Re: Possible leak from incoming water

In Bangkok it may of been the case 20 years ago or so, but not now. It is very much the case now. To quote one example, my wife's family live in Nongkaam. Their house was about 3 quarters down the water pipe. (tends to be a single pipe down each side of each soi). The further down the line, the pre...

The census coverage would include: ¾ Every Thai citizen who ...

Re: Thai ex-PM fails to show for verdict

And what can they charge these guys with. Not aiding and abetting a fugitive as she has not been convicted of anything. Interesting to see how this pans out.
Anyway, she's gone and won't be back.

Re: Possible leak from incoming water

Sorry mate, but it is both illegal and very bad practice to have a pump with the suction connected directly to the mains supply. The supply should ALWAYS be via some form of settling tank. You're probably right but I can show you many instances where the pump is suctioned directly to the main suppl...

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

I think the only believable source is the National Statistics Office who is responsible for the 10 yearly census. They produce a full demographic of each region but that is just a snapshot in time.

Re: Possible leak from incoming water

A good indication of a leak is if the pump switches on momentarily every so often when nothing is being used. Unless the pump is faulty, it will maintain the pressure leak or not. (which is why it keeps switching on when there's a leak).

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

Interesting. My wife had to show her tabien bahn when she registered at HH hospital. She registered the kids at the same time. Maybe things have changed.

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

The Wiki link below lists all cities, towns and townships. It also includes population of each and gives a population of 41,000 for the town of Hua Hin.
The references/sources are in Thai so maybe someone else can help with that.

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

I believe that to get the 30 baht medicare system, you can only use the hospital where you are registered. My daughters were originally on a tabien baan in BKK and when we moved to HH they had to be on the tabien bahn here in order to use the 30 baht scheme.

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

You're absolutely correct of course. I had a friend years ago who created an entry on Wiki for himself. Listed himself as the world's greatest P*** Artist until the Wiki police removed it.

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

This is what Wikipedia says although it states 'Hua Hin District': Hua Hin District (Thai: หัวหิน, IPA: [hǔə hǐn]) is one of eight districts (amphoe) of Prachuap Khiri Khan Province in the northern part of the Malay Peninsula in Thailand. Its seat of government, also named Hua Hin, is a beach resort...
