electrical extension cord

Can an electrical extension cord be used outdoors during rain
storm to pump water from backyard. Backyard becomes flooded and water flows into basement. Who can I
call for an evalution on how to fix this problem. Should I call a home inspector or a basement specalist or a landscaper for a diagnosis.
Thank you

Re: electrical extension cord

Generally speaking yes if it is a grounded cord and you keep the plugs from being submerged.

I would suggest you check the grading first. It should be sloped away from the house and low spots filled.
