Two-car garage. Cars pull in with snow, fenderbergs, wet stuff.
Snow melts, floor covers in water. No floor drain, and the concrete has random lowspots, so water pools in several spots, but doesn't run to the door.
Last year, I did a lot of squeegeeing. This year, I glued pressure-treated 1x2's to the floor (creating a containment wall), and sealed the wood with good sealant.
The water now stays within the borders I created, but I have to shop-vac GALLONS of water every day, along with still squeegeeeing towards door.
Those of you who park in a garage, what have you done to deal with this?
I was thinking of cutting grooves in the concrete, that lead to the door. I don't know enough about construction to know whether that would turn into a very bad idea (it certainly would lead to ice out in the driveway).
(We're talking about a LOT of water here. One mudflap-iceberg can contain almost a gallon of water)

Mine evaporates even when it is in the negatives. It's an attached garage... Does that tell you inefficient my home is insulated? It's only 12 years old too.

The pump is a sump pump....Definitely not what you want to get into just to get a few gallons of water outta your garage.
Personally, I've never heard of anybody doing anything much about the water. They just let it dry on it's own. I agree with the guy above. I'd just park outside. You car will be better for it by not pulling it in as far as rust prevention goes.
