    no hot water?when is YOUR turn?

    http://www.oaomoek.ru/ru/

    very simple and easy. nothing to type, just to search.
    area, district,street and building number and the two meters will tell you from when and how long you will have to do with either a sponge bath, shower with friends or lucky you, you have an alternative little hot water boiler that will tidy you over.
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....

    Made sticky.
    I'll make sure to be on the dacha when the moment arrives.
    We, the willing, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, that we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

    Hot Water

    You can probably buy one of those electric machines that heat up the water as it flows (Hotels use them), but make sure the cables in your flat/apartment can cope with the current they use, otherwise you may experience other problems (fires).

    *Benedikt* made such a suggestion
