What is that Awful Smell?

That Awful SmellThe sense of smell is a primitive sense that is link to our instinctual behavior.  Odors are like warning signs and sirens in the real world.  Foul and horrible smells warn us that something bad is nearby, and your health may be at risk.  Mold, mildew, sewage, rot, and festering garbage are disgusting smells.

Basement Flood Problem

Basement flood alarmIf you have a basement, you probably have a footer sump and sump pump to keep your basement from flooding.  Having been through a couple of minor basement floods, I know that 99% of the time flooding happens because of pump failure.  So, I installed a very simple flood warning system to alert us to water in the basement before things got bad.
