  1. Pool pump and white plastic valve

    It is a simple non return valve that goes in the line from pump to filter, If I remember correctly the pump is Astral, formerly Hurlcon & has full warranty from the supplier. If you have a non return valve already in the line between pump & filter then just leave it out.
  2. Panthongtae Shinawatra faces legal action

    Sounds like he is upgrading from cheating in uni exams.
  3. 27 Gamblers arrested with 8,000 Baht cash in Phuket

    This is a Phuket forum.
  4. I don't recall ASEAN ever making a firm commitment on any foreign policy.
  5. Phuket underpass lane closures go ahead

    There was some kind of closure yesterday as traffic from bypass was routed onto a single southbound lane on Thepkassatri. Bypass was backed up almost halfway to Lotus.
  6. Grating

    I have used treated pine in the overflow, then put down some mesh & cover in stones. Wood lasts for years. The overflow was open directly into surge tank.
  7. New Tyres

    How many km. I realise a lot depends on how hard you drive. I am generally pretty easy on my tyres i.e. normally no quick acceleration & sudden braking.
  8. New Tyres

    So far I have 4 1/2 years with 100,000km on the clock with the original Bridgstones plus they were dated 2012 when pickup bought in 2013.
  9. New Tyres

    I only recently found out about this. Vehicle bought in 2013 & recently someone pointed out tyres made in 2012 but have done 100,000 km in 4 1/2 years.
  10. That U turn is relatively safe as oncoming traffic is directed off to the left.
  11. Maybe some foundations going in on the Visit Rd side as I saw a couple of concrete trucks there yesterday. They always seem to be moving dirt but no sign of going under yet.
  12. New Tyres

    Sure Motors on Chao Fa East in Phuket are offering buy 3 get 1 free. Considering it for my pickup which currently has Bridgestone Dueler HT. The promo is for BF Goodrich which I have never used before but would save me 3,300 Baht on 4 tyres compared to buying Bridgestone. However I am unsure of the quality & safety of BF. Anyone have experience of either or both? Thx.
  13. And "the owner" put water tanks there.
  14. Reminds me of Winston Churchill stating "democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time".
  15. Beachfront land ruling rattles Phuket

    The ruling is being appealed so nothing will happen until then.
