Last night the water pipe to our gas hot water system broke and gushed water all over the laundry. I had the plumber out this morning he said he can't fix it and to call the gas hot water people. I called them and they can't come out until tomorrow. Luckily we have electric hot water in our ensuite so the kids can still have showers. I just don't have any hot water to do the dishes. I hope this isn't going to cost too much to fix or that I don't have to buy a whole new system Yay me - I had to give up work today and will have to give up any work tomorrow too Stupid hot water system.

Hope your hot water is fixed soon--there's always something with a house! No hot water to do the dishes--guess that means you'll have to go out to eat

I had to replace the air filter to our furnace due to some flooding.

Glad that the water didn't touch the furnace enough to need replacing.

Good luck!

I heated up pies and vegetable pasties in the oven and we used disposable plates

We have the gas and water shut off valves/taps underneath it so I didn't have to race outside to do anything

The gas man came and fortunately he had a part on him. He explained what it was that broke, which was what the plumber thought it was. He checked it over and have it a clean bill of health. He said it was just one of those things that happen over time because the part is plastic and some people never have a problem and some do. So no new hot water system for us. He said the office will send me an invoice for the repair. I'm assuming a few hundred dollars, thankfully not the thousands I was dreading if we had to replace the whole thing
