My basement want stop flooding..
Yesterday morning got up sucked water with a shopvac for about 5 hrs.. Today I got up even worse.. I went to town and recruiting a buddy to help me.. We used shop vacs (plural) for 7 hrs.. I dug trench in the rain... Very cool.. We finally get the floor dry. I still got water coming in as we speak.. Guess ill stay up all night and babysit it.. I cant wait till it quits raining and I can fix all this drainage stuff. Both days I was wanting to get some Christmas post on here for yall early birds but ive been clearing water instead.. I am trying to spread the times around a little bit.
Any of yall have basements and had water issues? I believe mine is coming in where the concrete meets the block. In that little seam. My pipes taking water away from the house have been there for ages so that will be my first step in getting rid of it. There probably clogged with mud and who knows what else..
Anyways that where ive been. Probably want get to hunt in the morning either. This was my week to hunt. But the weather has not cooperated. We got 5 inches of rain in 1 day. Then followed up with rain today.. I hope it snows.. Then I will have a break until the snow melts.. Woo hoo.
