    I doubt this guy is gunna have any old Somchai doing any repair work or looking for faults in his pipe work.

    He is way to smart and will do all his own repairs, further more I reckon he would never let Somchai anywhere near his place once he has finished it.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    Just a thought, why not use a large tank initially as a settlement tank, then the dirt can settle to the bottom
    and the filtration system has a much easier job and lasts longer?

    Just a thought ...

    Not that I have any experience ... we drink the rainwater and bathe/cloths wash in the village supply ... if it's running,
    which isn't often!

    Our fingerprints never fade from the lives we touch

    ^ He is right. At any seemingly clean water (from the village supply) - once it is stored - there is a lot of sediment after some time. Then, an easy draining of the sediment - and a flushing by a pressure water - should be enabled.

    thank you for your recommendation.all live conduits(power and water)are covered with concrete.there is a waterway along the wall and walkways around the house.will post some pics later....
    you see a little bit on post 373 picture 3....
    there is no danger of live piping if someone works in the garden...

    Are you going to build a Pergola at the back?
    I see this all the time on thai houses no outside entertainment areas.

    ive got plenty of room in the backyard.i will do something in the back for sure,but not at the moment.a nice pergola like in Ticino-
    Switzerland with grapes around the pergola would be great.....
