Just reviewed the comments above and thank everyone for taking the time to view the topic. Yes the camera angles could have been better but we must remember that Justin and his cameraman are doing this show as a hobby.....if it was to be done professionaly I would have had Tom Cruise acting my part. just one comment does not make sense and that is the comment about Pipetek repairing boilers??????....we do not and if the gentleman who made the remarks would care to contact us with further information I would be grateful....those of you who have become clients know that we do not take payment until works are complete....strange comment then!

Enjoyed this and learned a lot. But you should have two cameras + diagrams for something like this. It was hard to follow at times. I would have liked to have seen the Pump box / hardware being discussed. Being outside didn't add much to this video (except the Bucket Test).

Both pool discussions were good. However, in part 2 I thought they could have changed the camera angle. Justin & Jim must have been in the same frame for 10 minutes. A few zooms, pans and other shots would have helped.

PipeTek also repair boilers and after failing to fix mine (and after paying them a significant sum) they then simply ignored me - and after promising that they would fix it. I would not recommend them.

Well... that's something else to think about when we are trying to find our place in Spain. Thanks, very informative and nice to know that there are people out there willing to help without charging the earth.

Siesta Show Webisode 74 - Common problems with Pools in Spain.
In today's webisode we chat with Jim from Pipe-Tek SL and we discuss common problems with swimming pools in Spain.
