Bank owns this house and wanted me to see where the water was coming from.
Seen this mess back there and had to check it out.
The newer part didnt have a floor under the 2' of water,the water was coming
in around the footings.
I packed up my stuff and got the he11 out of there,hope i never get called back!

Reminds me of the scene in Star Wars (the original) when Luke and Han Solo were in the garbage tank in what looked like 4 feet of sludge and Han got sucked under...no way.Leadership...the ability to move forward even when you've burned your foot.

Nothing a couple sticks of dynamite and a bulldozer can't fix...If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

Examples like that remind me why I am glad we don't have many customers with basements around here.But some of the older houses have them and they turn in to ponds around this time of the year.

Hope the Bank is going to fix the water issue before trying to resell the house!?
They took the stair out to get their dollar worth from I'm guessing forclosur?

There wasnt any stairs ever,the part with water is a addition with clay muck
as the floor(no cement).The window in the pic is in front of the garage in the last pic.

what a shame
that is such a shame to have that unit installed and look like that. I can not beleive how the loop pump covers are missing, looks like the wiring in general has no conduit just running wild. Its a shame i wonder if a hvac contractor installed this or if it was some hack job homeowner. Its just a wonder hows it worked this long. For spending as much as they did for the install you would think that they would take better care of it. I know my waterfurnace unit in my basement you could eat off it, its that clean.
