We finally have water.
There's a substitute pipe for nearly 30 houses with individual connections to all. The plumbers (3) worked for 13 hours and some. 30°C at best in the sunshine. I have to thankful for their hard work today. These were the guys from the insurance company, so they wanted to do a proper job and not just cowboy around.
I don't know what is the next step. Perhaps sue the company that did the previous plumbing and wait for them to fix it. Or fix it for real and then sue the company. The company is notorious for not parting with money without court order so...
Anyway. I'm gonna wash my hair this evening! Simple pleasures!
