A Big Thank You

I would like to say a big thank you to my very good friends Martyn and Rebecca for not only their support whilst my husband. Charles was in hospital but for staying with me in our home, night and day during his last 48 hours. They helped me through the ensuing week until my family from England arrived.  They really are a truly lovely couple who deserve some recognition for their kindness.

Thank you Martyn and Rebecca from the bottom of my heart.

Love Gina Brasier

Services – Reverse osmosis water treatment. (Response)

Hello My name is Oscar Pinazo, I am well known around Torrox and Axarquia area for repairing electrical and plumbing as well as fitting Osmosis filtration System.

I have many clients who have had this System fitted and I am sure they would be happy to recommend me as well as the System.

Attached is photo of details of how the System works. I can fit this System all included for under 200 euros. Once the System is fitted there are no running costs apart from an annual service.

I would like to point out that bottled water is actually not very good for health, as chemicals from plastic bottles escape into the water especially in hot conditions when it is being transported in the Spanish sunshine.
