Basement water problems are about as old as the structures they reside in. Water will leak into a basement through any opening it can, including your walls, floors, and the joints between them. Water can even pass through the concrete itself -- which is one reason why basements are notoriously damp, humid spaces.

This involves applying a neagative-side sealant on your interoir walls and floors to seal out the moisture.The logic behind this is that a special waterproof paint or hydraulic cement will create a vapor barrier on the basement walls that will prevent moisture from traveling through and passing into the air. It's cheap and it sounds good.
Unfortunately, negative-side sealants do not remove the water sitting around the foundation, they will usually fail within the first couple months or after a heavy rainfall, allowing this water sitting against the foundation to find its way into your basement.
To do this requires a complete removal of all soil around the entire perimeter of the basement. Anything on top of that soil- including foliage, stairs, sidewalks, gardens, porches, or other landscaping must be removed so the expensive and invasive process can begin.
This type of installation has been used for many decades—a drain of this type is generally installed when the home is built.
Installs on top of the basement floor with a drain that runs along the basement walls. Collects water and sends it to a sump pump system.
No jackhammering is required, and the installation is safe for a monolithic basement floor.
Installs underneath the basement floor, with a drain that runs along the basement walls. Collects water and sends it to a sump pump system.
The system is easy to service, and it can collect water leaking from the walls or windows as well.
