After having a filling fall out I thought I should be ok for a while in terms of bad fortune, but it seems not!
Oddly when I got back from the UK the water was fine, but perhaps it was just running out what was in the tank and the pipes…anyway now I have no water at all.
A day ago the kitchen tap was still working, but now even that has stopped working…time to shower at the gym I think before I start smelling like a mouldy asam.
The first course of action was too call Syabas who were surprisingly efficient (and not at the same time) after calling about 9+ they sent someone around about 11am to check the water supply. The water supply was fine and there was water to the meter…but they didn’t call me to tell me, they just left me in the dark so when I called them again later they checked my case and said my water supply was fine – it must be a plumbing problem.
But it was too late by then to call the plumber out, but I called anyway and he said he’d come the next day around 9.30am..that was this morning – so he came of course.
And he told me it’s a main pipe problem, it’s quite a big job laying a new pipe to the tank (about 20m in height of piping) digging the floor to lay a new pipe and drilling the wall to feed the new water supply into the appt.
The cost…a little out of my budget for a place I don’t even own, first quote RM1200, after a look of wtf quoted RM1000. I’ve used this plumber a few times too, they are pretty good and respectable..but the other jobs were RM100+.
At least the job will get rid of the horrible rusty iron pipe outside too, and replace it with something that wont give me brown water.
So I called the landlord, he’s on his way over now – I hope he sorts it out ASAP so I can have a bleeding shower!
