The other day, I was in front of my fireplace reading a book.
It wasn’t just any book to have a great time, it was a handyman book! I was trying to learn about the sump pump system since we had a huge problem.
The old sump pump had failed and we were getting minor flooding in the basement. I knew that if I couldn’t get a new sump pump installed, I was going to be in big trouble, so I was desperately learning everything that I could to take on the job. I would have hired a professional to take care of it, but I didn’t have enough money in the bank for a professional install like that. It’s certainly not something that I chose to budget for, and so I was there in front of my fireplace studying that book for the longest time. I eventually looked online to look at the different sump pumps I could go for. I didn’t want whatever cheap sump pump that failed me before, I wanted something that would last. I ended up buying a new pump that was a reliable brand. The actual replacement of the old sump pump was relatively easy. The only thing that annoyed me was all the spider webs I kept running into and I was coughing up dust in the basement because the air quality is lousy down there. I probably should invest in a powerful air purification system to improve the air quality, but that wasn’t my priority. I was so happy when I got the new sump pump installed and everything was working great.
