    Bruder, the link is to a similar posting of the p.o.s I made on the discusion thread but of a higher resolution in case forumers cant read the p.o.s posted on the front page which is of a lower resolution. Trust that helps provide explanation.

    Sometimes I wonder why you need to install water filters when the majority of the population do not have one

    I never need to spend much money in water filters, in SJ here and Malacca.

    Malacca piped water is still acceptably clean, no visible mud or colored substances. I have a Panasonic carbon filter at the kitchen sink to get rid of the chlorine and other odour.

    Quality of piped water in SJ is terrible. The piped water is muddy, full of rust and scales. Luckily, there are two gigantic filters at the ground floor (the filter tower is more than 10 feet high). Piped water from the main is pumped by water pump to force through these two filters vertically before it reaches the water tank at top floor (29th floor, approximately 320 feet from ground level). The water in the tank will gain column pressure due to the altitude and hence water pressure is never an issue. I also install the same Panasonic carbon filter in the kitchen to get rid of chlorine and odour.

    I think the money spend for extra equipment/fixtures needed for landed property like water filtration, CCTV, automatic gate, reinforce roof to prevent break-in, anti-burglary window grille, alarm system, mosquito net, etc, etc. may not be cheaper than the maintenance fee in condo even if you calculate in long run, not to mention the endless hassle to spend money, time and effort to maintain all these equipment and fixtures.

    Why are the consumers in SJ not doing anything about this ??

    'Quality of piped water in SJ is terrible. The piped water is muddy, full of rust and scales.'

    There is a small "hoo haa" a couple of months, or maybe years back regarding our aging water piping, causing wastage and pollution of clean water... As usual, Malaysia Carpet very big, take a broom sweep sweep sweep...... puff no more news and follow up.....

    If not mistaken got some people go "bang table" with JBA some years ago, showing dirty mains water filter cartridges as evidence, but then ultimately results thereon showed nothing much improved. Whether JBA did anything is left to guess.
    My take is the water is generally clean and acceptable at the treatment plant, but when its delivered through untold condition mains distribution lines where pipes are still GI (Galvanized Iron), rust and scale will contaminate the water anyhow.
    How much JBA can do is anyone's guess. Maybe if ALL the distribution piping is replaced to other than GI, the problem will persist. I'm also sure residents won't like the idea tolerating massive road works during digging and laying new pipelines.
    Can't have everything lah!.. Everything comes with a price. Best is you've to install at least a mains sediment filtration filter and whatever you're willing to fork out for further filtration. You have to do your part if you insist on some ideals.
