My apartment building in Albuquerque is being rehabbed. We live in a 188 unit building on the 2nd floor and the water has been turned off every Mon, Wed and Fri from 8am-6pm for about a year now while the construction people do replacement and repairs.
I have lived here 10 yrs but I have always had cold water even in the summer if I run the tap for a little bit. Unfortunately that's not the way it is anymore. My water never runs cold or even reasonably cool from any of my faucets, no matter how long I let it run.
The contractors have been dealing with constantly busted water lines after turning on the water again.
All the apartments have a water heater and I have tried turning off my hot water line under the kitchen sink to see if that changes anything, but it makes no difference. The manager says it is because it's summer but I am not convinced that is the case.
Can anyone suggest what it might be or any way that I can explain this to the maintenance person to problem solve the issue with the contractor?
