The air valve at one of the main water pipes leading to the residential blocks of Seri Tanjung Bandar Baru Bangi was found to be leaking yesterday.
I called up Syabas Kajang to make a report at 5:33pm. When I passed the place again around 7:00pm, the situation didn’t change, except there were children playing with the leak.
At 7:30pm, I got a call from Syabas Kajang wanting to confirm my earlier report.
Then around 2am, while working in my room, I heard strange tsunami-like noise downstairs. I went down, and I found Syabas contractors rectifying the problem. The air valve had broken.
The contractor said they got a call from Syabas at 10pm about my report.
Flushing the air (and a lot of mud) out of the system on the other side of the building, hence the tsunami-like sound. For a while, the parking lot next to it appears to be flooding. The car owners would not be too happy in the morning, but I’m sure they would understand.
So it took 1½ hours to confirm my report. Another 3½ hours to inform the contractor. Another 4 hours for the contractor to finally show up and fix the problem. Considering all were done in less than 24 hours, I guess that was a good thing.
The valve after it was fixed.
Anyway, thank you and congratulations Syabas Kajang for a job well-done.
