No Hot Water

For the 4th day this year I have woken up to no hot water. Every time I email the agency and tell them, and every time they reply and say that it is fixed and that it was a building wide problem.


ONE IS NOT AMUSED AND ONE IS NOT SHOWERED

Re: No Hot Water

We had this problem twice last week
We live in a new building and they've told us that they're working out the kinks but it seems they can get the heating or the water working but not both at the same time.
At least it gives me incentive to go to the gym!

Re: No Hot Water

No hot water is not an excuse to remain unwashed. Would the masses please wash?!

Here's some cold water and sand paper.

I need my shower to function though

You're right, they do read your email, they do reply, they do reassure that it isn't just you. But, I'll let you into a secret.

They read the email, and think f*** it, it's only porsch1909, let him suffer. It'll feed his paranoia.

Re: No Hot Water

If it really is a building-wide problem, get together with your neighbours - you know, those Swiss people that live around you - and write a formal letter of complaint asking for a refund in rent.

It is only a small amount, but it should make the letting agent sit up and take notice and potentially fix a recurring problem properly.
