    Hey I have yet visit the HH swimming pool. Public can enter by paying? Does that mean the gym also? As interested to conduct my swimming business here weekdays and hopefully weekends.
    Is that the original pump from Horizon hill? I am yet to locate the on off switch..
    No the swimming pool is closed to public.. but you could talk to them to see if something can be arranged.

    Yes original one. Something that starts with G. You can tell if its on or not by the lights it has, no lights, no power.
    It is closed but guest can be brought in by members who can then pay. They definitely have people keen to do swimming, even scuba diving at one point but problem is the water in the pool is not deep enough to do proper scuba.

I am cautiously optimistic of the potential as it may also serve the folks over at Gelang Patah in addition to Nusa Sentral. As well, rising tide floats all boats or so I hope... If things go well for the catalyst projects in Nusajaya, Nusa Sentral may also stand to benefit... I've scouted quite a number of ro jets/development in search of a good commercial investment but find that prices for shoplots has skyrocketed! Been to bandar Sri alam (very far...) and the shoplots there (very undesirable location, design - at least to me...) are already asking for rm850k... Well... Just some of my own opinion on this since I am researching... Thanks so much for your input Wuqi :-)
    Yes, i am too but just that for shops, its a bit of hit and miss. There are actually old, 3 storey shoplots in Perling, a forgotten part of Iskandar (that are still dirt cheap). They are cheap for a reason though.

    I would still consider Nusa Sentral shops as well, just that good to know when the area opposite will be developed. Once that is known, easier to make decision.

    2. Set up another pump at the water tank on your 2nd floor, disable this external one and install this at your water tank. Downside to this is that water consumption increases but the power of the water........Our tenanted house all have this system, powerful but can be noisy if you get cheaper model or the installer isn't so good at sound proofing.
    Hi Wuqi,

    for (2), you mean to replace the HH pump? Where can I get the pump? Can find it in any electrical store?

    when one is not using the water, will there be any noise?

    Do you know where is the switch of the original HH pump?

    Hi Wuqi, thanks for your reply. Now i udnerstand better what I am getting into and also the finance I will be required to come up with.

    One last qn, and this is a sensitive one. Currently, Im serving my 5 years MOP with HDB after buying a flat, now into my 3rd year already. As such I am unable to buy a proeprty overseas. In this case, can I put the owner's name as my mother's and my name for the bank loan, meaning i have no name at all within the house. is this possible and is this flouting HDB rules still?

    Its actually located on the 2nd floor opposite the master bedroom.
    The brand used by HH should all be similar and from this brand:
    http://www.grundfos.com.my/

    Any contractor would be able to do it for you. It will kick in only when water is turned on.
    Some used units so powerful that they can even repeatedly flush their toilets in very very
    short succession. (Not that anyone really need that unless having a bad case of the runs)

    Cheap and poorly installed = Sure noisy. Need someone good and the better models else it
    does get noisy when used at night.

    You will still need to have a name in the house as otherwise you cannot get a loan. I will PM you a legal way to get around this. Do not flout HDB rules.

    One of the best but need to confirm that the pump has lights on. Actually you can tell if it only trickles.

    Mainly for semi-ds and above then they provide. So if not, you can either get a pump on your roof tank or have individual water heater units equipped with a pump on the heater unit itself. Both ways will work but don't do both together, overkill and likely heater unit will kaput(ok if normal type without pump).

    Confirm I'm not agent. I did ask some forum guys PM them to advise and view of the two properties Mutaria and Pulai indah. I think I do not have any luck to buy properties in JB. Anyway, I ''ll go to sale office to withdraw and get back deposit in the coming week. Interested parties pls check with the sale office directly. Please don't PM me. Thank you.
