Water interruptions for one month!

Three days ago, my neighbor messaged me that there would be a water interruption for one month, Nov. 18 to Dec. 18. They would do it on Wednesdays and Thursdays. She even sent me the screenshot of the Maynilad's announcement. Maynilad is the water service provider in Metro Manila. But for 3 consecutive days now, we have no water from 9 am to 7pm!!!! And if their service resumes, they give us murky water! So infuriating to be honest.

This is true. Because I cannot even start my laundry. Why can't they do it in thr evening when people sleep?

Do you have another water resources besides them? What would you do with that murky water? You can't cook or wash with that water.

I use distilled water for cooking and drinking. I buy it from Alfamart.

we are also under maynilad. i received the text alert from maynilad last nov 17 about the nov 18 to 24 sludge clearing. we have low pressure but it never dries up. where did she get the screenshot - facebook? twitter? maynilad website? also, by this time, do you still not store water for drinking, washing, etc in big plastic buckets?

@Janet357 so what's the problem? there's only you at home all day, you don't need that much water, you already have stored water, you don't need to line up to get water.

That is very unprofessional! Yet, they expect the customers to pay on time even though there are several interruptions.

1 month is something that we could not accept.
