Harrison, OH - When the National Weather Service predicted an "active to extremely active" hurricane season, they were right on target, as Hurricane Earl will move up the Atlantic Coast this holiday weekend and others are expected to form in the weeks ahead. As the distress calls start coming in, Blue Angel Pumps, the experts in sump pump technology, has important tips to help you keep your customers ahead of the storm and their basements safe and dry.
o Blue Angel Pumps says that preparedness is extremely important for customers to protect valuables and family heirlooms even if they are not in a flood zone. Any advisories you can communicate to regular or potential customers will keep you and your services top of mind.
o When servicing customers pre- and post-storm, look for quality sump pumps with enough power to handle large volumes of water.
o To remove standing water after a storm, look for utility and transfer pumps that do the job quickly and efficiently.
o In addition to the main pump, recommend a battery back up pump, since power is often lost during a storm.
o Encourage homeowners to test their sump pump every few months by pouring water in to make sure it turns on and is working properly.
o If a customer's sump pump is more than ten years old, recommend that they replace it with the latest technology from Blue Angel Pumps.
o New sump pump systems provide multiple layers of protection in addition to back up systems, like a new wireless alarm that detect water levels and alerts the homeowner if a pump fails.
o Blue Angel Pumps' other new safeguards include new iSwitch technology, a highly reliable switch that senses water levels with a microprocessor. With no moving parts, it resists corrosion and lasts five times longer than traditional switches.
o With your expertise and recommendations for multi layers of protection, customers will rely on you to help them weather the coming storm season.
