This isn't my theory, as I came across it in the chinese forum as part of a very long-winded story about 3 contract killers and how they killed Lisa and disposed of her body in the water tank.
Anyway, an intriguing part of the story was that the killers shut off the valve allowing water to draw down from the tank, in order to conceal the presence of the body in the tank.
Looking at pictures of the pipe network, this looks like it would be possible, and could be an explanation for the low water pressure.
There are water pipe inlets to two tanks, so the inflow of water to the other tank would continue, even with the water outflow from the tank with the body shut off.
There appears to be a flotation system in the 2 inflow tanks that shuts off the water inflow when the tanks are full. Similar to what you would find in the tank of a toilet.
Maybe the maintenance worker, in checking for reasons for the low water pressure, saw the valve was turned off and opened it, leading to the complaints of the foul water, which didn't start until after the discovery of the body was announced.
This is actually an interesting point... that perhaps that tank was cut off from supplying water for a certain period of time. Then, someone turned it back on and that is when there were indications that something very bad was going on that affected the water. Because all of the other true cases (meaning not movies) of people being in water tanks it seems the poor quality of water was detected much sooner. I believe in one the people consuming the water noticed that it was VERY bad within 24 hours. Granted, this was in a warmer climate than L.A. in winter and the tank may have been smaller.. but 18-19 days is a long time.
Now, I do not know why or how the tank would be cut off, however that makes a certain amount of sense. Although I do think some people exaggerated about the water because AT's water was clear.
I hate to talk about the water when Elisa's life is more important. But, I have honestly wondered why she wasn't found sooner just because of the water.
