Hi! Valued Readers and Visitors,
To identify whether any water leakage in the house promptly especially if you were slapped by high monthly water bill.
We suggest that you turn off all the taps inside the house, then watch the water meter, just outside of the house whether the meter is moving or not. If the answer to the question is yes, then there are two main possibilities to the cause as follow:-
a) faulty water meter;
b) internal leaking. Inspect ceiling for any spot of leaking sign. If it leaks, spot for leakage on the ceiling board.
Alternatively, it may due to underground leaking or both.
Prior to the engagement of my new plumber, I have paid RM 22.50 to Syabas at their office, Jalan Templer, Petaling Jaya for testing of the meter. The meter testing was carried out at Sungai Buloh, Selangor and they furnished me the report in about a month's time.
Once, I obtained the results of testing, which found no fault in the meter and my monthly water bill was still high despite they have changed the meter. Thereafter, I began to approach several plumbers, finally I found new plumber, Mr. Kelvin. From day one, I found him very comfortable to deal with and he listened attentively to my problem and was willing to explore new ideas / plan before he embarked in this heavy plumbing work. He is a man of details and discussed in detail of his plan until I am convinced with the plan and material used for this project. He was recommended by my neighbour just direct opposite my unit.
He completed the job as per our agreed plan and schedule and I am very satisfied with his job especially his workmanship (fine and neat). See the photo and you know what I meant. He constantly uses his innovation and creativity to conceal the hose as much as possible, so that it is not taint the beauty of the house.
The photo above shows the main pipe, just outside the house compound, was then diverted and connected to this new hose through my retaining wall and go through the local made water filter systems. This filter system comes with multiple layers of sand and a layer of charcoal which remove the odour from the water especially chlorine. I thought its physical outlook is not so attractive as comparared with those stainless models from other brands. However, its feature is simple and easy to operate without much energy required especially when you carry out the backwash. For details, see the photo below.
Now, I have to see the result of this month's bill, which I will only receive in the following month. Having said that I am very confident to have positive result, as every member can feel the instant result of much stronger water supply at every tap. Thanks to my neighbour, who has come forward to get me a good plumber such as Kelvin who has resolved my household's water problem and help save the resources. At least, I have done my part and hope that he can also help others. That's the reason I broadcast this news so that others can get the benefits.
At my wet kitchen, I choose to let the hose be exposed so as to avoid hacking work which might need another day's work. Here, I am very satisfied in the sense that he again cleverly conceal the hose at the ceiling top. See yourself from the photo and judge his workmanship yourself. If you are happy, you may choose to contact him at 0122688396.
So please spread to others. Who knows they may need his services.
Stay tuned and I will tell you more about my new neighbour's new ideas which convinced me to embark on another project.
Happy reading and my apologies for wasting much of the resources. I felt sorry for not carrying out this project much earlier as some resources have been wasted.
