First of all, it’s pronounced “geezer,” like the disparaging name for an old man. And secondly, most of you will know it as a water heater… though what you see here probably in no way resembles the water heater you have in your house!
That’s right, it’s a metal box. This is our brand new geyser, just waiting to be installed. It’s to replace the old geyser, which our plumber made by himself – it was 5 sheets of metal welded together. But this one… it’s state of the art!
It even has insulation! I kind of feel bad calling this one a geyser now. The old water heater deserved its nickname, but this one is so nice and new, and it works so well!
It lives in our roof (gravity = water pressure) and I just wish I could have been fast enough with the camera to capture the plumber and his assistant raising it to the roof outside Abigail’s room. They didn’t bring a rope, so instead they borrowed the most “rope-like” item in our yard to hoist it up – the garden hose.
