HI. I am looking for someone who knows how to stop a leak on a pool pump. it's dripping from underneath and is hard to get to, it will probably need disconnecting, and re-glueing.  Grasse area.

We live around 50 km north of Nice, and have lost almost all of our satellite tv over the last few years. It seems now that we can receive tv from the most unlikely and distant places, but none of the UK channels.i have read up on this, and apparently the problem was caused by one of the satellites being relocated to give better reception in the U.K. some years ago.it now appears after a Goggle search that the only way I can restore a signal is to increase my dish size to at least 1.0 metre, larger if possible, but my search only shows suppliers of 80cm dishes in France.i have a few questions on this:- does anyone know where I can purchase a large dish in France- are there any other solutions worth trying. ( signal amplifiers ?)- does such a large dish require special supports ( my current dish is chimney mounted)- does anyone know a dish fitter who will travel.sorry for all the questions, any help / advice will be appreciated.

We became so fed up with the ongoing issues with a neighbour..we are selling. We bought the property 16 years ago - the original neighbour moved out 6 years ago and thats when problems started...so many to list and in every case the authorities washed their hands of the neighbour... however on one count he decided to take us to the high court regarding our pool heater...saying it was too noisy and that we must move it plus the destress over 6 years would cost us 20K euro in compensation.  Its nearer to our terrance than his front door - measure 47DB when right on top of it (the noise level of normal conversation is about the same level) - his house is 5 meters below ours with his drive way and front door - his pool and garden the other side of his house. Needless to say we had to take on a lawyer - he read everything and said that our case was very string and that the neighbour  was abusing the legal process - he has put forward an excellent case and claimed back our expenses and 5K euro - he said he thought we would win without a doubt - if not for the legal reasons but also the continual harressment, but we are at the first stage..We have decided to sell as he has made the whole experience of enjoying the property unpleasant - we have some potential French buyers.....Anyone know how long the legal case might go on for - both written arguments had to be in fromnt of the judge by 20 Oct - when might we expect a reply?Anyone know if we have to disclose this information to a potential buyer?Thanks!

Does anybody know of a company that will come and clear out an appartment? Apparently there is a company called Emancia or something similar or perhaps even the Crois Rouge would be interested in the furniture, goods, etc??? Any ideas or experience would be much appreciated. Based in Nice. Thanks.

Hello - would anyone be able to recommend a company to install air conditioning?  I see a number of companies listed but it would be good to have a personal recommendation of a company that can both install and maintain. Thank you.

Do they exist? Recently built, I mean. If yes, then where? And are they available for rent? I mean the apartments in those buildings? Do they usually have individual or communal water tanks?
