That was not really a recommendation but if there are no other basic Wi-Fi providers available they do work out a lot cheaper than the Tooway satellite option.

@  Admin - Colleen : (28 April 2017 - 04:51 PM)

Sorry but I would not recommend clio...the problems I have had....and now changing to other companies like Linkem or Aria or Tooway

@  Digger : (28 April 2017 - 09:17 AM)

Had problems with Linkem but now much improved. You could try Clio (aka Raganet). They cover SanVito so may be OK in Serranova.

@  Rob : (28 April 2017 - 08:47 AM)

Thanks - Linkem don't cover us, I will have a look at Digger.

@  flora : (28 April 2017 - 06:55 AM)

Not sure whether 4G is good in your area, most seem to have a combination of satellite or Linkem- there was a thread recently that Digger began but I can't seem to find it at the moment.

@  Rob : (27 April 2017 - 04:13 PM)

Any advice on the best company to go with for internet in the SerraNova area?

@  Admin - Colleen : (25 April 2017 - 06:56 PM)

suppliers will supply gas even if they are not owners

@  jonathanru : (23 April 2017 - 07:01 PM)

The tank has a Sinco SRL label on it. Does that mean they own it? I've now asked my property manager guy to just get a topup done as we won't be back until July.

@  MargaretM : (22 April 2017 - 04:53 PM)

Will suppliers actually supply to tanks which do not belong to them?

@  clint : (22 April 2017 - 03:44 PM)

Surely it depends if OP owns the tank or has free use of it from oil company if the latter than OP can be in breach on contract if they use another supplier

@  Admin - Colleen : (21 April 2017 - 04:59 PM)

Liguigas are probably the most expensive. Try Simone in MF, for more favourable prices.

@  luap : (19 April 2017 - 07:48 PM)

Try Liquigas in Lecce but they deliver to Ostuni. Has your tank been tested by them?

@  Billy : (16 April 2017 - 09:56 PM)

Ah...

@  jonathanru : (16 April 2017 - 04:35 PM)

Ha! Installed in the house we bought so not much choice!

@  Billy : (14 April 2017 - 09:16 PM)

LPG? Have you won the lottery or wot?

@  jonathanru : (14 April 2017 - 07:41 AM)

Can anybody recommend an LPG supplier in the Ostuni area? And do I pay at time of delivery? Thanks!

@  clint : (13 April 2017 - 06:38 PM)

Thanks for the info Panner

@  Panner : (13 April 2017 - 11:37 AM)

Clint. Last I heard is that Steve the plumber has packed up and is not doing any further work, including finishing stuff he had already started. I suggest you find someone else

@  OriaDeb : (13 April 2017 - 11:04 AM)

Thank you so much Flora. You are an angel x

Do you mean these lovely people on the industrial estate area behind the station? http://www.prpitaly....g/contatti.html They are very helpful and good quality.

There is a couple in Ceglie who I recently requested quotes from.

The first didn't even get back to me with an idea so I didn't chase. That was Vito Scatigna of Pool 2002. Sorry but I really can not chase people to give them work!!

The other guy was Domenico of dcpiscine.it, he came back straight away.

Without the paving but everything else, price was 31,000 for a 10x5metre pool. Have a look at his website. He will also take you to show you his work too.

He also sells products.

Try Blu Pool in Oria 0831 845 725. Dr Carone speaks good English we found him to be reliable, professional and offer great after sales service. 10 x 5 should be cheaper than 31k!

Happy Dipping!

You have to compare like with like. You need detailed quotes and make comparisons. All suppliers will do this but not all suppliers provide a quality job that has a good life.

I understand that Blupool also has a good rep.

You need the geometer to give the suppliers a spec so they can all work to the same specifications and make comparisons easier.

Each quote differs also on the land. The quote I requested was for a pool which needed to be built into a steep slope therefore they needed to allow for a retaining wall. Had it been a flat piece of land, much cheaper of course. Equally depends on whether the concrete is mixed by hand or brought in by truck. Depends on access.

Many aspects to consider when putting in a pool, not just comparing one number with that of another.

We have had a steel construction pool (with liner) built by AQUA EXPERT di Arturo La Torre, from Monopoli. We are pleased with the pool, though you will probably need to find your own builder for the ground work. I don't know if he speaks English, but seemed very experienced. Can PM other details if required.

i have read these posts, and do not like to comment on things or people i know little about, but i can assure anyone, that you "do not" mix concrete by hand for a pool, you "always use readymix, and further more halfway through each load being poured you take a sample and make a cube out of it,6" x 6" x 6") and keep it safe with detailed records of which pour it came from, and registation number of lorry and paperwork that came with load, if your pool fails, that way you have cubes to test for a faulty mix.

I agree that in an ideal world readymix concrete would be preferable BUT as I live 1km up a VERY narrow lane with several 90 degree bends it was impossible for a readymix lorry to come to our house. It would also have saved me a few thousand euros in the labour costs of mixing concrete by hand. If however our pool fails I know exactly who mixed the concrete and the company that was responsible for the work. Either way in the event of a failure I think it could be a bit of a nightmare getting anyone to admit liability.
For the record my pool was built 6 years ago by Vito of SERVICE POOL in Ceglie and I am very happy with the results, no complaints whatsoever. I do know of other people who are not so happy with him, likewise I have heard good and bad about ALL pool builders mentioned on this forum so I make no recommendations on who to use.
