Not really, but I totally forgot about my leaky walls since we had a very mild winter last year.

Heres a bit of carnage.

It does. So far I have sucked up about 2 gallons of water, and I still have to get under the shelves.

Ive thought about it but I would rather not let it retain water. Im thinking ill dig a ditch close to the foundation this summer.

Mine does that too, just because the way the snow falls and the water runs.

If it really becomes an issue, install a sump pump.

I keep every thing in the garage up on pallets, since I get water in the north side.

Dog's hate it, I hate it, but not worth the trouble to fix.

Inside or outside?

A lot of the problem too is that whoever poured the foundation didnt make it level.

Sump pumps are usually installed under the floor at a low spot,

First thing to determine is "Where is the water comin from?"

Find the hole, and use the expanding foam stuff on it, I used it to plug a hole in my shed wall from when a forklift hit it....

Well, my floor isnt even, and the water comes under the wall all along that side. Theres no hole, it just seeps between the boards and foundation, then gathers at the wall.

Rofl, love the title Very Happy

My parents garage use to flood every time is rained, there is a drain right at the bottom on the hill where the water should run. There never used to the gully thing between the tarmac and garage foundation so the water would just run down the driveway and build up against the door and would just pour right over it.
One time I was hosting a mini lan party and the water decided to attack. Luckily we got the 3 computers, the server and all the cables before the watch got to them. The entire garage floor was under about 1.5 inch of water. I took 2 hours to get most of it out and like 6 weeks to fully dry out.

Since my dad and I put the gully thing in, its never flooded and its unlikely to ever flood again.

Yea like I said this late spring, ill probably dig out along the edge of the foundation and buy 6 bags of Quickrete and make a concrete gutter. Flooding every year is ridiculous and I would rather not have water all over my equipment.
