Just made my final visit to Sioux Falls, returned a couple of Weeks ago and everything is still great in the area (Yes it snow the entire Week we were there, LoL). My question is what do the locals use to line their garage floors to catch the water, snow and everything else so you can just mop it up. When I lived in Seattle I just used a cheap clear plastic tarp on the floor I brought from one of the department stores (I don't remember which one), anyone know of anything similar and where to buy it in the Sioux Falls area? I haven't had to buy anything like this the last 10 years so any suggestions would be helpful on what to buy I would like to only spend 50-100 dollars if possible.

We are looking forward to the move next Month.

Thanks;

I don't use anything in my garage, I think there is garage floor coating that you apply like paint you can buy most places, I think I saw it at WalMart for like 50-60 dollars....

We generally use the first rule of plumbing. It flows down hill. The second rule is payday is friday. Anyway most garages floors are sloped to the water and stuff run out. Then on a nice day you sweep it out. The thing with coatings is it doesn't give as smooth a surface making cleaning the floor harder to clean.

You guys crack me up. Too bad the entire city of Sioux Falls isn't on a slope so I won't have to worried about the flooding or the sewer line issues. See you in a few Weeks.

Well the foolproof design is let gravity work. Most sewer systems work on that principal. Sometimes the contents need to be pushed up hill and that is where lift stations come into play. In the past SF has has some major malfunctions on the system, but it was in a focus area not a wide spread problem.
