If you'd quit hoarding all those hoppy pops you might have a little more room in there, you know?

Did they make popcorn and watch a movie? Did they make a blanket fort, and tell ghost stories and stay up past midnight?

Checking ebay sales and messages, preparing for return of unsold antiques from Junkstock Omaha, thinking about making some breakfast, riding the trike to the store for breakfast food before it rains and then thinking oops, too late!

Just got back and the only pedestal pump both places had were the same POS i already have with the broken impeller. And they don't sell replacement impellers and the old one looks heat welded onto the motor shaft. Most of the new pumps are submersibles with a float that hangs by a wire. That wont work for me as the pump pit is only 8" square and a foot deep. The new ones need at least 12-15" for the floats to swing. The pedestal pumps floats slide vertical so they don't need a wide pit. So for now I bought some fittings to adapt an old pool pump to a garden house and pumped it out that way. That thing had all 3-4" of water out in less than 10 minutes, I just had to keep an eye on it to unplug it as it has no float. That will have to keep me until I find a better pedestal pump that doesn't use a plastic impeller.

 
Like I said,you engineers are devious.{#Lol}

 I'm just a lowly electronics technician.

 Maybe a bronze boat impeller replacement job?{#Think}

My house was built in 1890 and has porous brick walls in the cellar. The roof has built in gutters that are useless as the water comes down the steep pitch roof so fast it simply sails right over the gutters and makes waterfalls onto the side of the house under all the steep parts that form valleys. So the water hits the ground and soaks through the walls for up to 2 days after the rain has stopped. A woman in her 80's stopped by a while back to say she was born in the house and that the cellar has leaked ever since the house was built. The only ways to fix it would be to add modern gutters along side the built in ones and/or put in a french drain system around the perimeter. Neither I can afford.

Getting ready to go to bLowes and/or Homely Despot to look at sump pumps. I just replaced it about 6 months ago and the plastic impeller already broke so now my cellar is flooded and its almost up to the bottom of the furnace and water heater which are up on cinder blocks so I can't ignore it anymore. That and its still raining and we are supposed to get another 1.5 -2 inches over the next couple days.

Once again checking up on you people!  Just finished putting my neighbor's chicken thighs in my crock pot cause her oven needs dusting, vacuuming the apartment, adding veggie matter to the compost, dusting everything with a surface and drinking a beer!  Yes - a beer at 1:12 in the afternoon!  But then, I've been up since 4 a.m.  Surely that counts for some wait time?
