WE GOT A SUMP PUMP





















Yeah, our sump looks like a cheerful-yet-ineffectual robot. I think I'll call him Gary.

I-yi-yi! Congratulations on the new sump pump...I don't really envy you the process though.

the pix of the bucket with a pipe in one side and a pipe out the other reminds me of those word problems from high school algebra where Pipe A is dumping something at such-and-so a rate while Pipe B is draining it away at a different rate and your job is to figure out how much is actually in the bucket @ any given time.

Suddenly, though, I'm also struck with the whole casual relationship of RENTING a pad vs. owning it, too...

We've got one too. It was here when we moved in. It drains out washer and when the power goes out the battery system kicks in and it goes "Bweep, bweep, bweep" every 3 seconds. It's highly annoying but one learns to live with it.

that first pic is awfully reminiscent of 90% of my Saturday nights as a youth.

Wow. Congrats on the new apparatus.

YAY! Victory over basement flooding! Mission Accomplished!

(oops. didn't mean to curse Gary before he's even had a chance to prove himself!)
