Had the same thing happen yesterday while filling up some jugs. Usually, I hear my alarm letting me know it's time to turn it off but after a few cold ones and jams cranked up bumping in the background, yeah, you tend to forget...

I’ve done that more than a few times even setting an alarm on my phone. (At my place and my lady’s place). Fortunately both setups have the barrels on the back porch. Just ends up watering the lawn.

It only took flooding the laundry room twice for me to install float valves and an auto shut off on my RODI.

That's why mine is in the garage.............it just goes down hill and out the door :laugh: I did put a float switch in my ATO container but do fill buckets every so often and that's when I get in trouble.......

Wasn't in the new house a week before I had a flood coming out the front of the garage.  Kind of a reefer tradition if you ask me.

I put 5" of water in my basement once. Which part you ask? The ENTIRE basement.

That is impressive. Hopefully not RODI or even worse salt - that would be expensive in more ways than one.

These are very impressive.  Our desire to chase this hobby can be quantifiably measured by the actual damage we do to our homes.  We should have an award annually for most impressive flood.
