The word is out now. Over the past couple of days Slumlord Zoro has begun appearing in Google and Yahoo searches under all of the keywords that count. Through a bit of cyber sleuthing we've been able to determine that some of the more savvy would-be tenants do indeed search before moving in. That search will henceforth be rewarded with about the biggest heads up anyone could want. Hopefully that will be felt in the Zoro bottom line.

A rental glut is on the horizon. You can do your part by asking Reggie and the other Zoros tough questions in front of apparent tenants you come across in the lobby, elevator and hallways.

False Economy

Since the New Year, the folks at Zoro have reduced water pressure to a minimum in an effort to cut costs. With petroleum prices at an all-time high, no doubt heating up water for a building this size can be pricey.

Water use in one part of the building can have a severe impact on the water temperature at any given time in other parts so cutting back water supply will end up costing just as much if not more as residents spend more and more time in the shower adjusting the hot and cold rather than getting on with their ablutions.

Since residents are paying for but not receiving an adequate supply of hot water [or cold water for that matter] the Zoros may end up making reimbursements for services not received. So much for a money-saving strategy.

The pipes at 1075 Jervis Street are so old and corroded that it takes little more than a hiccup to blow them apart. Rather than replace the pipes, reducing the water pressure is seen as a way of avoiding the inevitable indefinitely. The problem with that theory is that the low-to-no pressure results in air bubbles in the line. The uneven pressure caused by the air as it seeks to escape simply blasts out pinholes in the weakest parts of the pipes. A real savvy strategy that one too.
