In Response To: WET BASEMENT (Laura)

I would go with the sump pump because it is not likely to rain another 2.5 inches any time soon. I don't see an urgent need to spend $10K to fix something that happens infrequently as 17 years. I would also examine the grading around the house and look if rainwater can be diverted away from the house by the use of rain channels. I will definitely spend money on installing the rain channels if they will help.
