    i've been sitting here trying to get up the nerve! it's been about 40 years since i've had a cold shower.

    my 1 year old water heater leaked most of it's water last night. you ever step on wet carpet first thing in the morning? :nooo:

    i have to meet someone for an early breakfast (i don't HAve to but i'm in lust :) ) so i'm going to man up. i have 2 hours to find my balls!

    i should probably call the plumber too. :bigthink:


    when is the last time you had to shower in cold water?

    Had to last year, thought it would be no problem but it fucking sucked. Be sure to wash your hair so it's extra miserable.

    A few years ago. It's only brutal for the first minute. Then yer body adjusts. Plus yer showering in rapid speed so it's not that horrible.

    About 5 weeks ago. My hot water heater died while I was still recovering from spine surgery. Called a place and got them to do the job the next day. $1100 bucks and 50 dollar tip to the dude. He did the whole job of taking my old one out and installing the new one by himself in 1 1/2 hours.

    Our water heater went in May. It was 40 years old, flames were shooting out of the damn thing. We live in the country so it took 3 days to replace.

    So 2 mornings of cold showers.

    The best part: I'm a new/naive homeowner. I asked the plumber how long I should expect this new fancy heater to last, since the old one was basically original to the house 40 years ago.

    He said expect to get 5-6 years out of it. :facepalm:

    dang man you got an expansion tank?

    My neighbor refused to install one. He's on his third water heater in 7 year..

    They are pretty important now. also, screw that shit they sell in the big box stores. Get yourself a bradford. Got 17 out of the last one and 20 out of the one in my old house.

    1100 bucks? How much of that was labor? I thought water heaters ran around 5-600 bucks uninstalled. 500 bucks for an hour and a half of labor seems a bit high.
