Every so often my girlfriend and I will find 2 or more water puddles. We live in the basement, basically a mother in law apartment. It was concrete and back in the 70s they laid sheet vinyl down.
A few months after moving in I woke up one morning walked towards the kitchen and stepped in water! I immediately looked up to see if the ceiling was leaking. It was bone dry. Being a floor guy I soaked up the water and examined the sheet vinyl thinking the water came up from the concrete. But how did it penetrate through the sheet vinyl? Also the sheet vinyl was still securely glued to the concrete. Usually if water gets under the vinyl it will cause the glue to no longer be adhered to the concrete. I began looking around and found a 2nd puddle 10 feet away. No pipes, no walls, no leak from the walls, ceilings, vinyl in tact.
I installed new vinyl plank flooring down here over the existing sheet vinyl. The stuff is about 1/4 inch thick. And a few days ago after nothing for 10 months bam stepped in water again! Now how is water coming from underneath waterproof vinyl planks? I began looking and noticed a couple more puddles. I have yet to figure out what is causing these.
If it is a spirit, it hasn't bothered us, except the one night a ceramic statue flew off the bookshelf and shattered while I was lying on the couch and my girl was in the bathroom. I immediately froze and yelled for her to come in the room as I am not a fan of paranormal anything! Lol.
Thoughts anyone? I've read about poltergeist doing this, but nothing real bad has happened. There must be a logical explanation.
