel and other substances bought from suppliers) all to no avail. Any suggestions? Josi jojo
