We averted a flood in our basement this morning. Oh my, we have been through the flooding scene before but this is the first time that the alarm alerted us to the fact that it was dead and the water was rising in the well. My husband noticed the buzzing this morning when he went down to make the coffee. He came back up and told me and we went down together. Everything looked fine but the hole is covered. He left for work and I was left with my worries.
I was half way to school when I decided I should turn around and face the music or I might really regret it. I dialed the plumber and got his wife who told me she thought he could come right over after dropping his daughter at school. He arrived ten minutes later and pronounced it dead. A new sump pump installed $345, no flooding, priceless!
