What Causes Moisture in Your Basement?
It’s easy to spot water leaking through a crack in your basement, but most homeowners don’t know that there is a potential for water issues without heavy rains or obvious signs of standing water. At Healthy Way, we try to educate our clients on the real causes of water in your basement. Here are two of the most common reasons why you might need basement waterproofing in Ocean:
The “Clay Bowl” Effect
It might not be evident on the surface, but many basements are built in a below-grade dip, which is surrounded by backfill. Because backfill is made up of soil that was removed during foundation digging, it creates an empty shape or “bowl” effect. Once the foundation is finished, this loose soil is placed back around the foundation. Unfortunately, soil of this consistency is more absorbent and porous than the undisturbed soil around it, which is hard-packed and less porous. When rain or thunderstorms occurs, the soil closest to your home becomes saturated, putting pressure on your basement walls.
This kind of pressure affects homeowners with property built below the water table or on a hillside where water runs down a hill. When the soil around your foundation becomes saturated, it will expand and put intense pressure on the walls of your foundation and basement. This pressure can create cracks, giving water an easy route into your basement.
How Healthy Way Solves Your Basement Waterproofing Needs
Having a wet basement not only puts your health at risk, it lowers the value of your home and makes it more difficult to sell. The good news? We offer a number of waterproofing services and products to solve your problems fast. A few of our solutions include:
- Sump pumps
- Perimeter drainage systems
- Doorway drainage systems
- High-strength washer hoses

When you use Healthy Way for basement waterproofing in New Jersey, you can rest easy knowing that all our systems come with a written, lifetime warranty. This warranty is transferrable, meaning you can re-establish your home’s value and give future owners confidence knowing that their new home is protected.
The Healthy Way Basement Waterproofing Process
Because every home is different, your basement waterproofing solution could be vastly different than that of your next-door neighbor. Many factors play a part when it comes to keeping your basement dry and safe for living. As a general rule, we approach each issue with a “prevention over repair” mindset. By taking this stance, we give our clients a more cost-effective, long-term resolution. We’re not in the business of putting a “Band-Aid” on your water problem – we want to fix your issue completely, so you don’t have to worry about recurring problems. Our effective basement waterproofing systems include a mix of the following strategies:
Interior waterproofing methods usually start with our team ensuring that any holes or cracks in your basement floors, walls, and windows are sealed properly. Sealing cracks in your basement is an important first step since this is usually the first place where water can enter your home. Our sealants keep your basement dry and help prevent more moisture from finding its way into your home. Interior waterproofing strategies like these also help lower humidity levels in your basement. While sealants and other interior waterproofing strategies help correct initial issues, they don’t usually solve the underlying problem causing leaks in your basement. Those issues are most often found outside your home.
Once our team is finished with your interior waterproofing, we will move to the exterior of your home. Waterproofing the outside of your home is often a more complex, nuanced goal. Because of the difficult nature of exterior waterproofing, we recommend you consult with our team of professionals before tackling the job on your own. Generally speaking, our team beings the outdoor waterproofing process by excavating the soil around your home’s foundation. Once we remove the soil surrounding your foundation, our experts will apply a polymer-based sealant to any cracks we discover. This sealant is a long-term solution and should remain intact for the life of your home. While the Healthy Way team solves your outdoor moisture problems, we will also check your downspouts, to make sure they aren’t clogged. An inefficient gutter system does a poor job of directing water away from your home’s foundation, which can cause more moisture to seep into your basement over time.
One of the most common reasons that people need basement waterproofing in cityname is because they have a poor drainage system. A proper drainage system is paramount in keeping your basement dry and your family safe. These systems are meant to direct water away from your home and come in many forms, from French Drains to simple systems like ground soil. If you’re thinking of installing a complex drainage system, save yourself some time and check the soil around your foundation first to make sure it isn’t retaining moisture. If a more complex system like a sump pump is required, it’s best to work with certified professionals like those at Healthy Way, to make sure your drainage system is installed correctly.
WHICH WATERPROOFING SOLUTION IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Because every home is different, it’s hard to say what kind of waterproofing solution is right for your situation. Most homeowners require a combination of interior and exterior waterproofing. There are dozens of factors that come into play when it comes to waterproofing your home, so the answer to your problem may be different than your neighbor’s. The good news is that Healthy Way is fully equipped to handle whatever moisture issue you’re having. We will work tirelessly to make certain your basement is dry, mold-free, and safe to enjoy. That way, you can get back to living life rather than worrying about mold growth or foundation damage.Contact Us

Over 2,200 NJ Transit bus trips were canceled in just two months. Why?

