Florida has often been hailed as the “Lightening Capital of the World”, but, did you know that it is the Water Extraction Capital of the World? Why?? Well, let me count the ways:
Historically, Florida has been the gateway for hurricanes, storms and tornados. Geographically, I guess Florida can’t help itself! We are a peninsula surrounded by open waters from the east, west and south. In addition, we have 8 months of the year where we are basically “sentenced” to have the “Big One” hit us.
Another fact that makes Florida a target for flooding is that anatomically speaking, it is the FLATTEST state in the nation and the engineers, surveyors who were in charge of designing our infrastructure, forgot to take this “minor” detail into account. Check out our sewer system for instance…..oh, wait….I forgot…they are pretty much non-existent. Well, that answers that! No wonder 80% of Florida is designated as a flood zone by insurance companies.
From a construction point of view, homes in Florida are prone to water damage since we tend to use our air conditioners 180% of the time, 12 months of the year. This phenomena has lead to another dreaded word in a Floridian’s vocabulary….CONDENSATION. In layman’s terms, this means that air conditioners are overworked and they basically start to sweat…..actually depending on the unit, it can start sweating profusely leading to a puddle of water, then a bigger puddle and eventually a deluge.
