Ida and flooded equipment

Kybeans403 Member Posts: 53
This is/has been the deal around lower Westchester/lower Fairfield County CT since the storm.....not sure if we can post video.....but this custy said her basement had 7 feet of water.  Out of curiosity I opened the old valve and I got 10+ gallons out. You can see some water in the bucket already....ConEd came out, locked meter and said they most likely have to replace line from the street into house.....

I'm wondering how many people/homeowners just re-lit their pilots etc....and rolled with it. And of those,  will we see problems down the line with equipment that was not serviced/repaired/replaced with flood???

    That entire boiler must be replaced. FEMA and insurance companies require this.
