For those who have outside water filter, there should be a pressure gauge to indicate the water pressure. Mine registers at some 250kPa which is somewhat 36psi (more than tyre pressure) to be usable. Anything lower than 200kPa is going to be problematic, not taking into consideration your 10 year old GI pipes have considerably reduced in internal diameter due to age with corrosion and scaling. There you have it. Damn!..they should ban the use of GI pipes in homes.. you'd be a looser in 10 years time, unless you renovate your house and change the pipes.

A bit but no cause for concern yet. Found out anything? I just hope work pressure will drop as well.

Hi Orchi san :) ,

Err... thot I noticed some low pressure for no apparent reason, a week ago or so, thinking it was the rusty pipe getting blocked within. Some years back, I noticed that the water pressure was extraordinarily high, so much so the pipe had a little pin hole leak above the ceiling before entering into the 'Tanki' :eek: . Had to call up a plumber in to check :mad:. Appears to be quite back to normal now... :)

Err buddies...thanks for your response...in jest or otherwise... :)

But seriously...the tap water supply pressure would appear to be
normal...after 7am in the morning...

Past few days were more serious...the tap water supply pressure
would be low from 10pm or so...instead.

Hopes this would not be a sign of water rationing routine exercises by SYABAS...
coming soon. :mad:

thanks for raising this on the forum...i thought it has to do with my house piping...could it be something related to the ground test? i see they use quite alot of water too...not sure if its using or letting it to flow away...

Get someone to clean your water meter. Sediments and junk carried into our water system gets trapped in the meter each time each time there is a water supply interruption and the water supply re-connected. Got mine cleaned by Selangor Bekalan Air after I complained about low water pressure. Can't believe the amount of gunk that got trapped inside the meter.
