I know that most of you didn’t read the previous post about our busted/no good/rotten water heater. Take a second and scroll down to catch up. It’ll take but a minute.
Ok… You’re back. So, the plumber people gave us the news: Our water heater was dead. Yeah, we got that.
They were happy to replace our old water heater for $1500. Which is a lot of money. But, we asked… What else ya got?
Editor’s note: Lynn and I have longed for an instant water heater for the bathrooms because they currently take, no kidding, four minutes of water flow before anything becomes even lukewarm. And, we’re in the middle of a drought. So, the state-suggested 5 minute shower is actually ONE minute.
Trust me, there are things I cannot clean in one minute.
Also, the water heater is in the kitchen and we want to remodel.
So, we talked to the plumber boss and we settled on an Instant-Hot-Water system. It’s a bit more pricey. Also, We could use the space as a kitchen cupboard. An additional 50 cubic feet!
But, really, we’re talking about the bidet. No one wants to talk about it. Elephant in the room. The French say “Bih-Day.” The English: “BEE-day.” The girls: “Butt Washer.”
The previous owners of our house built one in to the master bathroom. But, trust me, you don’t want to sit around (literally) for four minutes waiting for warm water to flow. Because, cold water THERE is enough to make you jump. Believe me, I tried it.
These things will change your life. (I’m not kidding.)
So, the plumbers assure of that we’ll have warm water within 30 seconds. Because, my ass if they don’t. Literally.
