They arrived just in time for the water system of the house to break down.Lemme 'splain. The municipal water supply doesn't. At least not reliably. For that reason, every dwelling has a big tank on top,
which fills when the city water is working, and supplies water pressure when it is not.
It fills when the city decides to send water, but the water is then sent to the three-story house from the tank by pumps. Great idea until the pumps malfunction.
We really weren't trying to run them off. It's just one of those Peru things.
We hope your water works when the guests show up.
