“Dear PoPville,

We have a condo in Shaw (townhouse conversion and we have the basement and first floor). During the past two big storms, we have had clear water come through the floors in one of the basement rooms. We have tile floors, not wood, and have mopped up the water quickly and ran a dehumidifier. I know the solution is likely $$ but two questions: 1) any recommendations for a contractor or plumber who we can trust to give an estimate and do a good job and 2) should we be investing in a sump pump?”
