KUSA - As would be expected, many hardware/home improvement stores are being overrun by people looking for sump pumps, water vacs, dehumidifiers, sand and any and all products that will help them to keep water out of their homes.

In Boulder, McGuckin Hardware is not only doing all they can to accommodate customer requests but are helping customers find creative solutions to protect their homes, if specific products aren't immediately available.
The McGuckin employees are calling these "MacGyver Moments," and some of their more creative approaches so far have included:
- Using roach killer products with boric acid to kill and prevent mold.
- Using gardening and plumbing supplies to fashion fittings for sump pumps.
- Substituting top soil or mushroom compost for sand bags.
- Making sump pump basins from five-gallon buckets.
