Broken hot water tank

On Wednesday night, I went downstairs to the basement to do some laundry. There was warm water on the floor. Luckily, I had caught it early. My hot water tank had a leak.

A nice water tank expert came over on Thursday to inspect the tank. I need a new one. He's returning later today to swap my old tank with a new one.

For the last couple of days, I have been using cold water to shower. I was oddly fine washing my hair and showering the first night. A few hours ago, it felt too cold. I did take breaks.

I will say that I like cold showers. I feel so relaxed afterwards, which I wasn't expecting!


  1. Oh lucky you caught it before it became a mega problem. I do so dislike plumbing issues. Glad you found the cold showers relaxing. I HATE them, even tho i may be dripping from sweat. At best, i'll do a lukewarm shower. but cold water will stress me out!

    1. Same. Fortunately, I haven't experienced too many plumbing issues in my life. It truly sucks, especially during a pandemic.

      I didn't think that I'd like cold showers. It is an initial shock to the system, but it gets used to it fairly quickly. I think I'll move to a lukewarm shower. =)
