damage to brick home?
 
We had a recent break in some pool equipment. Needless to say we woke up and there were large puddles up against the side of our house. It was about ankle deep and had been up against the house for approximately 2 hours. Could this have caused damage to the foundation? We live in Florida so we DO NOT have a basement. It is a brick house and there were no signs of water damage in the house.
Thanks!

I doubt there would be any dammage unless the water moved a lot of dirt around and washed out support. You do want to check for water in the crawl space, you would need to dry that asap.

It did not wash any dirt away and we do not have a crawl space so it sounds like we should be good! Thank you very much!!

So if it didn't come up to the top of the foundation it should be find.
