I text my super she will tell the manager this week. I don’t know why it’s happening again since they fix it. They replace some pipe on the six floor.

Either they didn’t fix it right and left a leak or a new leak has developed.
Since you don’t own the equipment, it’ll be their responsibility to fix it.

They said that the radiator valve shouldn’t be turned off my parents had it done 30 years ago in their bedroom. It stoped it only happened when the pressure is very high and we are going to have a other cold spell this Wednesday. I lived in this apartment since I was a child. So the pipes are pretty old. My first apartment was built in 1939 this one 1945. My first one since I was a baby they became co-op later on I heard. We couldn’t stay in our first apartment because we couldn’t get a two bedroom apartment. The first apartment was better because they had kids the one I live in now only had adults. But now they have younger people who live there.
