Somewhere around 1AM, my new 8 month old woke up. up 'till 3... back to sleep... 5AM my middle child asked if we could go for a bike ride... sometime after that I'm sawing logs and am stirred by a noise...WSHHHHHHH...faint but there... ice maker?... I don't care... back to sleep.

while later:
WSHHHHHHH... huh? wha? zzzzz

8 AM
WSHHHHHHH... What the hell IS that? Sound like water...
noise is in basement!!!
Thump,thump, thump(running)... squish, "OH *&&%*&^*!!!!", squish, squish(still running).

WSHHHHHHH...(turn valve) WSHHHHHHH,(turn valve) WSHHHHHHH(turn valve) wshhh, (turn valve) drip,drip,drip,drip

I hate when that happens.We had the pipe that goes into the bottom of the pressure tank do the same thing.Had a lot of work to do,clean up plus get the pressure system back working.Couldn't get any water untill fixed it first.We had just put carpet down as well so that needed to be taken out.What a mess.So I can relate to what you'll be busy doing today.Larry

Bummer of a way to start the weekend. At least it didn't happen when you were away for a while and could have gotten a lot more water in the basement. Good luck on your cleanup and hope it dosen't take to long to get things back in order.

Even the clean ones have to be run thru the washer. The water ended up high enough to get into the duffles of non-seasonal stuff. Seems like we're on load 47 & climbing, but I may be a little high on that estimate.
