People don't have tinacos? We always had one (at home, too — not referring to the hotel here)...

Yes we do but it's not a huge one.....plus you never know what could happen with the city and CFE. :rolleyes::doh2:

7:50nand we still have water in Playacar,,,,

If you pumped water from your underground cistern to fill your rooftop tinaco, both your tinaco and cistern will be full. You can continue to use water from your rooftop tinaco until it runs out, then refill it from your underground cistern until it runs dry because the city's CFE-powered pumps will be shut off, meaning no more water to the underground cistern at your house until 5 pm. Should be enough to last you all day, unless Tuesday is your laundry day, or you run a community shower and the neighbors want to use all of your water first, or you own a car wash, or a dog wash, or whatever. Suerte. (I took my shower at 6 am too, and refilled everything, including some empty garefones - you, know, just in case all the water clocks stop running at 3 o'clock, and 5 o'clock never comes... TIM.)

That (what beam-eye describes) was always our approach, in Merida and Cancun as well as in Playa, precisely because that's exactly right: you never know what TPTB are going to do. And in most cases, at least, that was sufficient until the situation returned to normal, perhaps with slight modifications to behavior in the meantime. :) So I asked because I thought upon reading the initial comments here that maybe we were not as normal In that regard as I had been thinking...

Anyway, yes, good luck!

Reserve water now. :truce:

I received the following message last night for Playacar owners:

Estimado Propietario / Inquilino

Buenos días,

Por medio del presente les informo que mañana a partir de las 7:00 am hasta las 17:00 hrs (5:00 pm) no habrá bombeo de agua por parte de Capa en toda la ciudad. Por esta razón les informamos para que tomen las medidas necesarias.

Saludos cordiales.


It could be going off any minute... :ohno:

Babaloo 06-24-2014 09:23 AM

We have a 10,000 liter cistern.
We won't run out of water.
