My basement flooded!

:iconzodiacgal:
zodiacgal Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Welp, when I came home from my martial arts class, my basement was flooded with several inches of water. :stare:

A very big mess to clean up, using only rags and mops. (no, I do not have one of those water vacuums, though I wish I did)

:iconorzplz:

Bonus complaint: All the tickets for 'The Hobbit' were sold out! :iconcryingplz:

Anti-complaint: One of my friends is back from a trip! :icondummywooplz:

That happened at my old house after a rain storm. Now all I get in the garage are mice.

You don't have a sump pump in your basement?

I saw the Hobbit with my boyfriend, apparently he was dissapointed because it didn't go through the whole book.

I was ready to go, my ass fell asleep after sitting for three hours.

The hobbit will be a trilogy. That's why it didn't go through the whole book :facepalm:

I can't say I've ever experienced that, but I can imagine how much that would have sucked. =/

Was it just from general overdose of water or...?

There were some plumbers over to fix something else, and they forgot to attach the hose back to the washing machine. :cry:

How could a hose not being on your washer cause a flood?

:iconzodiacgal:
zodiacgal Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Welp, it caused the flood since instead of the water going into the washing machine, it went on the floor.

That doesn't make any sense. If a supply hose was disconnected it would of course have to be turned on for water to be shooting all over the place.

It WAS turned on. I ran the washer not knowing it wasn't connected DX

There are only 2 lines going to your washer - hot and cold. If the lines weren't hooked up to your washer the water spigots would have to be turned off or water would be everywhere. If you run your washer nothing would happen because the water was turned off. If you turn the water on and the hoses aren't connected again water would be everywhere but you would know it as soon as you turned on the water. Sounds more like a troll post as you don't know what you're talking about.

:iconwthplz: The hose was NOT connected, so when I ran the washer, the water, instead of going INTO the washer, WENT OUT OF IT AND SPILLED EVERYWHERE. I left the basement, thinking all was normal! When I came back, there were several inches of water, okay?

A few months ago we had a flood at work and we used old blankets and bed linen to absorb the water and then chucked em out. Dunno if that idea helps but we found it really handy because they absorbed so much more fluid and all we had to do was chuck em on the ground and use our feet to guide it all over the floor. Good luck with cleaning the basement up!

Quite a bit... some bookshelves got ruined (the books are ok though) and we had to get rid of our rug down there... the floor is a mess too.
