The rain, just the rain man.

How is everyone fairing with the rain?

We have had 1.5 inches in Nutter Fort since it started last night as of 7 PM.
Still raining now.
Our creeks and streams are getting muddy and coming up slowly. They are all still in their banks as of now.

Sorry for your misfortune. From what I saw on the Weather Channel I was kinda worried about you, Rod and wvbeer.

Yes, I do know how to fix it. I am good at that kinda stuff. Wanna have the meet and greet in your basement......wait, in your garage....do not want to wade water over to the coffee pot. Then I can look at your problem and offer a solution. I kinda need to see the house and lay of the land to know what is needed.

Was this from a stream flooding, surface run off or bad footer drains?

Thanks Dave, it was from surface run off and no footer drains. I had the yard leveled when I built the garage. Looks like they didn't get the slope just right. I'll look into gettng some more dirt brought in and slope it away from the house. It looks pretty level now. Then I'll figure out what to do.

Dig around the house down to the footer.
Then go three inches below the top of the footer.
Put 2" of clean 57 stone in the bottom.
Schedule 35 preforated pipe goes in next.
If you are on a hill and can do it a natural drain out of this pipe is desireable.
Fill the rest of the hole with clean 57 stone to ground level.
Also the ground should slope away from the house at least 1" per foot for at least 10 feet.
If you do all of these things your basement will never be wet again.

Thanks for the info Dave, I'm going to put a inside french drain in also. That should help out some to.

If your yard is real flat and you have no natural drainage you may have to install a well and a sump pump.
I do not like to use a pump unless I have no other way to drain the french drain.
Some of these rains we have been having would take a huge pump to keep up with the water running in.

Try to stop the water outside the house. Water does damage to the blocks when it comes through them.

I can answer that question. Give us lots of dollars, we can fix your problem.

I just hope they know what they are doing. Ask for references from past similar jobs.
A lot of BS'ers out there. I get to fix lots of others attempts to dry up basements.
