Manila Water Company Inc. said it completed the installation of 64 line boosters across the East Zone.
The company said this would increase water availability to the current 98 percent of customers who are now receiving water supply for at least eight hours at ground floor level.
The line boosters are among the technical solutions to extend water supply to elevated areas and those farthest from distribution facilities.
Line boosters are pumps installed on pipelines to increase pressure in order to push water to the challenging areas located at higher elevations and convey water where it is needed.
Manila Water said 26 line boosters were installed in Quezon City, nine in Taguig City and five in Mandaluyong City. For Rizal, fourteen were installed in Rodriguez, three each in San Mateo and Antipolo City, two in Binangonan and one each in Taytay and Angono.
The company said more line boosters were scheduled for installation within the coming weeks in more locations in Quezon City and Rizal.
