  • I give up !
  • Went from this to this.
    Big rains here Sunday, Sunday night, Now there is 12" of water and the side bank has caved in on part of the forms.
    Big time sad.

  • That's a real pi$$er... Hate it when it does that..
    Can you dig a trench out from the low corner to an outfall. That way you could drain it without a pump and you would not need to worry in the future.
    Other then that the only thing to do is to pump it out with a trash pump and let it dry out. Same thing happened to a house we were doing down at the river and we talked the man with a back hoe into digging over to the outfall. Then we put in a drain with some stone over it and it worked like a charm.

  • Don't give up, just give a few days and it'll dry out. It's not like you have to start for scratch.
    We had the same storm yesterday ending in the early morning hours. 3" of rain and 60 mph winds. Power lines, trees, branches down every where. All schools and most banks and businesses closed today. At least we don't have to shovel or plow our way to the road.
