July 29, 2008 – Someday!

Ever since we moved in, I’ve been meaning to take this old, heavy pump out of the basement.  That day never came, until today, when in a fit of basement cleaning, I decided it was time to get the sawz-all and cut it loose from its pipes.

I’m happy to report that the removal was uneventful – I drilled a couple small holes in the pipes going through the wall before tearing into it to make sure it wasn’t holding back water – we think it was for an old cistern that is now filled in with dirt in the front yard.  It sure was an ugly thing and really prevented full use of that part of the basement in terms of shelving and storage.
