Then there was the sump pump. I am not quite sure how it would even be possible, but it appears there was a bag of clumping kitty litter dumped in the hole where the sump pump is located. It stunk. Bad.
But after vacuuming out the hole and cycling water through the sump pump again, it is at least clear of the kitty litter mess.
Makes me stand firm on my stance that the previous owners realized there was some maintenance needed on the house and since they didn't clean or do any maintenance, it was time to sell the house.
So grateful this morning I have a husband who can fix almost anything and WILL DO IT.
