sometimes a complete day of prep work is involved just so we can enjoy a hot shower!
let me share with you what that looks like.
when one notices that the water meter is low you must push the blue button.
the blue button fills the water tank located on the roof of our building.
the filling process takes several hours. how long depends on the water pressure at any given moment.
when the water meter is full you must then push the red button.
the red button heats up the ice cold water that is sitting in the water tank on the roof of our building.
the heating process takes several hours. how long depends on how cold the water was when it filled your tank.
another factor is the sun. the sun can heat our water in 1/2 a day easy in the summer. in the winter it doesn’t get hot enough.
*winter further instructions…
when the water tank is full & water is heated you then must plug in the special “thaw out my pipe” line.
the special “thaw out my pipe” line then heats the metal wire that extends from our water tank on the roof to our shower.
this process takes between 5 & 10 minutes.
then, and only then, do we enjoy a well earned hot shower.
one final note – don’t stay in too long… as the water tank on the roof holds only enough water for 2 not-too-long showers!
now that your shower process is completed, you’re not done yet!
it’s now time to use the mop to soak up the mess on the bathroom floor.
since our shower is literally a small area located between the toilet and the sink, marked by a shower head fastened to the wall…
it is important to dry up the bathroom floor!
