Ram Pump Installation at Manhaj, Batang Kali – Visit #2

Today we brought the man who is going to build the water tank tower to MANHAJ, Batang Kali. Paktok and his team will build the tower with two of his workers at an estimated time of two weeks. We also went to several hardware shops in Batang Kali to buy building materials. This water tank is one of the important parts of the ram pump system where it will store the pumped water. The tanks need to be at least at a similar height to the building where the water is going to be supplied. In this case, the water tank will be at least  9 m of height.
