Flushing Out Rust from Water Pipe

I have rusty water pipe in my Delima Apartment in Bukit Jelutong. The apartment is 20 years old++ so its water pipe has lots of rust.

Once a year, I have to flush out the rust if not the water is yellowish, smelly and slow.

The plumber has to open all stop cocks at both toilets and kitchen and flushing out all the rust stuck at the stop cock.

My Property Investment Journey on Delima Apartment Bukit Jelutong Selangor

In May 2021, I surveyed properties at Delima and Seroja apartments at Bukit Jelutong. I booked a unit at Delima apartment after I found it was quite good condition and affordable price vs other properties in Delima and Seroja.

Due to MCO, I was only to able sign the Sales & Purchase agreement by October 2021.

Then started the repair and renovation in 1st November and completed it by 26th December 2021.

My contractor did repair and renovation only on Sunday as he did it on part time basis. So in total he did the works for 8 days.

Even though still repair and renovation work in progress, I advertised for rent the unit by 15th December 2021 on mudah.my. Fortunately able to get a  booking by a tenant by night on same day. I think I got fast booking because the unit was repair,  clean and put additional touch ups that make the unit look better and tenants can live comfortably.
