Did you take the cover off your pool this weekend? Those of us that don’t have pools envy you, but the one thing we don’t envy is all the hard work that goes into maintaining your pool throughout the summer. Before you dive-in to pool maintenance (pun-intended), remember to make sure your insurance company is aware you have a pool and you have the coverage you need on your Home Insurance policy. If you recently put in a pool, definitely give your insurance company a call to update your home insurance. Your company may not insure your home with a pool or they may have certain restrictions. It’s important to be aware of those rules and restrictions in the event that an accident occurs.

Now that we have shared some helpful insurance reminders, we thought it would be helpful to give you some reminders on the pool maintenance tips you should be implementing throughout the summer.

  • Check pool chemistry often, making sure you don’t allow the pH level to get above 8.0.
  • Clean the skimmer in the pool pump frequently.
  • Add chemicals after the sun has set.
  • Make sure you run your pumps enough.
  • Brush down the walls and tile to help prevent algae
    build-up.

Good luck and enjoy your swimming pool this summer! If you’re still worried about your New Jersey Homeowners insurance coverage for your pool, it might be a good idea to ask your agent about the extra liability an Umbrella Insurance policy can give you. Then you could really float around and relax, knowing you have plenty of coverage if anything should happen.

Superbowl Party Must-Haves

Are you having a Superbowl Party Sunday? If you aren’t a 49ers or Ravens fan you may not be as excited about watching the Superbowl, but there’s still fun to be had.

Homeowners Insurance New Jersey

Are you having a Superbowl Party Sunday? If you aren’t a 49ers or Ravens fan you may not be as excited about watching the Superbowl, but there’s still fun to be had. If you’re anything like me, one of your favorite parts about watching football is the food. Why not use it as occasion to get together and enjoy some food (and drinks) with your friends, even if your team didn’t make the cut. Besides, there’s still sure to be some commercials to get you laughing and if anyone can bring a fun halftime show performance it’s Beyonce!

Now that I have convinced you it’s a good idea to have your friends come over to watch the game, I’ll also help you out with some party tips. First, as your insurance agency, I should remind you that if your guests will be drinking, make sure they aren’t driving! Did you know that if they leave your house drunk and get in an accident you can be liable? Make sure you have enough liability coverage on your New Jersey Home Insurance policy. Concerned about your liability coverage on your home and auto insurance not being enough? Call our agents and ask about a New Jersey Umbrella Insurance policy. You won’t believe how affordable extra liability coverage is!

Once you have the coverage you need for your Superbowl Bash, here are some must-haves for your party:

  • Great, football-loving friends make the party that much more fun. Even if your team isn’t in the big game, this can really up the excitement.
  • Great, easy to eat food is also a must. Make sure everything you prepare can be eaten quickly for those in between moments in the game. A couple of healthy dishes are great for some options, but remember the must-haves like classic dips and wings!
  • Make sure you have plenty of seats. Last weekend, my family brought an extra couch into our living room just so everyone would have a comfortable spot. The living room didn’t look its best, but everyone was happy!
  • A great TV goes without say, right? A pretty large, HD TV is a must for you and your guests to enjoy all the Superbowl game will have to offer. Just a heads up, surround sound doesn’t hurt.
