I can’t keep up with the flooding using squeegees and brooms, so I switch to using a shop vac. Based on the bucket size, I calculate that water is entering my house at a rate of 54 gallons per hour. After 12 hours of nearly continuous heavy use, my shop vac’s motor burns out. I have to borrow another one to keep pumping out the water.
Meanwhile, a contractor stops by my house to provide an estimate, and suspects that part of my flooding problems are due to the wrong type of concrete used in the remodel.
