I know, I know, I haven’t been keeping up with my blog. Getting settled in has been more of a challenge than I expected. And it may be a bumpy road for a while yet.
One such unexpected bump was this:
Sunday my wife went to take a bath, only to come back into the room to find the above. That’s a real photo of the muck that was coming out of our hot water tap. When we called maintenance they were less than expedient in looking into the matter. They kept trying to downplay it like there wasn’t actually any problem, that everything was okay. No, it was not okay. I have never seen water that bad. They tried to blame it on construction, but I’m sorry, if it had been construction we’d have seen it in the cold water at some point. I drink a lot of water. The taps run pretty regularly. But there was no sign of that in the cold water. Even after my wife convinced then to send someone to look into it, she was told “first thing Monday morning”, but they didn’t show up to investigate until after 1pm.
Fortunately sometime during the night the taps cleared up so that by Monday we could use hot water again. But clearly, something went wrong with a hot water heater.
Just one of the many lovely things about living at the Landmark at Hatchery Hill.
