NO, I complained about the water contamination in the pool and he said it was run of rainwater contamination and I said no its the gravel bed filter thats gotten contaminated , I had seen exactly the same thing once before, but he said I knew nothing and it would be better in a couple of hours , it wasn't. He then wanted to change just the mesh filters and I said it was a waste of money as he would have to fix the filter bed anyway so after trying it and it not working he had to go for a full gravel bed replacement, which the pool guys had also told him and for some reason he blamed me because it cost a load of money and for some reason know only to him he got me banned at some meeting at Christmas time when I was not there to defend myself and when I tried to book in the next summer I was told it was fully booked , so I rented with the other agent on site and after 1 day I was asked to leave. Yes it was shit move and he was a NZ guy not a Thai so it was even worse.
The argument was with a guy on the committee responsible for keeping the pool clean he blamed me for the cost of a new gravel bed filter I said it would need and after trying a cheaper option he had to pay for a new gravel bed filter , which had become contaminated with a green slime that I had seen before and made a big thing about how he knew a lot more about it than I did .He lost a lot of "face" and I was warned off . Now it could also have been he didn't want me to follow through with my threat to break his neck if he didn't stop annoying me , and my ability, then, to have carried through with said threat . Alas the years have changed me as I am now a poor old geezer with arthritis that needs a pool to exercise in.
I like to fall out of bed into the pool every day, sometimes twice a day, so getting up, getting dressed going to Mikes mall and getting undressed defeats the purpose and would add a further 3000+ baht to my costs each month.
Thanks for the tips guys . I would have just booked the Diana estates but I got banned from there after an argument about pool cleaning about 10 years ago, it was the place I loved best in Pattaya and but for the argument I would be going there still. Back then I stayed 3-4 months every year. The other places I had on my radar but never went to see, other than sutus court which I thought was a little too noisy for my liking and I left after a month of a 3 month stay .The maxcentral looks good so will keep that in mind as well as the chaba hut . thanks guys .
I want a cheap low season place in the central area around Soi Buakhow third rd area with a pool and wifi. for maybe 2 months around may -August. I have stayed in the 9 karat condos and though a bit basic it was ok as it had a huge pool but I have not been in 5 years so have lost contact and no longer know whats what so to speak.I want something around 12-15000 baht a month, and as long as it has a lift if it has stairs and is clean I am easy to please. Exact location is not to important as I will always have a motorbike to get around..
