earth is not home to me


« on: Wed 7 July, 2010 - 11:11 pm »

isn't


first time since its been installed that its run out of hot water, and I don't think its reheating any 

I've checked what I think are the water cylinder fuses and they look okay, what else could it be? 

do I phone the plumber or the electrician?

It can take quite a while to heat more up if it's run out

I am hoping desperately this is the case...but it shouldn't have run out in the first place as there wasn't much hot water used today

just wait until morning before panicking, you'd call an electrician I'd suspect, if it's recently installed you'll have a warranty eh?

its probably coming up 2 years, so I'm not sure. I will certainly wait until morning 
just checked the overflow pipe and its certainly not coming out, but then would it still once its cold?

I think it only comes out when it's hot - like it over boils. Keep an eye out once it's warmed up JUST in case

If it's a low pressure Cylinder, it will come out of the pipe when it's cold too, the valve on the bottom of the Cylinder is adjusted so it won't overflow.

is this a singular hiccup, or something I'll have to watch from now on? 

I just couldn't understand why it ran out of hot water, when its done more of a load before this without probs - a damned site better than the old cylinder, thats for sure!

ripple control is done by the power company, from time to time they do have faults and the relays switch off but dont switch back on again, just a glitch that happens sometimes

It wouldn't be a man cave if there wasn't talk of nipples in here - It's to be expected 

Where's the girl drapping herself over the car picture? I notice that's missing. Hope Danny hasn't taken it to the toilets again  eek
