Going Up

The water systems in most of the houses are gravity feed only

Water is stored on the roofs of buildings in either concrete or, more recently, plastic tanks. Every building has a pump to fill the tanks from the water main in the street. This is usually done at night.

When constructing a new apartment and adding additional water supply, tanks must be hoisted to the roof. This is done with ropes and pulleys and hard work.

This was interesting to watch.

Even this passer-by was wondering about the rigging.

Hard work

Concern

An assist from the landlord.

“Well done men”

All smiles now.
