WALLINGFORD, Conn. (WTNH)-- People in one Wallingford condo complex say they haven't had hot water for more than a week and they want something done about it.
After getting the run-around from the property owner, they came to News 8 for help.
People in that Wallingford neighborhood were told all kinds of a stories like the property owner was waiting for a specific part to fix the pipes and there wasn't enough oil to heat the water.
The shower and bathtub were virtually unused for more than a week and the dishes piled up. The faucet was working just fine but when water came out, it was ice cold.
"I thought I could attempt to take a cold shower and put up with it, but I was in there for like two seconds before I jumped out," said Jennifer McWeeney, a resident.
Jennifer McWeeney and her family live in building 4 of Wallingford's Terrace Gardens Condominiums. For more than a week, residents had only cold water and couldn't get any answers from the property manager.
"Everyone has been calling non stop. Either he doesn't answer, he doesn't call back," said McWeeney.
"I don't want to commit to any day. Maybe today, maybe tomorrow, maybe the day after, I can't tell you for sure, but it'll be ok," said Dominic Barnes, a resident. "He was not trying to address the problem."
Tuesday was day eight without hot water.
By then residents contacted News 8, who along with the people who live there, called the property manager and police.
By Tuesday evening, it looked like something was being done. Neighbors reported seeing a repairman on site and already noticed the water heating up.
When asked if he thought the pressure finally got to him, Barnes said, "absolutely, absolutely, he's a business man, he doesn't want his name associate with this kind of stuff."
When asked is she was happy to finally be getting hot water, Skyla Barnes said, "yeah, a lot."
"I can't wait to take a hot shower for once and I'm sure Mark can't either. Getting up in the morning when it's been cold temperatures and jumping in a cold shower is not fun," said McWeeney.
News 8 called the property manager for answers, but no one returned the calls.
Wallingford police would not comment, only saying they received a lot of complaints about this hot water issue and are investigating.
