After having heavy rains for two days, my in ground pool only lacked about a half an inch from coming over the top, I don't think it would have flooded my house but I didn't want to take that chance, so for $350.00 I had an overflow drain installed that runs out to the ally. This also eliminated me hooking up my garden hose to the pump and manually removing water.

Additional answer would be that your pool deck should have deck drains build in. That in combination to the overflow should be adequate in some or most areas if they are kept clean and are cleared regularly. Places with high rainfall may want to have a portable pump to remove excess water. Sometimes a sand filter can to that task.

No, using the verb 'flood', the auxiliary verb 'has' calls for the past tense of the main verb: Your house has flooded. Using the word 'flood' as a noun, calls for an article preceding the noun: Your house has a flood. Your house has the flood.

It all depends on how bad the flood is. The whole house can be destroyed if the flood is bad enough.

After her brother died, the Martha's Vineyard estate was Caroline's alone. She made a number of changes to the property, increasing the size of the house and adding an inground swimming pool. The expansion of the house did involve some demolition of the parts of the original house.
