  1. QCon 10 cm Blocks - hanging load

    It's OK. QCon specs eventually downloaded and it seems I can hang 50 kg on 1 special QCon fastner, so 10 kg spread across 4 should be no worries. Who's worried?
  2. From people who have hung things from their QCon blocks; I want to hang a 10 kg power supply from 4 points using the special QCon fastners. The vertical QCon block wall will be fitted with a bracket that the power supply clips onto. There will be no support under the power supply. Doable or collapsible?
  3. As everyone (a rough guess) who has built here, and had to leave during the build, would say out loud...you must be here for the build. Things don't happen the same if you, not your wife, are not here. 'Thailand building code 101'

    @Scouse123 -how did you go? Find someone and started?
  5. Pool pump and white plastic valve

    Thanks Valentine. I should have asked you first, but sometimes don't like to trouble you as I know you're busy.
  6. Khon Kean Visit

    Any fishing park type resorts in Khon Kean? Or a nice place to stay for myself for a couple of days.

    Seems they have some fairly neat DC motors that hook up straight to the solar panels. Probably expensive. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  10. Pool pump and white plastic valve

    Instructions don't mention it. Don't show it in the diagram. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  11. @Crossy Why a 10 ma RCD on the pool? If the pool pump has no electrical connection to the pool, the lights are low voltage and transformer coupled, and the pump and equipment are isolated from the pool. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  12. Pool pump and white plastic valve

    Hi, I was thinking I'll just leave it out. I'm not 100% sure it is from the pump as I've had stuff everywhere, but it was in the pump box bits and pieces. I've plumbed the pump output to the filter with an inline spring check valve (as per your diagram). So if no one knows or replies, I'll just leave it out. It's funny sometimes when you pull something to pieces and put it back together again, you have spare parts left over. Sent from my SM-J700F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  13. I seem to have a spare part left over from my pool pump installation. Does this white plastic flap/valve have to be installed? Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk

    Anyone into solar powered pumps? Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
  15. It looks very nice from the video. You need to not look at the video surrounds, but pictue it in the area you are going to build. I designed my place using a CAD program, with a walk thru video, but some things I would have changed if I had located it in the exact area I was going to build. If it's going to be your retirement home, you need to think about when you get in your 70s or 80s as well. Why have 2 storey? You'll probably spend most time downstairs anyway. Getting rid of shiny floors is nearly impossible here in Thailand, but get a sample and throw some water on it and you create a skating rink. I'd try and go for less slip flooring. Make sure the flooring you do have is only 1 level. When you get older you don't want to be walking and changing levels, where all the tiles are the same colour. Easy to miss a step and break an ankle. I know it's only a drawing but go overboard on power plugs, you can never have too many. Sent from my SM-J700F using Tapatalk
