I called the plumber and he came right away. He had to pump the water out as the drain was plugged and then he cleaned out the drain. It took about 4 hours. The good news is that it did not get high enough to affect my new water heater I put in last month, nor the furnace. The bad news is I am going to have to throw out a lot of stuff. The good news is I have been wanting to get my basement cleaned out so now I will have to do it. The bad news is I will have to take a blogging break for awhile until I get the mess cleaned up. The good news is maybe now I can get my basement organized to use as a craft/work room.
I'll be checking your blogs and perhaps leave a comment as time permits.
Have a good week. I know mine will be busy.
