            I got me a new kitchen but it's been the biggest nightmare 10 days. 

            Day 1 - Old kitchen ripped out.  Midday - telephone call.  The builders have walked off the job because asbestos was suspected under the floor tiles.  Asbestos workers arrive in the afternoon and condemn the flooring.  Kitchen is sealed with warning stickers on the door.
            Dat 2  - Asbestos clearers turn up and get rid of the asbestos and cover the floor in hardboard (not a great job)
            Day 3 - Kitchen fitters fit the kitchen and put my washing machine and cooker in.  No hot water
            Weekend Day 4/Day 5 No hot water
            Day 6 Cooker removed. Walls tiled  Promised a boiler engineer would arrive. He didn't arrive. No hot water.
            Day 7 Remaining non tiled walls and doors painted. No hot water. No cooker. Contact boiler engineer
            Day 8 New flooring laid.  No hot water. No cooker.
            Day 9 All white goods (fridge etc) put back into kitchen.  Boiler engineer calls - says that the sink and the entire unit plus the fitted work surface coming off the sink will have to be removed as there is some sort of blender filter for the hot tap that has been set wrongly.  Removes bath panel looking for this filter and breaks bath panel.  Cannot find the filter.    Contacted kitchen fitters and they say its the boiler - boiler man says its the kitchen fitters.  Contacted site supervisor and he arranges another boiler engineer to call tomorrow. No hot water. I installed the gas cooker myself.
            Day 10 (today) I had a theory about the hot water and lack of it.  I thought that perhaps the washing machine was something to do with the problem and that if we turned the hot tap leading to the washing machine off, it might solve the hot water problem.  The engineer arrives and I tell him my theory.  He does all his checks on the boiler (which is actually heating the water but just not delivering it to the taps).  He says they have switched the hot pipe with the cold pipe when they installed the sink.  I said lets try my theory and we pulled the washing machine out, switched off the hot tap inflow pipe.  Guess what - HOT WATER!

            This has been the most awful 10 days.  Couldn't cook, couldn't bath, boiling kettles to wash, wash up and general cleaning.

            I'm just glad its over. 

            Do you have a nightmare home story to tell?

            Im glad you got that taken care of my dear.My nightmare was when i had to stay with my mom while my house got ready.It was a 2week nightmare.Not only were we cramped in her 2 bedroom condo my mom and i dont really get along.Sure we love each other but 2 hens cant control one roost.I would tell the kids no to something and then they would ask granny and she would override what i said which caused lots of conflict. Also she would complain i was to strict as far as the teens expecting them to do homework before tv and games and on the weekends they are to study for an hour and then their free.It was her house so i gave in but i jumped for joy when i was free.

            Makes us realize the things we take for granted. i had a hot water heater go out and took a couple days before i could get it replaced. I was thinking it won't be so bad, at least i will have water.

            How wrong i was! I never realized just how cold, cold can be until i hopped in the shower. I can't imagine nine days with no hot water.

            Glad you are nice and toasty warm again blue

            Congratulations on your new kitchen blue 

            Glad you found the cause to you lack of hot water.  It's amazing what people take for granted imo.
