Its a new apartment on Condado, Murcia with preinstall fitted, so pipework and electric supply should not be a problem- I HOPE!
I will ask John (engineer) if its possible to carry his pump in a suitcase, but the whole cost saving idea is useless if the units cannot be sourced locally and at a price to make the exercise worthwhile.
I just finished furnishing the apartment late last year so I want to enjoy the weeks break with golf, good food and a nice Spanish red, or two. I don't want to complicate things so maybe it would be more convenient to get a local supplier to do the job.
One reason for even considering this option was seeing some of the untidy, if not shoddy work on the roof when there last. Cables where joined by twisting wires together and wrapped in electrical tape, pipeork to the compressor was rough with insulation missing and some units appeared to be placed on the wrong concrete plinths..
I try over the next few days to identify suppliers and obtain firm prices, if unsuccessful then I'm not going to waste any more time but will revert to a local supplier who can do the job when I'm out.
