The Thai’s seem to be non-confrontational about our ongoing water supply problem in Nong Khaem so I decided to fix it for our house at least.
6000 Baht for the water tank
1500 Baht for the plumber to install it
500 Baht to get our water pump working efficiently with new seals.
The main problem is that the Bangkok province and surrounding areas are flat and all the water needs to be pumped to a height that assists gravity feed. Bangkok is only a few meters above sea level and as the population density increases so does the need for water towers. Alas, there are simply not enough of these towers to cover the populated areas, so the water pressure drops off completely when there is a high demand such as in the mornings and evenings.
