Okay, so we have been out of hot water for like 10 days! We started calling the property manager 10 days ago to let him know that the hot water heater wasn't working. He would come over and 'fix' it and the next day when it was time for showers again, there would be no hot water. On his second trip out here, he had someone else come 'fix' it. It was a temporary fix. Again the next night when shower time came, there was no hot water. By this time we are all get a bit upset because we were having to call friends to see if we could use their shower. Last Thursday Dave called AGAIN and told him it was broke to please come fix it. Well, Friday was an Italian holiday, so the property manager wasn't going to be able to have anyone come look at it until Monday. So this time we went to the base gym to shower in nice hot water with REAL water pressure. We all felt so CLEAN. Monday came and the property manager came out again to look at the water heater and took a component out of it, I have no idea what it was he took out, but he said it was fried. He would have to go get the part, so he went and got the part put the new part in an STILL no HOT water!!!!! Tuesday afternoon he showed up again and brought someone with him and they drained the water heater, replaced the thermastat, hooked it back up, and left. When it was time for showers this morning, we HAD HOT WATER!!!! Yeah for hot water!!!
