What Can You Do?
Do an exterior wall check for surface water next to foundation walls.
Water overflowing your rain gutters often runs down house foundations,
eroding soil or leaking into basements. Here are some things to
- Overflowing rain gutters, blocked with leaves or debris.
- Not enough gutter downspouts on the house, water overflowing
from too much volume.
down spouts discharging right next to house walls, not extended
far enough away.
around houses should slope away from foundation walls.
No obvious surface water leaks mean that sources are groundwater
under hydrostatic pressure. If external ground water level is above
basement floor level, basements act like a boat in a lake, where
moisture will force its way in through any crack or weak point.
Groundwater hydrostatic pressure forces seepage in, even with a

Older houses in town or basements without sump pumps are likely
connected to municipal sewer - storm systems. Basements below street
level can have stormwater pushed up through drains under hydrostatic

of its source, best solutions are designed to reduce hydrostatic
pressure with better drainage and to repair any foundation wall
cracks. Perimeter drain systems or grate drains relieve pressure,
directing waterflow away from basement or cellar areas. Groundwater
is drained via gravity to a sump pump pit then discharged externally.

type of drainage system is a below slab perimeter drainage system.
Below slab systems require partial removal of concrete floor slab
materials with installation of drainage pipe making it more expensive
than perimeter grate drains.
