water heater today?! Saturday morning found us realizing that our water heater was having issues. Yes, we ended up spending the whole weekend minus that appliance. Troy and I have enjoyed several chuckles at me toting pots of water all over the house. Consequently I was dubbed "Ma Kettle." The posted picture will give you an idea of our weekend. :-) When you have to heat all of your water, it is amazing how little you use!
The plumber has been here for five hours and has hit several snags. Poor guy! Hopefully we will have hot water tonight. A large amount of "junk" came out of the old water heater after it was removed. That seems to be what caused the whole thing to croak.
New bit of info we received from him: If you flush your water heater one to two times a year, they can last for decades. (At the tune of $500, we will be "flushing" ours from now on!)
