My Climapool Experience - whats yours?

Just thought I would share my experience withClimapool Center on the Frigiliana road. Others may have betterstories (I hope) or similar experiences.
I Contracted this company to change a pool pump in May of last year. Two slick guys came around in Climapool suits to fit it and told me over and over how they are the best company around and that all work is 100% guaranteed. The pump was a Silent 100 Espa and the Installation and purchase cost 420Euro. It was never very silent in my opinion but since I had never had this model before I though that it was operating normally. Three months later the pump stopped working (seized). I call Climapool and they said that it must have been a "picko de luz" ie electrical overload and I woudl have to claim it on the house insurance. The house is protected from this so I knew it was not true. Anyway since the pump was under guarantee they removed it and sent it back to Espa.  It took over a six weeks and many phone calls until I the pump was repaired and eventlually refitted.  During this time I had to hand clean the pool each day (August and I had a family of eight in the house) I had to use an enormous amount of chlorine. OK.
After the repair Climapool gave me a bill for 90 euro and said it was for the re-fitting costs.  I was not happy about that and when I asked what had been the problem with the pump they said that they did not know!.  The pump when fitted still made more noise than I would expect from a new underground pump but again I was assured that all was in order and off they went.  Well here we are in January and guess what? yes the pump has seized again. Obviously the pump has faulty bearings and has had this problem from the start.  I visited the office  to report the problem and was told that I would be contacted immediately to arrange a replacement. That was two weeks ago and  after various calls I am still waiting for some service.
Apparently I cannot touch the pump without negating the guarantee, otherwise I would take it to Espa in Malaga Myself....
Meanwhile I have been quoted 270Euro for installation of the exact same new pump from a company I have been recommended in Torrox.
Basically I am disgusted with the prices and after service from the Cimapool Center in Nerja.
Hope this serves as a warning to others. Thats it rant over and thank you Digame letting me share this.  K Seal

Inner peace - In a Pocket?- a balancing view

Regarding Irene's promotion of Prem Rawat and his works. Just please be aware of this man and his massive global organisation that has made him incredibly wealthy.
Google Prem Rawad fraud/scam/ and have a good read. Like many of these brain washing cults (correct spelling), the objective is to create massive cash flows out of peoples' insecurities (think about the evangelists in the states here). This one is cashing on the fact that many people in the modern world believe that they are unhappy/stressed/confused - and surprise is the key to exchange for some money obviously.
You shouldn't be surprised to know that you have to pay for the 'keys' - the first 5 that is..then the sixth (and no doubt the key 'key') is presented 'later'. the guy cashes in globally via seminars, online preaching, DVDs - whatever. You are also encouraged to donate to Global peace funds, global event funds, and a thing called 'giving tree' (you do the giving by the way). He has distributors of his material in almost every country on earth - who have a vested interest in promoting him. Im not saying Irene is promoting him for cash though - I wouldn't know that.
I think you get the picture. I just didn't want anyone to waste their hard earned by lining the pockets of this dubious character. No doubt he has found happiness via his mega millions and jets etc.
As I say, Google him (fraud/scams/wealth) and decide.   Jack

Re Satellite TV Update

Lee - Thanks for you latest update on our potential TV reception problems later in the year.
Are you saying that to overcome all our future UK programme reception problems, we only have to wait until we are back in the UK, buy a sky box and Sky contract, bring them both back to Spain with us and plug in? If that’s all, it’s a big sigh of relief and lot cheaper than a 3 metre dish. I don’t know what I was worrying about!
The only other thing I was going to add is that two of my neighbours are on Sky and both have lost all the Channel 5 programs. Do they need to change their login details and do a new scan to get Channel 5 back?? David (Cabo de Gata)/.

Satellite TV Update

All of Sky's channels that were transmitting from the Astra 2B satellite have now moved to Astra 2F (European beam) according to SES Astra.  Astra 2B will be moved from its current position to 19.2e (Canal Plus Spain, France etc).
I have checked all the relevant channels and they are all still being received without problem, in fact, some channels that were difficult to receive in the evening have a stronger signal now, for example Sky Movies Action HD.
No one should be experiencing any problems with this the latest upgrade.
I will stress that these are Sky only channels which can only be received with a Sky receiver and subscription.
Also SES Astra have confirmed that the launch date for the latest new satellite, Astra 2E, will be the 20th May 2013, this will probably be the satellite that will carry the remaining Freesat channels (ITV/BBC etc).  It is expected that the 'footprint' will be very similar to Astra 2F and thus the UK spot beam which will carry the Freesat channels will be very difficult to receive here in Andalucia.
As soon as I know of any more confirmed updates I will let you know.     Email: Lee at dantis dot co dot uk

Recover Deleted Email Messages in Hotmail

DoctorLaptop in Nerja Says:  Regarding Deleted Hotmail - Another view
From Hotmail Help

Hotmail Help & How-to

With Hotmail, you can recover email that might have been accidently deleted from your inbox. This is also helpful if your account has been hacked, because hackers often delete all the messages in an account.

To recover deleted email
  • In the left pane of the Hotmail window, click the Deleted folder, scroll to the bottom of the window, and then click recover deleted messages.

