One thing I don't understand is why the water pressure dropped significantly in the day or couple of days before the tanks were searched and EL's body was found. The body had been in there for a good while, so something must have changed to create such a change.
I know the Cecil has water pressure problems in general, and that there probably had been some degree of pressure problems previous to the last day or so before she was found. But I can only think of two reasons that this would have happened. Either the decomposition of her body reached a stage at which all or part(s) of it began to cover or clog the exit pipes, or articles of her clothing indeed did end up getting sucked into and clogging the pipes.
Assuming the pressure is back to normal currently, we can assume her clothes were not the cause (that idea wouldn't make much sense anyway). And apparently the body was found floating in the water with her head pointing down with feet up (which, according to the FBI website, is the natural way that bodies of drowning victims become oriented, by the way--a clue that hasn't been discussed much on these forums to my knowledge). So it makes me wonder if parts of her body or skin had begun to clog the pipes. The same FBI site discusses about how, for instance, the skin of hands can come off like gloves.
Regardless, I've never heard much discussion of why the water pressure would have been affected, and why it would have become so dramatically low toward the end. Just wondering if anyone has heard, knows anything, or has any educated guesses about that?
good day findinganatta!
- we need more information on how those water tanks operate.
- from the little information I found.....they have a pump on the tank that pulls the water from the upper level of the tank.
The tanks fill up by using city water ( pumped up to the top of the building>>>then inside the tanks) the city water contains debris/particles of dirt that settle at the bottom of the tank.( that's why it doesn't syphon from the bottom)
- interesting questions....
who contacted the maintenance person about water pressure?
wasn't there always water pressure issues?.....was it worse this time?......Guest said they still showered and brushed thier teeth....
why even check inside the tank?.....it's only supposed to have water?....how could you even tell if something was blocking the syphon pipe inside the tank?...
