Inadvertly Added an Indoor Pool


Originally uploaded by ryanmshea.

On Friday night one of my pipes decided that the pressure was just too great and it couldn't go on. It gave up all hope of holding water and cracked, spewing gallon upon gallon of water throughout my basement.

Fortunately we were notified somewhat quickly about the disaster. Stacey and I were on the scene quickly with wet-dry vacs, dehumidifiers, fans, and a trash can to hold all the sloppy water. This shot shows just a few of the massive "air movers" that the Service Master disaster recovery experts put in place to help dry out the basement.

The irony is that the plumber was scheduled to replace all the pipes last Sunday, but had to reschedule. Not good.
