Just wanted to wish all those that may be involved in the rain & flooding in the New England states the best of luck. Hope that no one is in harms way, stay safe & dry, as they say this too will pass. God Bless

Don't forget NJ, home of Bound Brook (Drowned Brook), only a a few miles from me.

I'm still trying to figure out what to do about my friend's basement, which began to take on water again midday yesterday. Brand new furnace just installed too. I dug a ditch in the front gravel driveway to lead water away for the time being, made sure the gutters are clear, put temporary long extensions on the leaders. I'm thinking waterproofing the basement walls is the only practical way to go.

Water is probably the hardest thing on earth to keep out. Good luck with finding a solution, in the mean time I`ll join with Fred, it sure couldn`t hurt.

I made it through with a pump and a shop vac. But damn if water doesn't find every crack in a house. I had water coming in everywhere. I don't know how I'll plug up all the leaks....
