Services Available: Domestic Water System with 5 Stages

The waters of lower mineralization are most suitable in general for the elderly, people with kidney stones, those with severe hypertension or fluid retention and for babies.

If you need to take water mineralization weak or very weak (Agua de minerizacion debil o muy debil), you could install a Domestic 5 Stage Reverse Osmosis System and to say goodbye to buying bottled water. You will pay less money.

The cost of the system has a reasonable price and very good quality.

This system is able to eliminate the 95% of dissolved solids plus, 99% of organic compounds and reduce up to 99% of chlorine from current tap pressure.
With this 5 stages systems we improve smell, taste and quality drinking water.
It produces enough water to satisfy a family and can be installed hidden under the sink in the kitchen.

Even, if your water is not potable (e.g. from water well with EColi) you will be able to drink this water with the fitting of a UV light with the Water System for killing the bacteria.

Responses – Chicken Feed


Hermanos Bustos in Vélez-Málaga sell food for all livestock, pigs/cattle/horses/chickens etc. Their range has dramatically increased over the last 20 years or so, they are also very knowledgeable and helpful. They are located along the slip road that runs from the Mayorista end of Velez (where Hermanos Jeromo is), almost opposite the newish bus station at that end of the town, near the park that used to have the duck pond. they are open normal Spanish hours.

Hope that helps, Wendy


I have a four chickens myself and depending if you need to buy food by the sack or by the kilo there are a few places to try.

The farm shop in Velez opposite the veg whole sale market will sell by the sack or the kilo.

In Torre del Mar there is a small shop behind the police station that looks like pet shop but will sell you chicken food plus supplementary seeds by the kilo and a truly nice guy.

A small pet type shop one block up on the main road from ALDI in Torrox will sell by the sack or kilo plus if you have a car there is another place in Torrox through a  pueblo that someone told me was walkable but really may never have walked in his life !!   I hope this helps/




Response –Organic Shop

To the person asking about an organic shop and not a stall, there is a

shop opposite ALDI in Caleta de Velez , on the Costa, hope this helps. G.G.

Recommendation Received for  La Rompiente Restaurante –

This Torrox restaurant has been TripAdvisor´s number ONE out of 107 local restaurants over the last 8 months!
La Rompiente fine dining restaurant Torrox has been an established name in the area of Axarquía and far beyond for quite a lot of time, but do you realize they started the fine dining concept only 8 months ago? And do you realize that on TripAdvisor they have been the number ONE out of 107 restaurants in Torrox since then?
Thanks to the fact that La Rompiente fine dining restaurant Torrox has been registered on TripAdvisor for 12 months now, they were eligible to receive TripAdvisor´s famous Certificate of Excellence which they got immediately and without any doubt!
More information about TripAdvisor and its Certificate of Excellence in this article written by jvandolder1970 AT gmail DOT com:



Recommendations Needed-

I rent my flat in Torre del Mar for summer visitors, and have had an enquiry about what to do in the area (outside the normal ‘how far is the beach’ questions).   I’m recommending a visit to Malaga, but I’m not sure what to advise them on how to get there.  I know that there is a bus service, but I’ve been unable to find anything on-line about timetables.  And I have no idea what to advise them about parking in the city if they decide to drive.  Or perhaps there’s a half-way house of parking outside the city and getting a bus or train in?

Also, if anyone knows of a reliable tour operator in Torre del Mar who can arrange short trips (such as visits to Granada), I’d be very grateful to have the information.

Any advice most gratefully received –

please reply to malagahouse at gmail dot com
