As mentioned earlier, the pump that drives my entire hot water system (heating and hot water for the taps) decided to die this morning. Called the friendly plumber who did my new bathroom sink this morning fairly early, but didn’t have his mobile, so had to leave a message on his answering machine at home. He’s just called back, and confirmed that the pump that died happens to be one of the cheapest piles of junk you can buy. He’ll price up a decent replacement on Monday, and if I accept the price, he’ll be around one evening to fix it.
Gotta love friendly plumbers.
