We recently moved into SW France and the property has a recently installed Septic Fosse. As I know very little about the design/set up of these systems can anyone help with the following:1. It would seem that the green plastic push on lids have lost the swivel clamp screw/plate that secures them in place. Do these form a better seal as well as preventing easy access? (If not can anything else be used to seal?) Are these securing plates/screws easily available?2. Can anyone recommend a website that will give some information to how these systems work and whether there is any regular servicing I can do to benefit their working. Thank youMark 17330.
Hi, Looking for a recommended double glazing window installer. We are in Chatain, 86250. Advice and price required for supply & installation of new large aspect window with shutters into and existing outside South facing wall. Additionally, replacement of some "blown" double glazed window panes into original wooden windows. I have looked and asked in the "Directory" but no joy! Thank you.
I’ve been contacted by numerous “solar panel”companies recently. Last week I caved and someone came round to do an assessment. Lovely chap, but I thought the prices he was quoting for solar PV, hot water and some heat exchange thing were a bit on the high side. I would like to have solar energy. We have a large, south-facing roof so we are in an ideal position. I know I could get an eco loan for the hot water bit and that there is some kind of cash back thing from EDF for each converter for the panels, and that somehow there is money available for energy production but if you go through EDF direct they don’t buy your spare back from you. Tbh, I’m a bit confused about the whole thing. I have tried reading up on the French websites about this but, whilst my spoken French is ok, I am struggling to get my head round the written info. Can anyone help? Is there a company out there who can fit solar panels without this whole business about borrowing money and “guaranteeing” it will pay for itself over the next eleventy billion years? Any thoughts or advice/recommendations very gratefully received.