Before Tanisah Garner\'s mother passed in 2018, she would travel by bus from Pleasantville to Newark to babysit Garner\'s daughters. Eventually, her mother began opting to stay overnight in Newark because she couldn\'t count on NJ Transit buses to be ready to take her back home.
"My mother would have a hard time coming back and forth to Pleasantville … especially at nighttime," Garner said. "So that\'s the reason why she chose to travel less."
Three years later, public bus reliability has not improved but has been exacerbated by the pandemic. The number of bus drivers and mechanics employed at NJ Transit has decreased, which has led to thousands of canceled bus trips, particularly in southern New Jersey.
Canceling buses has a significant impact on those who depend on them. It could mean being late for work and losing wages. It could increase stress and worry. And it could cause commuters to lose confidence in the transportation system.
To track disruptions for bus commuters, the Asbury Park Press downloaded and analyzed 3,966 tweets from @NJTRANSIT_SBUS, which sends alerts about buses from South Jersey, and @NJTRANSIT_NBUS, which sends alerts about buses from North Jersey.
From May 1 through June 30 this year, the notices showed a near daily pattern of bus delays and cancellations caused by a lack of drivers and mechanics.
NJ Transit operates an estimated 16,000 daily bus trips across New Jersey, according to NJ Transit spokeswoman Emma Wright. Ninety-seven percent of buses scheduled arrive on time.
But the analysis found 2,216 bus trips of an estimated 976,000 scheduled to operate May through June did not run. Of the buses that did not operate, 246 trips were from North Jersey lines and 1,970 were from South Jersey lines. The majority of the South Jersey bus trips that did not operate clustered around Philadelphia and Trenton.
Bus rides vary widely in ridership by region and time. When observing buses, some trips ran empty while others filled up quickly.
Port Authority Bus Terminal:It was once a marvel. Will the next one meet commuters\' needs?
Of the bus trips that were canceled, 2,143 did not operate because of a bus driver shortage according to data from analyzed tweets. A total of 208 of those trips were from North Jersey lines, and 1,935 of those trips were from South Jersey lines.
"This is very stressful for our transit-dependent riders because they need to show up to work at a very specific time. They need to be reliable employees," said Janna Chernetz, deputy director of Tri-State Transportation Campaign, a mass transit advocacy group. "And if the only transportation system they have is NJ Transit, and that is not reliable, that directly effects their ability to retain a job, an income, and that is extremely important."
NJ Transit defines North and South Jersey lines by their origin and region they serve.
North Jersey lines include those originating from the 12 garages in North Jersey (Fairview, Greenville Ironbound, Meadowlands, Market Street, Oradell, Wayne, Hilton, Orange, Howell, Big Tree and Morris-Metro), contracted services in Bergen, Passaic and Hudson and bus lines 890, 891 and 986.
South Jersey lines include buses originating from South Jersey garages (Egg Harbor, Washington Township., Hamilton and Newton Avenue), contracted services (the 800 series buses) and bus line 468. Monmouth and Ocean counties are considered South Jersey.
Wright, the NJ Transit spokeswoman, said in an email that "Competition in recruiting for qualified candidates who possess CDL licenses is high nationally due to a spate of CDL openings in the transportation industry as a whole."
A commercial driver\'s license or a CDL is required for anyone who wants to operate a truck or bus.
She wrote that NJ Transit, specifically its bus operations, has seen an increase in retirements and people leaving the job.
In June, there were 3,421 bus drivers, which is a decrease of 60 from June 2020. From 2019 to 2020, NJ Transit lost just three positions.
"In the last three months alone, this need for new bus operators has led to several initiatives including a $6,000 signing bonus, and on-site CDL testing to name a few," she said. The annual starting salary for bus drivers is $41,800 based on an hourly wage of $21.77.
The $6,000 signing bonus has been offered since 2018.
In addition to drivers, NJ Transit has been looking for mechanics and service workers to maintain its buses.
Of the May through June bus trips that did not run, 45 did not operate because of mechanical or vehicle-related issues, according to analyzed tweets. Twenty-two trips were from North Jersey and 23 trips were from South Jersey.
Besides canceled buses, 628 bus trips were delayed due to mechanical or vehicle-related issues. A total of 507 of those trips were from North Jersey lines and 121 of those trips were from South Jersey lines.
Wright wrote that while driver availability affects a fraction of the scheduled bus trips across New Jersey, "we take a very strategic approach as it relates to lines and areas occasionally affected by operator availability to minimize the impact on customers so that no one line or specific geographic area is inordinately affected."
Of the 253 bus lines that web themselves throughout New Jersey and its neighboring states, 23 lines run thorough Monmouth and Ocean counties.
In two months, 22 trips in those two counties were canceled due to lack of drivers and 32 were delayed because of mechanical or vehicle-related issues.
All 22 canceled trips were with buses that had stops in Lakewood. None of the 800 series buses that run along the Shore area in Monmouth County had any delays or cancellations, according to the Press\'s review of NJ Transit\'s Twitter feed.

