Updated Water Park Tales  
The good: Plumber got here immediately. We were able to get the last two seats on a 6 pm flight for only the change fee (instead of the $600 apiece they would have been earlier today). The water did not siphon up into the sheetrock at any point (one small area of insulation got wet which I immediately cut out so it would not wick to the sheetrock). All the water is vacuumed up and fans are running to get rid of the remaining dampness. Basic GOOD thing - this happened BEFORE the carpet was put in, not after.

The bad: The rug we bought for the basement is soaked, we've got it dangling over many chairs to try to dry so we can get it to the cleaners. The final finishing of the basement will be delayed by a few days while we make sure everything is completely dry. We'll have to disclose this on our disclosure form.

The ugly: Semi-wet stuff is spread all over the garage. The bill from the emergency plumber *gaaaah*

BUT - we expect to be at Thing, albeit later than originally planned, Goddess willing and the creek don't rise (again)...
Current Mood: relievedrelieved

Oh ugh, sorry to hear this. Jeff and I had a basement flood in the first couple of weeks living here, and it was not fun.

Good luck!!!!!!!!

>>We'll have to disclose this on our disclosure form.<<

You *could* disclose it, or you could just be more creative in your advertising...for example, instead of telling them "the basement was flooded," simply say, "we recently renovated and now have an indoor pool." Ups the value, I think.
