Basement Waterproofing - Surviving Sandy: How the TripleSafe Sump Pump System Kept Basements Dry During the Storm

In 2011, Hurricane Irene wreaked havoc along the East Coast. The Romanos and the Kesslers, two Long Island homeowners, had their basements destroyed by a flood for the first time.

To add insult to injury, Mrs. Kessler learned the hard way – as did many homeowners in the affected areas -- that the damages weren’t covered under their homeowner’s insurance policy. After dealing with the messy and costly cleanup, both families decided that they would take every precaution to avoid going through something like that ever again.

After shopping around, and looking at several solutions proposed by other waterproofing companies, they opted to have Basement Systems come and install a full WaterGuard interior drainage system and a TripleSafe Sump Pump System.

When they heard of Hurricane Sandy, which even before landfall was already being nicknamed “Frankenstorm” by meteorologists, they didn’t believe their basements could survive it.

In October of 2012, Hurricane Sandy hit the eastern shore, flooding streets and entire neighborhoods along the coast, and leaving millions without power for many days.

While all their neighbors were dealing with devastating basement floods, their basements, to their surprise, were kept dry and safe.

Even after the Romanos had to turn off their generators and lost power completely, the battery operated backup sump pump, which is part of the TripleSafe system, was working to keep their basement dry.

Once again, Basement System’s TripleSafe Sump Pump was put to the ultimate test, and passed!