BARNEGAT, NJ — A craft fair in Barnegat on Saturday kicks off fundraising for Jeff\'s Camp, a transitional housing facility that will one day serve homeless veterans in the local area.
Over 30 vendors will be coming from all over the state for the fair at 308 Route 72 (the property on the corner of County Road 532 and Route 72) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., where people can learn more about Jeff\'s Camp and donate to the facility\'s building fund.
In May, Barnegat resident Marty Weber signed a letter of intent to donate 36 acres of wooded property along Route 72 to be dedicated as Jeff\'s Camp, a transitional housing facility for veterans struggling with addiction and mental illness.
The vision for Jeff\'s Camp includes an 8,000-square-foot building, which would have a treatment facility and a thrift store run by Just Believe, a nonprofit that helps homeless people in Ocean County. The thrift store would employ the veterans living on the property.
"When you have other veterans with other veterans, they tend to talk about things that they won\'t talk about with me or even counselors," said Paul Hulse, director of Just Believe. "They understand each other and can help each other."
Hulse said any money raised will help pay for the engineers, architects and permits needed to start the project by October. They hope to break ground by summer of 2022.
People can make donations to Jeff\'s Camp at the Just Believe table at Saturday\'s craft fair or online.
"The community is responding to what we\'re doing, so it\'s really exciting. It\'s another avenue to fundraise and raise awareness, and just get people involved," Hulse said.
The next fundraiser for the project is a golf outing on Aug. 9 at Trump National Golf Course in Monmouth County, which features a dinner, silent auction and 50/50 raffle.

Atlantic City casinos pull in big bucks, set monthly gambling record

Atlantic City’s casinos set a new monthly record for gross gambling revenue in June, winning more than $345 million from gamblers as pandemic fears eased somewhat and gamblers returned with their wallets.
That figure was nearly four times as much as the nine casinos won last June, when they were closed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Starting next month, the year-to-year comparisons will become valid again as most casinos reopened on or near July 2, 2020.
When sports betting money won by three racetracks is added to the equation, the June total rises to nearly $393 million.
That easily surpassed the $278 the casinos and tracks won in June 2019, before the pandemic hit.
June is the traditional start of the summer season for the casinos, their busiest and most profitable time of year, and industry observers were eagerly awaiting the June results.
The numbers “did not disappoint, coming off a near record single month high in May of $337.2 million to set a new single month total gross gaming revenue record,” said Jane Bokunewicz, director of the Lloyd Levenson Institute at Stockton University. “Casino patrons don’t have to visit the casino in-person in order to gamble, the fact that they are visiting suggests they are getting more out of the experience than gambling alone.”
James Plousis, chairman of the New Jersey Casino Control Commission, noted that for the last three months, casino revenue growth has exceeded 20% compared to the same period in 2019.
“I’ve seen first-hand that visitation to Atlantic City is on the rise, tourists are happy to be coming back, and the summer season is off to a positive start,” he said.
“We are encouraged by this momentum, which speaks to the comfort of visitors returning to the Jersey Shore this summer to enjoy premiere gaming, hospitality and entertainment,” said Joe Lupo, president of Hard Rock Atlantic City.
“The elimination of COVID restrictions and the return to normalcy bode well for us,” added Terry Glebocki, CEO of the Ocean Casino Resort.
Borgata led the pack with $97.7 million in revenue, followed by Hard Rock at $41.6 million; Tropicana at $27.4 million; Ocean at $26.6 million; Harrah’s at $21.3 million; Caesars at $20.3 million; Resorts at $13.9 million; Golden Nugget at $12.2 million, and Bally’s at $11.6 million.
Among internet-only entities, Resorts Digital won $35.5 million, Golden Nugget Online won $27.6 million, and Caesars Interactive NJ won $9.3 million.
New Jersey gamblers made $766 million worth of sports bets in June. After paying winning bets and expenses, the casinos and tracks kept $71.2 million of that.
The Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford, just outside New York City, won $44.5 million; Monmouth Park in Oceanport near the Jersey Shore won $2.5 million, and Freehold Raceway, which has yet to ramp up its sports betting operation in any meaningful way, won $132,775.
Internet gambling revenue was up more than 26% in June from a year earlier, rising to $107 million.
So far this year, the casinos and tracks have won more than $2.1 billion, twice the amount they had won over the same period last year, which included the 3 1/2 months that the casinos were shut down.

