Nor'easter Coming? Check Your Sump Pumps!

The weather forecast is tracking a Nor'easter; is your basement ready for it?

Cliffwood, NJ - January 20, 2017

When they're predicting, a Nor'easter headed to New Jersey, this is a great time to check your sump pumps. Most of the news reports call for the storm to come up the coast Sunday into Monday with heavy rain, strong winds, and the potential for coastal flooding. When it rains steadily for several hours’ basements can flood.

The experts at Quality 1st Basement Systems suggest making sure everything is in good working order when a storm of this size is coming up the coast. When prepping for major storms, they suggest checking your sump pumps.

“Make sure they’re plugged into a dedicated outlet to insure the circuit won’t trip,” suggests Dan McNally, a waterproofing specialist. “Check the float switch to make sure its operational. Also, if you don’t have a battery backup, get one. All storms have the potential of killing the power. No electricity, no pump. All of this can lead to a flooded basement and hours of clean up.”

Stay safe, stay dry and be prepared.
