We experience basement flooding with heavy rains that is a combination of ground water coming in through the walls and floor cracks but even more by horrific sewer backup. We have decided to bite the financial bullet and install a backflow valve in the main sewer line where it enters the house. The basement perimeter should be dug out and a drain installed to the sump pump but this is a huge undertaking. Would it work, at least temporarily, to glue some boards to the floor to direct the water flow to the sump pump....and what kind of adhesive would work in these wet conditions....wood to concrete. The whole project is going to be DIY. HELP!!!
