Vivid downpour tests our drainage to the limit...

I was going to spend the night at Vivid but the heavens opened and it poured down so we cancelled.
I thought the sump pump was going to cope but on inspection the next day, we found the electrician standing at the top of the stairs in bare feet.
Bad sign!
It turns out that the pump float got tangled in the cables (it's a temporary unit) and failed to start.
So it filled up and overflowed in the night, leaving two to three inches of crappy water in the garage and into the storerooms at the back. Luckily it wasn't quite high enough to cause damage to the stored stuff, but it still made a mess.
Left-over acoustic insulation floating out the door...
