    Re: 3 Positive Things Part 5

    Haha thanks Gary, yeah it's not something I'll be too quick to share with my colleagues. I would have done a better job attaching it if the water hadn't been too hot to permit much hesitation, and if I wasn't standing in the airspace of a pair of (non aggressive but I didn't want to try their patience) hornets.

    It's just a regular electric hot water system/storage unit, but was the original one that was installed when the apartments were built. It did supply somewhat excessively hot water.



    Glad to hear that your daughter is doing ok fmn.

    1 -FMN Happy to hear she’s safe and being treated OK and that you’re staying warm by the fire.

    2 - Gooblax- Aggressively hot you say? The Canadaiam standard is set at 60c (140F) has been the cause of alarm and debate for a long time because an adult can get 3rd degree burns in 6 seconds and a small child in 1 second at the recommended temp. The problem is that the bacteria that causes legionnaire’s disease proliferates agréssively under 60c

    3 - I’m pretty sure of 3 things about that “monster”
    - it’s most likely not a standard how water tank and most likely a hot water boiler for heating purposes
    - the cost to Use that thing as a hot water tank must have been as insane as the risk of causing serious harm
    - I’m happy that it finally died and hopefully will be replaced with a more economical and safer alternative. Hot water ranks have a 7 to 10 year life expectancy if I recall correctly.

    BONUS: I’m glad you were never seriously scalded because of that thing!

    In the manual it says that they recommend setting the thermostat to the minimum (60C) and installing a temp limiting device as well.
    Plumber hasn't come around yet - it's only early afternoon. I think he's hoping to get away with just replacing some valves but we'll see. I probably need both a new valve and new system.

    Re: 3 Positive Things Part 5

    I read the manual; "Interesting" heat transfer system. Works like an on demand electric heater but keeps the reservoir at almost boiling temps. Oh well... different countries different gizmos.

    For the sake of curiosity gooblax; what's the date of manufacture printed on the tank? Or has the plumber already hauled it off to the museum

    I forgot to check. He hasn't come yet, and I'm busy avoiding my neighbour who will no doubt have 30mins of b.s. to unload onto me about the water bill because it's still leaking (as she helpfully re-informed me last night).

    Re: 3 Positive Things Part 5

    1. Listened to a song to put me in a slightly better mood this morning.
    2. Email is down at work for the moment so I don't have to do any liaising stuff yet.
    3. I still have a relatively low-brainpower task to complete today.
