Hi,

I live in Alwarthirunagar, Chennai. In my area all borewells have yellow colored water. Does such water cause any problem when used for bathing and cleaning vessels ?

Hi, we have 12 apartments in a building and have 12 individual overhead tanks. The water supply to the tanks is through a single pipe and the water gets filled in one tank after another so that the tank at the last is the last one to get filled. Please suggest a full-proof mechanism by which the water can be filled simultaneously in all the 12 tanks, once we switch on the motor? Thanks.
