Floods? Bad.


You never want to wake up to loud alarms telling you that there is standing water in the basement.

You sure don't want to find LOTS and LOTS of standing water.

And a blocked sump pump, with debris keeping the pump level-switch from engaging.

You don't want that.

Your whole day goes down from there. . . .

A little bleach and a mop, good as new.

So you need to keep that shop vac a little longer, do ye?

Why, no, tomanon -- that one was for an ex-wife, and she no longer needs it [after rebuilding her HVAC system] [and no, that's not a euphemism].

This flood was in the basement of a woman who had the foresight to own a shop vac. . . .
