As part of the kitchen remodel, we needed to move the hot and cold water pipes. In doing that, we found that the hot water tank didn’t have an isolation valve. This mean that the hot water needed to be drained, which took forever. The pipes were then moved and the hot water tand refilled. The good thing about this was that I found out that I was heating the water with expensive day time electricty rather than the cheaper night time. So, i switched that over and it should help with the bills.
On Saturday, I go to take a shower and no water comes out. Because of the low water pressure in the building, I have a power shower that takes a feed from both the cold and hot water tanks mixes it together and use a pump to throw the water at you with considerable force.
We (my newphew) messes about with it, calls the manufacturer’s help line and spends half of the morning trying to get it going. Nothing works. It seems like there’s air in the shower unit that we can’t get out of it. On Monday when the help desk is working again, he’ll give them a call again to see if we can get it working.
Worst case, I’m going to have to buy a new shower, which means that we’ll need to drain the hot water tank again.
On the bright side, the kitchen is starting to look good.
