When taking a shower, there are surges of scalding hot water, no doubt from toilets being flushed. I'm told the problem can be fixed by replacing a cartridge in the shower head but that I would have to pay about $120 for a plumber to install it. I view it as a deficiency which I should not have to pay for. Has anyone else experienced this problem? My next step is to contact the city's Health and Safety branch.
I have heard this from other residents on my floor. I spoke to the management today and it seems like there are plans underway to get it fixed. I will prefer that building management makes arrangements, buying the parts, and arranging for plumbers etc. Not sure yet if managment intends paying for it or if they will want residents to pay it. I guess they will need OK from board of directors if they were to pay.
