    Hello TurboBucket, I don't know if you remember me, but when I first joined you gave me some advice on a plant I had growing. I believe the problem was root rot because of the brownish, algae looking color it had. Anyways, I just want to say thanks. If you want to check out the progress on my plantS, just DM me and I will be more than happy to show you! Peace&Love brotha.
    Yay. A flooded basement. Just what I wanted to deal with.

    Welcome to my world, lol. Whoever built this house ~100 years ago apparently failed to notice the freaking spring when he dug the basement. Turns out, water is stronger than concrete (floors). Now I have the only sump pit around here that "self-fills" from underneath instead of being a catch basin for water flowing in from above (metal "wall" around it with many holes, just dirt on bottom, no flooring material). Capable of filling at least once/hour (and that in near drought conditions) - and it's a pretty large pit. Unfortunately, the pump gave up the ghost a while back, hauling many gallons of water out of it via 5-gallon buckets is "a bit" of a chore, and I can't just stay home and babysit it 24/7, so... Swamp/mold central :rolleyes: .

    Gives me "free" water to flush my toilet though, lol. Wish I trusted it to water plants (and had a way to easily filter it well enough to wash clothes with).

    Still get a kick out of your user name. I had a "turbo [i]heap[/i]" for years - 1986 Buick T-Type ("stealth Grand National), <5 second 0-60 from the factory - and it wasn't "factory" for long after I got it, heh.

    Just rambling, as per usual (terminal exhaustion ;) ).

    Stay cool,
    ~TS~

    Oh you always bring a dry grin to my face. Haha. A bottom filling sump pump is a new one. Some air stones and z7 miracle juice should clean that pit up in about 30 seconds right?

    Ooh the Grand Nationals hold a special soft spot in my heart. That T type would have been cool to see. I had a couple of the supercharged Pontiacs from 15-20 years ago. I love a factory sleeper. Sadly it's more about hauling kiddos than ass now.

    Sold mine when I got divorced. Too many memories. Translation: I was a dumb@ss of the highest caliber. "only 614 horsepower - but a LOT of torque," lol. A bit more in race trim. Only ride I ever owned that I could snap the go pedal to the floor at 50 MPH and get squirrely - and it was an automatic! Kind of looked like grandma's grocery getter that had been thrashed to pieces, too, which was only annoying to start with <GRIN>. Car bought me lunch(+) many times ;) . Never owned one of the '89 TTAs, but would have liked to have one of those Buick V6 powered critters, too. But the G-body was more my "relaxed" style (and there was room to get a little wet in those).

    Time to push a mower around. I have demon grass; literally seen the odd tufts coming up through the snow in February - Summer with lots of rain and it's... something else, IDK.
