When the water pumps broke down

Today, the residents in the condominium where I stayed had to queue up in front of the tap at the car wash area to wait for their turn to fetch water for use upstairs. What prompted us to go there was the break-down of the second water pump after the first one had failed earlier.

This is one of woes of living in a high rise apartment where water is pumped up to large storage to be distributes to individual units. We took enough water for bathing and washing of dishes and one pail for the toilet.

Carrying a large pail of water to my unit really exhausted me after the sixth trip.
i hope the repair man will come tomorrow to fix the pump or we will have to the tap at the car wash area for water supply.