    Hotmail will recover as many messages as possible and put them in your Deleted folder. If you don't see the deleted messages that you wanted, it means they are permanently lost.

When the recovered messages are back in your Deleted folder, you should move the important ones back to your inbox or personal folders because the Deleted folder gets cleaned out periodically.


  • This feature doesn’t work for child accounts. This way, parents can be confident that when they delete messages from their children’s accounts, they stay deleted.
    ALSO: Despite what Keith said in a previous Digame issue, I would not recommend Gmail. It is the most hacked email service out there and has a track record for losing millions of their user's private info files to hackers. They also keep copies of everything and will provide copies to any investigative agency without warrants. I prefer as a more secure email and shorter addresses.

Good luck, and email me directly with questions...No reason to fill the Digame site with this.

My husband and I received the gift of Knowledge nearly 40 years ago, and ever since have enjoyed feeling the peace, love and joy that lies within all of us, just waiting to be discovered. You are welcome to email me if you have any questions, but the website is very comprehensive... Irene at every-breath @ hotmail dot co dot uk.

Re Recovering Emails - Hotmail

1. Hi there...In answer to the Recovering Sent/Deleted emails on Hotmail long as you have not actually deleted the contents of these files...go into the file and right click on email required..choose the Copy and Move option and move it to your in box. In most cases another window will appear telling you emails cannot be sent, do you want to yes and bingo its done....   Hope this helps, sorry about non computer terms tho..:0
2.  I presume you have tried clicking the 'sent' and the 'deleted' options on the left?
Unfortunately deleted items are saved for a while then wiped permanently, periodically. Hotmail doesn't say what the 'periodicity' is?
Sent items have two options.... 'save all' or 'don't save any'. You have to choose. Click on the 'sent' option and click 'check your settings'. Cheers, Keith
PS Open a Gmail account and have all your Hotmail sent to it. Then you can save most of your emails in the free 10Gig store under unlimited folders!

Although his cognitive facilities are intact, he quickly learns that he has “locked-in syndrome” which means he is almost completely paralyzed and not able to speak. One of his few functioning muscles is his left eye. His situation brings together many people in his life, including: Céline Desmoulins (Emmanuelle Seigner), his ex-lover and mother of his children and his aged father who he calls Papinou (Max Von Sydow). His compassionate recuperative team includes his speech therapist, Henriette (Marie-Josée Croze) who eventually teaches him to communicate... In French with English subtitles. Regarded as one of the best French films in a decade.

What´s all this fuss about Ryanair

I have just come back from a weekend jaunt to Blighty using Ryanair, I was a bit worried about using this airline as I have heard all the rumours about emergency landings etc..

Well I had no hassle about my hand luggage (10 kilos) as I stuck to their guidlines and weight limits. I printed off my own boarding cards so there was no need for me to go to checkin, you just go straight through to security check, The plane was on time both ways, the staff were friendly and helpful and all this for just 50 € in total, you can´t go wrong.

I would certainly fly with them again. Don´t know what all the fuss is about.   Jacqui

Malaga Airport Long-term Parking

A few weeks ago I asked for information from readers on long term parking at Malaga airport. Many thanks to those who contributed. I am off to Spain On Wednesday and shall be looking up the various places which have been suggested. The prices quoted vary from €588 to €1120 for allegedly the same level of service! Some companies have different names and web sites but appear to use the same small covered area. Most sites show beautiful photographs of Malaga Airport and or the official airport car park but not their own premises. I fear it may well be "You makes your choice and you pays your money" I am quite happy to inform you of the company I use if anyone wishes but I may well need the full 12 months before forming an opinion. Tony

Problems With Spantel Service

I wonder if anyone else is having problems using Spantel to call the UK using 1030? In December I checked my bill and I had been billed for calls made on dates when I was not in Spain. I had problems getting through to them by phone as the number on their invoice is not correct- Eventually they said there had been a problem with their billing system and gave me a credit. Now the January bill arrives with numerous errors again. Chris

A (small) Satellite TV Update

I promised to keep everyone updated with the channel moves from Sky/Freesat/Astra so here is the latest news.
Firstly, there is no further news as to when the remaining Freesat channels will move, it is still looking like this summer.
As I previously explained Astra 2A and 2B which carry many of Sky's channels would move to the new satellite Astra 2F using its European beam, so there should be no loss of channels. This process has started but to everyone's surprise they have started moving the channels to one of the European beams of Astra 1N, which is the satellite that we currently receive BBC/ITV from, which is going to be moved from its current position of 28.2e (Sky UK) to 19.2e (Canal Plus Spain etc) to accommodate the European market. As it is the European beam no one should be experiencing any loss of channels, to check, try Sky News (non HD), this is one of the main channels that has moved.
Unless they are now not going to move Astra 1N (very unlikely), I expect that the channels will have to move again!

New Barbershop

There is a new barber in El Morche, behind the bus stop near the church. His name is Juan Carlos and he used to work behind the bar in the Parquesol, so some of you will know him and what a thoroughly nice chap he is! Always smiling, very friendly. He doesn't speak English but his Spanish is easy to understand as he comes from Bolivia (that is, he doesn't speak Andaluz!). His wife tells me he only charges 5 euros but you would have to check that out. I noticed he was open on Sunday morning.
