Water Heater Woas……

Here I was minding my own business, last Sunday morning.  I turned on my shower to heat up the water and to my surprise it NEVER heated up.

Yes, you guessed it…  The beast decided to take the day off – FOREVER!

So being the practical kind of girl that I am, I called my home warranty people, scheduled an appointment for their plumber to come out.  That should do me right? WRONG!

After talking with the service tech aka the Plumber guy, I found out that while my home warranty will cover the water heater, the install, the haul away and even the earth quake straps, I was going to be out an additional 320 dollar for “Modifications”.  Talk about sticker shock, here I am thinking sure I’m covered for the complete install, only to find out not so fast!

So yesterday, as I’m still showering in tepid water, I made some calls… Warranty people first, then my reliable plumber Joshua’s Plumbing, who is amazing if you live in so cal and need a fantastic plumber who won’t screw you over.  and then made my decision.  I took the cash out option, so I could have Josh install the new water heater.  When all is said and done it will cost me $40.00 more to have Josh do the work than some plumbing outfit I don’t know, but I know that having it done by Josh means it will be done right!

So come this Sunday… hot water will be MINE!

In the mean time … it’s time to get cracking on homework, only one more week till finals for summer semester.  YAHOOOOIE!

Have an amazing weekend!
