    Unhappy AHHHHHHH Flood......!!!

    Well, yesterday my mom, dad, and I came back from some chores we had to do in town @ like 2PM....

    We came back, and I opened the front door because my parents were gtting stuff out of the car...

    I walk in... and notice that the carpet on the way to the kitchen looks darker than usual....

    I'm like WTF????

    I walk to it, and I hear/feel "Squish..Squash..."

    I then yell out..... FUUUUUUUUUUUUUU********KKKKKKK!!!!"

    It turns out that our water filter exploded while we were gone for the 4 hours.

    Basically our whole downstairs is in ruins... it will probably cost @ least $7-10K to fix...

    : sigh :

    damn, that sucks. I know how it feels. my mom's h2o tank burst last year, and the water ran for about 7 hours before she got home from work. Insurance covered most of it, but I lost about 2500 worth of stuff I had stored there, and mom lost items that money just can't replace.
    good luck with the clean up. I hope your insurance company won't try and go cheap on you w/cleanup.
    The compnay that came out to my mom's was great. They dried everything, deodorized, and did whatever they do to prevent mold/mildew. It worked, as there have been no mold issues down there.
    Good luck!

    rent one of those big de-humidifiers. There huge with a multi-gallon tank.
    They can suck gallons out of the air overnight.
    Once you get an area de-watered, close it off with one of these and it gets the water out of walls and floorboards etc ...
