On the other hand, Raquel Cardenas, architect of FV Franz Viegener, recommends cleaning the heads of showers and taps every six months because the water of Lima has many sediments and grit and is easily clogged.
Add that if you plan to buy or rent an apartment, it is essential to check the optimal water pressure that should be 40 pounds. And how is this verified? Very simple. Ask to show the manometer that must be installed in the building pump. If the property does not have this system, it is preferable that you call a specialist to do the corresponding verification. Do not overlook this recommendation that can make the difference between quiet living or a real ordeal. It is also important that before signing any lease, open several pipes at once, including the shower and pull the toilet chain to certify that the pressure is good.
