Re: Masks

And then the sad story. They say that COVID can transmit through eyes and ears. So, good to have a mask. Mucus membrane, so eyes yes, ears no I share your opinion. Just read from somewhere that ears COULD be a way. Anyway whatever you do, it is not perfect. Just have seen some videos related to glo...

Re: Water filter system

The RO systems in my view are way too expensive to purchase and maintain. One year set of 5 filters 660 thb plus two extra pp filters 99 thb. Full set to start 8 500 thb. 12 ppm water from those not so expensive filters. Of course need to buy meter to follow. We have 6 person to use that water. Sma...
