@MADE Made, I'm happy to say that we almost never have problems with the pumps. I see that your pump is only 7 or 8 months old, so we will send you out a replacement as soon as possible. We will sort out warranty details with Aquatech later. -Zander
@MADE not sure what the sand/topping mix is.. it’s usually used to resurface worn or damaged concrete. It just happens to be inexpensive in Hawaii so I figured I would try it lol. $19 a bag for Portland here!
The result was very brittle and flaky.. mostly just crumbled. It was strange because the surface set very fast and hard.. all the sand settled after pouring and fell apart days later
Using Aircrete would seem a very expensive way to go. Why not use earth in the earth bags? It's relatively cheap if not free. You might save a litle labor but I am prety sure the bags will leek. Even so experimentation is good. We never know when a project might need something like that.
I will be attending the workshop in august and I am interested to build as many of these as I can. We can definitely work something out if you are still interested. I have 1 partner at the moment who would be helping, and plan to expand the team soon.
My name is Sergio, I am Spanish and I am currently living in Tulum, Mexico.
I studied with Dome Gaia in Baja California and I am now building here in the Riviera Maya. A few months ago I completed my first project, which is a home made of two domes. I now started a second project - another home, made of three domes. I will be busy completing this project until the end of June 2018.
I am very interested in your offer, as I am thinking of running a similar workshop in Thailand next year. The idea is to offer a workshop to build an AirCrete dome sauna. It would be great to work with you and learning more about developing such projects.
Please let know your thoughts, I would rather start is July because I might be in Italy at the beginning of September for a wedding. I am free on Sunday for a Skype call and I would be happy to e-mail you pictures of my current and past projects.
