Huge new basement tank!?!?!

Well no, not exactly. I found about 7" of water in my basement this evening. Yes, this is the same basement I finished just a few weeks ago. Sump pump failure. I am still shaking my head.

I still can't see my own pics, but then again I couldn't see some on another post earlier. *shrugs*. I'm going to bed maybe tomorrow will work out a little better!

Sumphead, I'm so sorry What a BAD April Fool's Day joke. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Thanks guys, I feel better this morning even though I have a lotta work ahead of me. It look as though if the dehumidifier and floor fans work out and dry wall damage I may have the damage limited to about $1500 with a new pump system. I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed on the carpet that is only a month old. If all works well I wont even have to claim it on the insurance. But if there any of the great people on here with experience I would love some DOs and DONTs pointers. thanks agin for the wonderfull AA support.

Oh my. I think that I would cry. Be thankful this was no on an upper level in the house. Then you would have to lose one of those arms. I hope it cleans up for you with out extra hassel.

Well I am on a short break of vacuuming with a new super duty 6.5 HP wet dry. Even after I got the pump working and all standing water off I have still suctioned another 100Gal. It looks as though I may lose the carpet and just might have to remove the bottom two feet of dry wall. UGG! I rented two industrial floor blowers and an industrial de-humidifier. With a new pump system and rental I am looking at close to a thousand without any counting the actual damages (kinda have to wait and see on that). Thanks again all for letting me vent.

Oh ans Ireilly, I did cry a little after working so hard to finish the basement anyway, but shhhhh don't tell anyone.
