We have a California basement (concrete floors, furnace, water heater, storage), not the large, liveable space that homes in other regions have. We mainly store stuff in the area and need some advice from more experienced people. Our basement has flooded several times (just an inch or so) and we are looking for sturdy plastic pallets to raise the stuff a few inches above the floor. We'd like to put them under some free-standing cabinets (think Home Depot), so they need to be fairly strong. While at Petco, a pet supply store, I saw just what I wanted under tall stacks of bagged dog food. They were measured about 2' x 3' and were about 3" high. They were embossed "Poly Pal Jr." I googled the name, but got no results. The salespeople (Saturday night at 8pm) did not know anything about them.
Can anyone help me track down such a product or give me other ideas on how to deal with the occasional flooding? Earthquakes, yeah, we know how to deal; flooding, not so much.
Thanks in advance!
