We had a sump pump failure and flooded basement last week. Now we are in the process of looking at replacement options for our old carpeting. We are thinking laminate or vinyl plank flooring. Any suggestions? Also, floor is concrete so will we need to install subfloor with either/both? Thanks

Sorry about the sump pump failure. For peace of mind, you may want to consider adding a second sump pump above your regular one. We built a new house last summer, and we added one that is hooked into the water line. It runs off the water pressure if the electricity goes out.


Which manufacturer? I have been debating at basepump and another brand for the last month.

Did you tie into the existing pumps exit pipe? Does it have to be inspected by the city?