ROBBINSVILLE — Tampa Bay Lightning player Ross Colton introduced the Stanley Cup to his hometown on Friday.
The rookie\'s single goal in Game 5 on July 7 won Tampa Bay the NHL championship with a 1-0 win over the Montreal Canadians. Following a NHL tradition started by the New Jersey Devils in 1995, Colton and every player on the winning team get to spend the day with the Cup.
Colton took the Cup to IceLand in neighboring Hamilton where he played youth hockey and was later a coach. He took it to Jo-Jo\'s Tavern & Restaurant also in Hamilton for lunch. He also stopped by his barber for a cut.
The Cup came back to Robbinsville for a meet and greet with Mayor Dave Fried and Councilman Ron Witt before nearly 400 people greeted him as he was presented a key to the township.
"He was very gracious and posed with fans for photos for over 90 minutes," township spokesman John Nalbone told New Jersey 101.5.
Colton is bringing the cup to the Jersey Shore on Friday night and the Hotel LBI.

8 sharks you may find off New Jersey\'s coast
Gallery Credit: Dino Flammia
A much smaller species known as the dogfish — spiny or smooth — is considered to be a full-time resident of the New Jersey shore. "One of the reasons they\'re called dogfish is that they travel in large packs like dogs," said Dean Fessler, deputy director of the Shark Research Institute in Princeton.
Sand tiger shark
Sand tiger sharks, along with sandbar sharks, are species that occupy the "surf zone," according to Keith Dunton, associate professor of biology at Monmouth University. "Human interactions with these species are relatively rare, since the sharks typically will sense us before we sense them," Dunton said.
This warm-water shark species is increasing its prevalence off New Jersey\'s coast. "Traditionally, it\'s not a shark that has really has spent a lot of time in New Jersey. But as climate change is warming up our ocean water, we\'re seeing some of these warm-water shark species move further north," said Bob Hueter, chief scientist for OCEARCH.
According to NOAA, common thresher sharks are found in temperate waters around the world. In the northwest Atlantic Ocean, they range from Newfoundland to Cuba. "They\'re way offshore and they\'re way down deep. They\'re not the kind of animal that\'s going to be spotted along the shore, unless it\'s sick or wounded," said Dean Fessler, of the Shark Research Institute in Princeton.
This highly migratory species lives in the open ocean and can reach 12 feet in length. Most of the winning sharks caught in fishing tournaments are makos and threshers, according to Dean Fessler, of the Shark Research Institute in Princeton.
According to the Shark Research Institute, blue sharks are "one of the most beautiful sharks," and the most heavily fished shark in the world. "Blue sharks cruise slowly at the surface with the tips of their dorsal and tail fins out of the water, and long pectoral fins extended," the Institute says.
Also known as the "great" white shark, members of this infamous species have "pinged" off the New Jersey coast with the help of research groups\' tracking efforts. They\'re around here in the summer months, typically on their way up to Cape Cod. Freya, tagged by OCEARCH, went right along the NJ coast and was close to the pier in Atlantic City in June 2021.
