Why are those balloons floating just off the floor like that? Remember the flood we had in January? Well, we thought we had fixed it all and capped off the floor drain. Tonight’s heavy rain has come in through the basement door instead.
Because we discovered it at ten o’clock, we have really struggled to get a pump here. There is now about four inches of water throughout the basement, and still no pump. The damage is going to be that much more extensive due to the higher water.
Maybe we are just not meant to own a basement.
Update: If this ever happens to you in North Vancouver, call A1 Drainage. All the other outfits we called weren’t sure if they even had a pump. Bernard showed up with a pump and a camera and tracked the backup to the District property line.
