As seen in the image, this is not the original water pipe that was installed when we moved into our HDB BTO. As the water pressure was very low, we decided to call a plumber and was advised to change it. We agreed to proceed as a good water pressure is needed for our washing machine. It solved the problem. However, we did more research after that and found out that HDB and PUB purposely decided for new flats to be fitted with water-saving taps. This meant that in the original tap there are thimbles or filters that is affecting the water pressure.
Here is how one BTO owner solved it by himself by removing the tip and the thimbles >> https://steemjiang.com/trend/@sinlg/singapore-hdb-bto-water-supply-low-pressure
