Re: solutions to basement flooding

Ok. So I used to have flooding problem. As in 2 feet of water at least twice a year. Bad stuff. Mostly due to rainwater and sewer backup. I tried several different solutions and nothing. Then I found Rolando of Clear Flow Plumbing. He did some other work for me and I had him look into the flooding problem. It's like it became a mission for him...he had to figure out how to stop it. He did all this research on sump pumps...brands, horse power, configuration...it just felt like I had somebody on my side trying to actually figure out this thing. So he comes up with this configuration, using commercial grade sump pumps...4 in total. When it rains, it looks like geyser coming out the front of my house...but my basement is dry. Knock wood. All I can say is it works. And you can read the other reviews on him on kannect and other sites...the guy is gold. Take it for what its worth. It cost around $4500? Maybe a little more, I forget. But well worth the cost of not getting an ulcer everytime it rains.

Hey Johnnytit,

Sorry it took so long to get back to you.

The setup is a 1/2 horsepower pump with a 1 1/2 inch pipe, leading to a larger drainage pipe under my driveway.

The basic problem was that we had water coming through where our basement wall and floor met whenever we had a real deluge -- maybe five times a year -- and we wanted to collect and pump that water away. When the contractor put in a french drain, I think we ended up tapping into the groundwater flowing beneath our house. And up here on the island, there's not a lot of space between basements and the bedrock.

A friend of mine who has a housing inspection business says he often sees basements where installing a french drain made the situation worse. You end up pumping you and your neighbors groundwater out through your basement .

Cool... but have you checked out the copyright issues regarding the I "heart" NJ, JC, etc.?
This is an article from Business week, 7/18/05 (I'll send the link if you want.):

"BRAND BATTLES
New York Loves Its Trademark

New York officials show no mercy in their bid to protect the "I ♥ New York" logo. The trademark, supplied free of charge by graphic designer Milton Glaser in 1976, helps beckon 140 million tourists to the Empire State each year. As others tried to tap the design over the years, state legal eagles have filed close to 3,000 trademark objections.

Apparel company 4 KAMM International is incensed at New York's pending effort to halt the use of "I ♥" SF, Las Vegas, and Paris on everything from bumper stickers to calendars. Last year, New York shut down "I ♥ Yoga" T-shirts produced by a Florida Bikram yoga outfit. And in October, the U.S. Trademark & Patent Office is expected to hear a case filed by Michael Stewart, a clothing designer in Raleigh, N.C., challenging New York's opposition to "I ♥ NC."

Lawyers say Stewart's case is stronger than most because of coloring differences and a change in the heart's look. New York says this is about protecting a logo, not upping licensing fees, which totaled $900,000 in the past five years. "We aren't in the business of taking apologies," says Jonathan Faber, a lawyer at Collins, McDonald & Gann, which represents the state.

haha, my way or the pulaski skyway is hilarious. i might just order myself one. that reminds me of a time during the glenn cunningham administration, when i got my hands on a t-shirt and a tiny metal pin, both paid for by the city, declaring jc's new slogan: "new jersey's shining star". both the t-shirt and pin have an outline of the state, with a star where jc is supposed to be, except it's clearly perched in the south amboy area. classic.

Price of Pizza is mediocre at best. Stadium is decent, but nothing to drive out of your way for.

And that Liquor store on 440 is ok for beer, but far from a great wine selection (although I'm looking for neither Australian wines with animals on the label nor kosher wines).

I personally like the pizza at Bertucci's, there is one located in Newport area (will you consider that part of Jersey City?). Bertucci's is very popular and well known in certain cities in Massachusetts, but their presence in the NY/NJ area is quite limited (too bad...).

I say good riddance to Troy, but we need to put pressure on the mayor to find a qualified replacement for him via a thorough and transparent nationwide search process. The job of Police Chief is too important to be handed out to do-nothing, incompetent and possibly corrupt machine cogs like Comey or Dalton (previous post here).

I usually order from Carmines. I found it to be the best pizza in JC. That is not to say that i think its the best pizza ever. Father & Son in Guttenberg is my personal favorite. Unfortunately, they do not deliver to JC.

By far the best pizza in J.C. is Prince of Pizza on Bergen Ave near Montgomery. I have tried everything downtown and it far outweighs all of them.

Stadium Pizza on Route 440- I’ve begged them to deliver downtown and paid $ 2-3 extra. Is true NYC style pizza, cheesy, gooey, crispy crust done just right, excellent! Across from Home Depot next to Path mark

Also-

Pizza Masters on Central is also very good

I'd like to know how the Journal figures JC has the most violent crime when Newark, with a very slightly larger population had nearly 3 times the murders? How'd they get a job writing when they can't read? From what I read in the AP piece, JC had a larger "increase" in the crime rate than Newark.

If Newark was the size of NYC, they would have had over 3000 murders. Think about that before investing in Newark real estate.
