No-Cost Extremely-Warm Water! Offer Ends October...

Secret Dubai blogged about the perennial summer phenomenon of hot and cold taps being reversed. I just couldn't believe this report in today's Gulf News:

'Very hot tap water has been causing major discomfort for people, who complained against unsheltered water tanks on rooftops of buildings and villas in the city.'

For goodness' sake, you get NO-COST EXTREMELY-WARM WATER for four months of the year, and you complain about it! All you have to do is turn off your water heater and it'll cool down and you'll get cool water coming out of your hot tap. I seriously hope we don't get municipalities panicking about this non-problem and ordering landlords to build insulated rooms around their rooftop storage tanks.

When I lived in a villa (in Doha) rather than in an apartment I was seriously tempted to go up on to the roof and paint the water tank matt black. Logically if white water tanks produce hot water for four months of the year, a black water tank would be good for six months or more.

Is it possible that I started this 'cold tap produces hot water' discussion here?
