Water Damage - A Devastation Indeed!

Posted by Bonnie Bornstein Fertel on Sun, Sep 16, 2018 @ 09:12 AM

When is the last time you checked your sump pump?

#HurricaneFlorence is stalled through the Carolinas and has, to date, dumped more than 40" of water. Imagine the devastation and those homeowners that have yet to return to their residences only to find disaster, destruction and despair.

While New Jersey has not been hit by a storm of this magnitude, weather changes are obvious. Out of sight, out of mind...an expression we use often. This week it has become popular vernacular. 

Those of us with sump pumps often don't pay any mind to that appliance sitting in a hole in the floor of your home. That sump pump that is sitting quietly in the corner of our basement only becomes a concern when it's raining or we're experiencing melting of tremendous amounts of snow.

Be proactive about maintaining your sump pump.


Sump pumps while more expensive than light bulbs, operate on the same concept, along with many other small and large appliances. The deterioration or demise of the item is not necessarilly iimpacted by the actual historical age of the item, it's the wear and tear on the item as it goes 'on' and 'off' repeatedly.

Sump Pump & BackUp Sump Pumps: Maintenance In Just 5 Minutes

Posted by Bonnie Bornstein Fertel on Thu, Feb 14, 2013 @ 07:36 AM

Sump pumps are not just for removing excess water during rainy periods. Here's why maintenance is important...

In New Jersey and all along the northeast, we're getting our fair share of snow this winter. After several snow storms, the volume of snow builds up. At some point, perhaps not the next day, the temperature will begin to warm up, and the snow will begin to melt. Melting snow invariably increases the water table as the melted snow seeps into the ground, and therefore the possibility of ground water finding its way into your basement increases.  This becomes your ultimate concern.
