Sump pumps are selling out quickly. This years record breaking Boston snow fall accumulated and has melted. The water table is full! Next, we will have spring rain. As the saying goes, April showers brings out May flowers. Another favorite, promising unfavorable weather, “In like a lion. Out like a lamb”.

From what supplies can be found on the shelves at the big box stores, it seems Bostonians have learned from recent years past, to be sure their sump pumps are in working order.

Not having a functional sump pump can be more than just having a wet basement. For many people, it may be the difference between having home owner’s insurance cover damages or you may have to bare the cost on your own.

In April of 2010, many homes in the area of Warwick, Rhode Island and surrounding cities came to understand a loop hole many insurance companies had, regarding insurance coverage. Now, Warwick Mall was under water. There is no way a sump pump would of done anything for them. If your home was in the vicinity of Warwick Mall, there is nothing a sump pump would of physically done for your home. However, many home owners who had sump pumps were able to receive benefits from their insurance policies. While homes not having sump pumps did not have the advantage of having home owner insurance cover damage.
