Once upon a time I had some servers colocated in the basement of a  
friend with a T1. It had some occasional water issues, but nothing  
like 6", and he'd put in a pump. The servers seemed OK there for a  
while, but then they developed stability issues, which I traced back  
to some kind of slight corrosion on either the DIMM sockets or the  

This happened to several machines, and did not happen to other,  
similar machines that were not in the basement. The machines weren't  
on the floor and there is no indication they got wet, so I assume the  
problem was high humidity. Caution is advised.
