Apparently the goal at our house is to move backwards in time to the days of no central heat and no hot water. Last night we didn't even have running water for a while. We're now on week 5+ of no central heating in our house, and day 6 of no hot water. The boiler went kaput weeks ago and had to be moved and reconditioned to get it back in safe working order. To make a long story short, DBF is in the process of: 1. Pulling the boiler out from under the house. 2. Reconditioning it 3. Removing the old water tank 4. Installing a tankless water heater 5. Moving all the requisite plumbing for gas, water, venting, etc. 6. Installing the boiler where the water heater used to be Right now I have no hot water at my house. DBF said it's not looking good for hot water tonight. If there's no hot water TONIGHT, I'm staying at a friend's house until it's done. Period. My patience limit has been reached. ETA - DBF got hot water flowing at 10p on Tuesday evening. He just got his funky-smelling behind out of a much-deserved shower. My funk is going to get washed off in a few.
