Re: The Pomos Coast

Nice photos from that beaches. The drawing in the sand is not manmade but from the snake you photographed. It looks to me more than a viper than a coin snake though. The shrub in one of the pics is thyme in its winter look....

Re: Warm domestic water even on cloudy days.. (test)

I agree that many (most) solar panels here are badly installed. However, I question whether 'a more advanced technology or high quality product' can be amortised, compared with a correctly installed thermosyphon system from a reputable manufacturer. It depends on the amount of daily hot water one n...

Re: Warm domestic water even on cloudy days.. (test)

The topic was, that with photo-voltaic panels one can produce energy to warm domestic water in certain weather conditions like overcast, rain etc..while with thermosyphon it is hardly possible. It has nothing to do if some people have already PV installed or not. (good decision though) The reason fo...

Warm domestic water even on cloudy days.. (test)

Recently we had a lot of dull or rainy days with no or only a bit of sunshine with the result, that traditional cheap solar systems one can see on nearly every roof in Cyprus won't produce warm water (except you use the 3 kW electric element which is very costly) As there is a quite new technology a...

Re: Troodos visitors censured for trashing Troodos

What I not understand is why there are not plenty refuse bins, to be emptied every day, at least the few weeks of the year the Troodos peak is crowded from Cypriots and some tourists to see the snow. It is well known that many locals have still the habit to throw their empty drink bottles, cigarette...

PV-owner? Check your inverter after the storms

This is a message only for owners of a photo-voltaic net-metering system. Luckily I check every day what the readings on my PV inverter are... and today it was blinking red with the message no grid connection. I went through all the fuses and found one on the AC side had dropped obviously from the v...

It will be the third time only that Kouris overflows since built in 1989. (2004+2012)...and it will last a long time as it is only the first week of January..!

Our largest dam Kouris/Limassol is going to overflow the next 2 days or so..

This is the report of today, showing that the Kouris is nearly full and needs only 2 days or so to overflow...as the Arminou dam is also 100% full and feeds with a huge pipe the Kouris dam as well...
