Re: Weather in Udon ?

Just watched a interesting video on Algae & how to kill it.

Algae is airborne & so are the Phosphates which the Algae lives on.

It mentions the weather which is the time of year we are in now.
Worth watching if you have a pool.

Re: Weather in Udon ?

Thanks for the tips. Have used 15 KG of Chlorine powder in the last 2 weeks. It clears it but after another downpour the Algae is back so obviously not clearing it totally. Have ordered some Copper Sulphate from Swimming Pools Thailand (sponsor on Udon Map). Will give it a try & if it does not work ...

Re: Weather in Udon ?

Have noticed an unusual high Algae content in the rain.
After only a few days of rain my drive is starting to go black.

Also my swimming pool needs lots of chlorine or the water turns green.
Anyone else having problems with swimming pool.

Re: Pipe and conduit lengths

All the Plastic Pipe in Thailand uses PN numbers.
PN 16 is good for 16 bar which is as high as you would need.
PN 8 is good for 8 bar which would do the job.
Just make sure you buy the correct PN fittings and some good glue.

Re: Miscellaneous COVID-19/Corona Virus Discussion, Questions, etc.

Plus 3, still not too bad! The bad part is that 1 was a German man who traveled from Bangkok to Chaiyapum where it looks like he picked up the virus. He also visited a shopping mall before returning to Bangkok. Hopefully he drove to Chaiyapum and did not use public transport. Another was a old man ...

Paid my road tax over 30-days late last week at the drive-thru tax office on the north side of town. The on-site Por Ror Bor insurance office was open. Looked like bike tax payers were doing their business inside. You can do your bike at the drive thru. I have done mine even though I was in the car...
