I've mentioned before in another thread that water has been coming in my basement when it rains for a long period of time or just plain hard. @Yvonne Smith suggested getting a wet vac and I found a 10 gallon ($5) one at the flea market. Now I'm looking for a quick fix to stop the rain from entering the east side of the house. I've done my homework and getting it done professionally is too expensive and every YouTube video has fallen into that category as well. I'm good at improvising. Here are a couple of ideas I had for quick fixes. Dig a trench and just fill it with cement. I started the trench then had second thoughts - Maybe there is another way. Then thought of this - Secure an awning that would direct the rain away from the house. Pros and cons with each option. I'll be at Lowes when the doors open in the morning.
