I have a sump pump & it works fine. I went in the attic after 3 days rain & its BONE dry.
I shored up dirt around my houses foundation.
I had my eaves troughs all redone because house is 1947. The water table is high here, but if thats the problem, the sump pump would hit it first.
Im still getting water seeping into the basement along the walls, AT the FLOOR LEVEL.
It seeps in, in two big puddles on north wall.
ALL I can think, is that the neighbors yard is HIGH (garden) & its draining into my yard.
Im thinking about putting up some kind of barrier but I dont know WHAT. The water does pool in the backyard but away from the house. The house obviously has a good grade, for about ten feet, from the house wall.
ANy suggestions are welcome, especially regarding an affordable barrier.8 AnswersMaintenance & Repairs3 months ago
