  1. Continuing my quest for a cleaner-air visit to the Visayas, I am posting to get some feedback about El Nido. I'm aware that the best options for finding cleaner air are in rural areas. However, due to some quirks of mine, it's hard to search for suitable accommodation in such areas (some may recall that I need to be able to word-search for a firm bed). El Nido has a relatively small population, and thus appears to be a candidate for having cleaner air. I have also found hotel reviews indicating that the beds would work for me. However, I've read of significant problems with pollution in El Nido, and so am posting to get some feedback regarding current conditions there in connection with any and all pollution and any relevant precautions. Thus, pollution of air, tap water, and sea and pond water are topics of interest here. Thanks for any info the board can provide.
  2. If anyone knows of any Posts or Threads about this, please direct me to them! Looking for information about the depth of water tables in the Argao area. Anyone gone over 140'? Also Jet versus Submersible Pumps? Do jet pumps start losing a lot of pumping value over 25' feet or are they good for deeper wells? Trying to see where the cut-off is to go to a submersible pump. The difference in costs of drilling/installing 3" casing for a jet pump and 4" casing for a submersible pump is 150 pesos/foot + the 50,000 pesos difference in the price of the pumps. Also, would you use a water tank above ground (ours is existing) or install a pressure tank? Thanks!!!
  3. We are currently having a very serious problem with our water supply here in Cebu City...As you know it is dry season here and the dead of summer. We've had no water now for 6 days. We are rationing but soon we will run out in our holding tank...Is there anyone else here living in Cebu City experiencing the same problem? MCWD, only says that it is El Nino causing this, so, what are they going to do?? I'm already using the droppings from my air conditioner to flush the toilet manually. Not much else we can do. We are buying water up the street, but it's only a matter of time before they also run out...May be time to hop a plane and go on an extended vacation..! 6 days now, without water..! Thanks, Rod

    Water Leaks in Cebu

    Hello to all from an Aussie in Melbourne Australia. I am a new member here, but have been interested in this site for a while. My situation is the following: I have a Filipina girlfriend in Cebu who I met two years ago. I work in Melbourne Australia & fly over to see her & spend time with her for a while each year. I am working towards retirement in Cebu. In the last two years we have rented 4-properties. The 1st property was very good, though too expensive at 11K per month. My girlfriend wanted to move, so we did. She moved in my absence after I had gone back to Australia, so I let her choose the place. Much better rent at 7.5K per month,... but the water bill was horrendus. 3K per month. When I went back over, I tried to talk to the LandLady about it, but she defiantly declared that there was no water leak & the one that they did have was fixed. So, we moved out. The next place was good, and even cheaper again, but soon after moving in the LandLord wanted to live in the place, so we had to find another place to rent again. Found a good one for just 5.5K per month,.. but it also has horrendus water bills of 3K per month, (as opposed to 500PhP per month in other 2-places without leaks), so it is very clear that this place has a water leak. Unlike the earlier LL, this LL is very co-operative & understanding. They agree that there is water leak & they also want it fixed. So, my question to all of you guys on the ground there is this: A). How many others experience water leaks? Is it due to the earthquake in 2013? B). The LL has indicated that the Water Company can do a check to confirm if there is a leak, & if so, they will give us a discount on our Water Bill. Is this correct? C). How do I go about getting the water leak fixed? Has anyone else had this experience? D). Can someone help me & guide me through this please? If I was there in Cebu, I would fix it myself, but I am stuck here in wet, cold, miserable Melbourne & I wont be over in Cebu again until sometime in June / Sept. Thank you to you all. Bakerboy.
  6. Mayo Clinic re: drinking water As a heart patient since 1988 and a survivor of triple bypass surgery, my cardiologist has recommended most of things listed below to help prevent a heart attack, especially about drinking water. I strongly encourage all to at least read the missive below. George Pearce ********************************************** Good Thing To Know! From The Mayo Clinic. How many folks do you know who say they don't want to drink anything before going to bed because they'll have to get up during the night!! Heart Attack and Water - Drink 1 glass of water before going to bed avoids stroke or heart attack! I never knew all of this! Interesting....... Something else I didn't know ... I asked my Doctor why people need to urinate so much at night time. Answer from my Cardiac Doctor: Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs swell). When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc) seeks level with the kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier. I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me. Correct time to drink water... Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist! Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body: 2 glasses of water after waking up - helps activate internal organs 1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion 1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure 1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack I can also add to this... My Physician told me that water at bed time will also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse. Mayo Clinic on Aspirin - Dr. Virend Somers is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic who is the lead author of the report in the July 29, 2008 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 A.M. and noon. Having one during the night, When the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual happened. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame. 1. If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night. The reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour "half-life"; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be strongest in your system. 2. Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest; for years. (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar). Please read on. Something that we can do to help ourselves - nice to know. Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue. They work much faster than the tablets. Why keep Aspirin by your bedside? It's about Heart Attacks - There are other symptoms of a heart attack, besides the pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating; however, these symptoms may also occur less frequently. Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack. The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep. If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water. Afterwards: - Call 911. - Phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by. Say "heart attack!" - Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins. - Take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and .... DO NOT LIE DOWN! A Cardiologist has stated that if each person after receiving this e-mail, sends it to 10 people, probably one life could be saved! I have already shared this information. What about you? Do forward this message. It may save lives! "Life is a one time gift" (Let's forward and hope this will help save some!!!)
  7. Hate to start new topic here, but really need idea of cost for this as we want to start on this next week. We're buying polyethylene 660 liter for 8k and planning on 6 meter tower. What would be a reasonable price to build/install this tank?
  8. ... about how much water we, Vivian, Quinn, and I, use every day. I tried to estimate this as best I could, anyway. I have heard / read the average person uses about 220 liters of water per day. So, I figured I would see if I could calculate our usage. According to this site, we use about 70 gallons (264 liters) of water, per day, total. This is water solely supplied to the house from the city water mains. This does not include what we consume daily from the water bottles. For the record, there is a 750 liter tank supplying the house, about six meters high, on a tower. So, how much water does your household consume, daily?
