Would not want to be in your shoes if anything happened.

In fact today the newest district in the Hague was opened today with no gas supply at all.

What on earth makes you think it is in the bathroom?

Is your electric water heater in the bathroom?

Gas heaters are installed outside in a ventilated space, they have to be a certain distance away from drains etc as well, as do the gas bottles. Mine is in an open laundry area outside the kitchen, it's main purpose is to supply the kitchen sink. It also has a feed to an outbuilding though, an old servant's quarters, where there is a shower and sink, so we have a backup bathroom any time there is no electricity. The gas bottle is outside the house completely.

Never heard of bath geysers? In the 50's they were very common in Britain.

Those these days have been replaced by water heaters or the central heating system.

FWIW - I laughed a little.

And we have a gas water heating system too. We call it a "tankless" hot water heater. The heating unit thing is outside.

Our central heating runs on gas and we have an 80 litre tank but all over the country gas supply is not being fitted in the new districts. They have sustainable heating. Solar and heat pumps.

I wonder if I could have one here, with the cold weather.

That pic looks insane. If the pilot light goes out, and the room is closed, the drain system will fill up with gas through the bath. If the plug is in, the bath will be full of gas, and someone walking into the bathroom smoking will be an explosion hazard.

The 50's were a long time ago. I have never seen a setup like that, though I have seen electric systems in bathrooms, both small on-demand shower units and tank systems.

Not in the bathroom, but I remember some sort of white thing on the kitchen wall in one of the flats we inhabited in 80s rural Germany, with a pilot light in it. I suppose it must have heated the water. Don't know where the gas came from: presumably somewhere else in the agricultural complex (vineyard) of which the residential building was a part.

I remember somebody coming to repair it and asking me for a "Feudel", which apparently means a rag in northern Germany. I had no idea what he wanted and thought he was asking for a bag (Beutel).

And I'm relieved that Antigua has been spared again. But at the moment it seems like only a matter of time before one scores a direct hit.

The were put in from the 30's to the 60's. The pilot flame was protected and if it went out the gas supply was cut automatically.
