Let’s say you are about to buy a used car. You’ve done your due diligence, researched options, and have gone over what you need and what features you’d like.

It’s not until one goes down that you, your property manager and your tenants start to miss what it was doing: maintaining pressure at higher floors, getting water or sewage out of lower levels, or making sure you are ready during a fire emergency.
