It’s been a couple of weeks since our last blog. We know you’ve missed us… and we’re sorry. Here’s what was keeping us from you.
Hurricane Irene! She hit us hard here in Westchester and Putnam Counties. We did a record number of sump pump replacements as well as flooded basement pump-outs.
Power outages for numerous days resulted in multiple emergency generators to provide temporary power for all of our municipal districts. We basically worked around the clock maintaining water service for all of our customers in the area.
Residual power surges and brown-outs kept us busy responding to many of our residential customers whose submersible pumps and controls were damaged.
We replaced a few hot water heaters damaged by severe flooding. One customer had 4 feet of water in their utility room for us to pump out before we could replace their entire hot water heater complete with pipe, valves and wiring.
We’re hoping for a dry autumn, to bring life back to normal for our Techs and our valued customers.
