The Importance of Adding Water Backup Coverage to Your Insurance Policy

Water Backup as Snow Melts

  Water Backup and Flooded Basements Can Occur From Melting Snow Did you know- Melting snow is the equivalent to heavy rain? Just like rain, melting snow is precipitation. If you have 4-5 inches of heavy, wet snow, that is the equivalent to about one inch of rain. How much snow do you have in your yard? Is your foundation and basement at risk  for a water backup as the temperatures warm over the next several days? One inch of melting snow can produce 2,700 gallons of water per acre. Even a minor snowmelt could potentially leave thousands of gallons of water around your home or businesses foundation. Because the ground was already saturated with the melting snow of a couple weeks ago, there is a rise in the height of the water table and an increase in the amount of hydrostatic (water) pressure against the foundation. The foundation of your home is warm and so the soil thaws and allows the flow of water into the soil around your foundation. Inevitably, some of that water is going to find its way down your foundation walls and ends up in your basement. This can lead to overworked sump-pumps, flooded basements and water back-up issues in your home.
