Today is going to be a full afternoon of work.
- Well it’s just four hours of work, but it can feel like a full afternoon with all of the interruptions that happen.
We are glad that we have sizzling water in the flat now after over a month of going without it. Taking chilly showers at night when we get home is a thing of the past finally and now we can relish in a great shower without feeling like we got tossed into the Arctic Sea. The chilly showers sting the skin and a sizzling water heating system is such a nice thing that we feel like hugging the new one that we installed last night. We did the install ourselves and we are pretty happy with it, except there is a slow leak that I need to fix this weekend. We just need to figure out if we need to drain the heating component or if we can fix the leak without draining it completely. It holds about 15 gallons of water and it feels like such a waste having to drain it all out to fix a little leak. But we know that is the only way we can do it. The heating specialist told us that we have to remove this valve from the line and reattach it, so it looks like draining the tank is necessary to fix the leak and be done with this once and for all. We know the outdated tank lasted about five years and this one should last the same.
