went into the kitchen late last night and heard something dripping… thought it was outside, but then realized it was in the basement

ran down to discover a ceiling tile on the floor, two wet couches, soaked carpet and water pouring down…

when I could move, I found towels and pails to put down and moved cushions into the basement bathtub…

went upstairs to the main floor and tried to figure out what was leaking… opened the front door to see if something was happening outside….

it was the pump in the fish tank… water was pouring out of it… I turned it off and put down more towels there and moved the pump to the main floor bathtub…

more towels on the floor and then up and down to be sure that all the dripping had stopped…

made for a stressful couple of hours… not sure what caused the problem, but had to leave it for the night…

must have run up and down the stairs a dozen times checking to be sure that no water was misbehaving

tonight my grandson and I figured out that somehow the pump had tilted and the water had run down the back of it… we put a towel in the back and it has been working perfectly fine for five hours;-)…
