    Planned outage messages are included with our bill.

    I live in a trailer park that's being "updated", and the clowns that they hired to do the work broke two water mains two days in a row. Unbelievable the amounts of incompetence that is out there because of COVID. Companies are just hiring any ol' Joe Blow to drive a tractor.

    The first day it happened, everyone on the block, including myself, was without water for over 12 hours. Completely unacceptable.

    The next day, when they broke ANOTHER main, thankfully my water stayed on. Sure made a hell of a mess in the road though.

    And don't even get me started with the 5 power outages in 3 months either.....

    I never get notified when my water is going to be off for repairs. Never thought it was a problem.

    I'm confused. Were you mad because there was no water or that your wife was screaming at you about it?

    I remember when the reclaimed water system in my neighborhood went out once for three whole hours and our sprinklers wouldn't work. My poor lawn was dying of thirst! :fist:

    Go see a movie and freeze in their a/c for a couple of hours, shop at the indoor mall, lunch at Hooters, hit ColdStone for some ice cream, come back home and by then it's chilly again.

    It depends on what I was doing the minute the water stopped.

    Was I in the shower, covered in soap steaming down my face? Then I'd be pissed.

    Other than that, don't really care.

    Well, then, they should have the courtesy to always shut it off only when the customer is taking a nap. How hard can it be to find out? :)

    Wells are great 99% of the time. But when the pump dies, you're gonna be without water for a heck of a lot longer than a few hours. Ask me how I know x 3....

    familyman357 I'd be more cynical, but my apathy prevents it.

    I wonder the cost to inform everyone water will be off is? Figure $20 per hr per worker at least. Just do the work. Most will figure it out, put it on company website, phone message.

    Well today was a great customer service experence, called the company that made the Faucet in my Kitchen sink. DELTA.

    Told the lady it leaking I am in need of a NEW Cartidge for the Faccet. Was told they have a LIFETIME GUARANTEE. New part was shipped out at ZERO COST to me. Should have the fix early next week.

    Nice someone support their product, and the part was in STOCK..
