    If you are lucky

    but they have a funny habit to renew the system in November so you know about it only turning on the hot water

    Benedikt, when I click on your link I get to the main page of the website. Where to from there? I can't seem to find a tab to click on that deals with the hot water switch off, or anything that allows me to fill in the area I live etc...

    and the reply was, the times and districts/roads/buildings where and when they switch off the hot water is apparently not decided yet. it will be published at a later date....

    Wouldn't it be easier to buy a water heater?

    because as it happens, we use our heater not only during the summer switch of period. as it happened, we had no hot water before yesterday for 2 hours, it was announced beforehand on the entrance door. nice, just turn a handle and have hot water again for the morning shower.
    and as i wrote, that Stiebel Eltron heater is the size of a shoebox and fits even under the sink. it is an electricity heater but since we are not using it permanently, we are ok with it.

    because then for sure they will find 2018 another reason why they have to switch off the hot water during the summer period.
    maybe the pipes are replaced but it will be time to repair the TEZ's. and THAT will need DOUBLE time without hot water.

    looks like i am to long in Russia and assume to often that others also know..

    ТЕЦ= тепло електро цех (sp?) russian acronym for the huge power stations that generate electricity and hot water. turbines are powered by hot water/steam and that -left over- is than used for hot water to heat the buildings central heating system and also the hot water that comes out from the taps in your apartment. that is the reason why NO Russian will EVER use hot water from the tap for cooking, making tea or the like. it is considered -technical water- and fit only for washing the dishes.

    Hot water lockout info

    We were told by our landlord that the information is displayed beggining summer on information boards at the entrace to your building. But this is going to be our first summer, so cannot really testify.
