So we have no hot water, and in the beginning of a week long heatwave, my smelly self is angry. Our stellar landlady won't. Return our call, so maybe you guys could help me? I'm not sure if our water is gas or oil. Our stove is gas , but heat oil. I looked at the thing, but I can't tell what it is. Can anyone help me, since if it is oil then we are probably all out and that is h problem.
