The cause of the leak was a pvc connector that was broken in the other unit bathroom. The owner of the unit had rented her condo to a lady. This renter knew she had a leak and when I knocked on her door to tell her my unit was getting water from her leak. she would not talk to me and would let nobody in to shut off her water. It took over 3 hours and the police to get into the unit. The policeman said the lady was drunk and a police report was filed.
At the beginning of this leak, I had 2 rooms with water and by the time the police got into her unit and got the water shut off if was 3 hours later and now my own condo had water in all the rooms.
I cannot find anything in the condo bylaws that talks about piping.
We have been in contact with the landlords insurance and claim was denied.
