You never want a flooded basement

About once a year my entire basement floods with water and ruins everything. To stop that from happening again, I called a plumbing business. They installed drain tile that is made to run the water out of my basement. Since I installed the new drainage system, I fixed up my basement. I added tons of workout equipment down there. I got a bowflex, treadmill, elliptical and a weight bench. I also got a new heating for the home and stored it down in the basement. Needless to say, I was really planning on the drain tile to work. Well, the spring time always brings a lot of rain and snow melting. That is always the time that the basement floods. I did not worry about my workout equipment or my heating system. I figured I was all set. I then made a call to the HVAC business to put away my heater device for the year. They clean it, check for broken parts and get rid of anything that is totally worn out. Well I got the shock of my life when the HVAC contractors came back up to tell me that my entire basement was flooded. They then informed me that it must have flooded long enough ago that mold has formed everywhere. To make matters worse, the heating system was totally destroyed and all my workout equipment had rust on it. So now I have to call the plumbing business and rip them a new one over the terrible drain tile installation. I also have to pay the HVAC company for doing nothing. Finally, I have to replace my brand new heating system.
