I pumped out the pool about 6" below the rim before going to bed at 10:00pm. I set the alarm for 1:00 am so I could check on everything and the pool is full again. So I have the pump going on the pool. I also checked on the basement and it is filling again. There is a lot of water coming in at the one piece of pvc conduit that is running out to the air conditioner. I don't know if that is the only place or not, but right now it was the only spot I seen because I heard it.

You might want to take a sample of the water, see if there are traces of pool chemicals. Of course, everything is probably pretty diluted by now.

All I can say is wow, I'm sorry.

Looks like you are going to be getting more rain for a while. May have to get another pump, if one is available.

Hey George,
Sorry to hear about the flooding issues as well. All in all, I have recorded 10 1/2" of rain yesterday here in Lancaster County, and it's raining again this morning. I left work early yesterday, due to the flooding around here, and found that it took me an hour and half to go roughly 3 miles. If only we could ship some of this rain to Texas! I guess after seeing what they are going through down there, a little flooding here, isn't bad.

I wish you the best on the clean up efforts, and since I'm not too far away, if you find you're needing help with anything, give a hollar. I'd be more than willing to lead a hand.

You and the Family Take Care,
Troy

Very sorry that your start on an indoor pool wasn't what you'd planned. I hope that everything goes well with the cleanup and with the insurance company! I hope that they pay up for your losses! As everyone else has said, I wish I was able to help!

Ducky, had several this morning. Brian (Bolens 1000) thought he had it under control. They have definitely have found a way in.

Regarding the spammers. We did have quite a few today and the reason they got in is because they registered several months ago before their email domain was added to the filter and now all of a sudden they pop up and start posting as fast as they can. The guys did a great job getting them cleaned up as fast as possible.

As for the basement/indoor pool. We got everything out of the basement now and have it pretty much drained. We also shop vac'd it as dry as we could get it and have one of the dehumidifiers going. Would like to have the second one going too but it isn't working for us yet. Both of them were floating in the water from the flood. Good thing is at least one is working. We also have four fans going and all of the windows open and also the outside access doors to keep the air moving.

One thing, with the outside doors open and high humidity out there, you are defeating the dehumidifier. Best to close house and run AC if you can. It will help suck some of the moisture out.

:iagree: Kenny is 100% correct. Turn the air conditioning on as cold as you can stand it. Your evaporator coil will remove far more moisture than that dehumidifier. Sounds goofy but it works.:thumbs: If you need to turn the heat on so be it.
