Well I got my transfer done the other day the 75 to my 47, Ill post pics later for some opinions. I had an accident today, I screwed up and didn't clamp down the tubing on my sump pump. I came home and my sump had half flooded my dinning room! :cuss: My own fault something I over looked on the transfer. I'm wondering what I can clamp this hose down with. I have zip-ties and one of those crazy ratching clamps(don't know how good those are). I have a mag5 in my sump. It has a screw in barb on it. Thats the details of it. Oh yeah whats the best method of getting this water cleaned up?

Thanks,
Aaron

You can get nylon hose clamps from NAPA. I use a shop vac or carpet shampooer to suck up the water. Shammy rags work on the left behind stuff in the carpet.

Seascapes has the nylon hose clamps. I think that's what most people use.

I used reg hose clamps since most of them are out of the water anyway... My lil fingers arent really strong enough for the hose clamps seascapes carries... I have put em on before and they have still come off! :( But thats me.. lol

As far as water clean up, towels towels and more towels... then a fan over the area to try to dry it up faster. If you really want to you can get on ur hands n knees with a hair dryer. lol ;) Or if you have a wet/dry shop vac!! That would work great too!

The best ay to keep your ho's secure is to keep your pimp hand strong, or so I've read. . .
