Other things to note
It's unsual, but sometimes they cut the water for a day without previous warning. Normally, the service is restored at night or in the early hours of the cut. If this happens, do not despair, it is only temporary. Other important issue to mention is that the water heater works fine for short showers, so in case you like to take long showers with extremely hot water, maybe you will dislike this issue.
