The water is stored in units next to each villa. These are one next to our villa. When they overflow, our warden yells to the guy in the tanker to turn off the tap! Not a very elegant way to regulate how much water to transfer! 🙂 …

Such water which is delivered to us is paid for by the landlord. My understanding is that once the mains connections are established, we’ll be individually metered.
