    I have the plumber coming out today because I keep getting sewage pouring in my sump tank and the last storm almost made it overflow. Why can't we just get a nice couple days of rain instead of a fucking hurricane and a torrential downpour?

    You have a bad check valve. You'd better get that sombitch fixed.

    Love when raw sewage gets in the stormwater. You ever see those satellite shots when they dump overflow into Lake Michigan??? Barf.

    How much does that run? Permaseal was trying to get me to have them install their check valve system which runs about $6K. Unless they can 100% fucking guarantee no more overflow I don't think I can afford that.

    Are you talking about the little hole in your basement getting filled up? The check valve is right in that little pit. It's a $20. part to replace yourself.

    The only thing I don't miss about not having a basement is the sump pump.
