We (the mrs. and I) have a "sump pump" in the basement which usually does a little bit of overflowing onto a concrete floor... but, just today (after the out-of-control rainstorm) in NJ, I noticed that the pump is now getting a tad out of control.
The ENTIRE basement floor is covered with about 3" of water and the "sump pump" is running at FULL FORCE-
so, the question basically is for anyone to help us out...
We are since we are NEWLYWEIRD HOME-OWNERS... how does one empty the basement (without owning either- a wet-vac, without tons of money flowing thru our pockets + without causing more back pain to someone as in much torture than I already am before seeing this water problem)?
Do we wait for the "sump pump" to take its course or do we act fast?
THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME
