Re: Forum Search Feature

Admin, totally LIKE your suggestion. Yay for the best threads. Like good books, they will last and be uplifted, not buried by technology. Is there a way to make it retroactive? Is there a way to search with options of most viewed, most responded as well as most liked?

Re: REPLACING CARNET 2017

Either Chileans have disgusting bathroom habits (beyond theft of tp) or - more likely - it is the astounding Chilean lack of consideration for other people which leads to public places without bathroom facilities. Bienes Raices in Curico, which has at least a hundred people in & out on an average d...

Re: REPLACING CARNET 2017

yes, it was both Britkid. No answer Rhodolite. I would guess Santiago frozen-north but my guessing skills are greatly over-rated.

REPLACING CARNET 2017

An insightful, prolific, funny, politically incorrect, relentlessly insensitive, and invariably rash poster from somewhere in Chile shared this adventure with me. He thought "those who are trying to get their lost, stolen, or misplaced carnets replaced might benefit from reading it, even though othe...

Re: hydraulic or geo-engineer to find water table

.... it lasted 5 years before the 3mm central hydraulic tube collapsed. The well is unusable. I must dig another well but first I want to find the water table and the best location. So it seems that the old well worked ok for 5 years. Then the "central tube" collapsed. I presume there is an outer t...

Re: hydraulic or geo-engineer to find water table

As I said above, thick walled shallow wells, 40ftish or 2 lengths of pipe, 7cm 12volt sub pump down the pipe, 385watt solar panel and presto 10 litre a minute 3-8 hours a day, been there doing that..........
