Glad it ended up being covered. My folks never finished their basement b/c of periodic flooding when the electric would go out, killing the sump. Dad now has a battery backup sump, a small generator for longer outages (think ice storms), *and* he keeps a brand new one ready to install. They also have almost everything in the basement on shelves about 9" off the floor or in plastic bins, which will often float through the mess unless they are too heavy. They at least have the bonus of being 18" tall so the water won't get into them unless everything goes south in a huge hurry.

I'm thinking about getting a portable pump in case the new one fails in the future. My dad thought they were over $400, but I've had other people tell me lately that the are only around $150. It was so crazy how fast my basement filled up. Within an hour my 1000 square foot basement was 4 inches deep.

Luckily I don't have any problem with the power going out. In two years its only flickerd twice and has never gone out. It's probably because I'm 2 blocks from the board of light and power.
