After the second day with no clearing ahead, I checked the sump pumps in several of my rentals. The first had flooded when we bought it, so we dug up the floor (mostly clay) then put gravel, a vapor barrier, a 4″ piping network pitched to a low point sump receiver, a 6″ concrete slab and a sump pump. Worked great until two days ago when the back yard flooded. Partly because of our pump, the next door neighbor and of course the storm. Note to self – replumb the sump to the street in front so the town storm drains handle our sump when the groundwater rises.
You folks have any “horror stories” from that Nor’easter? Mike
