slab seepage tutorial for those that don't get to see this as often as i
this is what to look for
as you can see many of the weep holes are blocked this is a deficiency worthy of reporting

Nice summary
by Bill Rose
The way I teach this is the following. Want a dry foundation? Design your building and design the excavation. Create a tent roof like the building roof, dig the excavation, and put the tent roof over the excavation. Then wait. Maybe a year, maybe more. After every heavy rain go back to the hole and see if the hole is dry. If, after a long wait the hole remains dry then build your building and put it in the hole. If your hole gets wet, well, why would anyone want to put a perfectly good building in a wet hole? This is the design project I give to students: design a dry hole in the ground. Not easy.

 Nice pic's Bill, lol.

 Barry, zipped through that article........zip zip.
 Don't agree with some claims  Lips Sealed

 But looks like Matt K learned something I've been trying to inform 'em about, the dimpled membrane/panels  can get pulled down as the backfilled soil SETTLES........his post and 2 pics dated 10-18-2013

 Disagree for the NTH time on regarding.....adding and sloping soil, sheesh!

 After many think they solved their leaky basement, and some sell their house claiming this, who do they CALL when the dang thing leaks again.....lol. Yeo, peeps like my dumb azz and most often it is THE BUYER.

 They want to know WHY it leaks so ummm duhh, as usual, I FIND, locate the problem or, sometimes problemS

 Most often that problem is a crack, cracked parging etc in basement wall, and had been there ALL ALONG.
 As it eventually WIDENS, then umm the basement begins to leak more--often.

 Just because a few weeks, few months etc has gone by AFTER regarding or extending downpout ext's and they had some decent rains with no water in basement does not at all means the sob was fixed, cuz how does anyone fix something without, knowing what/where the actual problem is! 

 Some homeowners get water in basement just due--to 1 or more openings ABOVE GRADE LEVEL such as, open, cracked mortar joints-bricks, gaps under,around basement windows or doors etc so, HOW WOULD 'regrading' tuckpoint those cracked mortar joints or seal gaps etc around, under windows and doors!!!

 Same goes for some homeowners whose ONLY problem is a blockage in the lateral line, regarding doesn't SNAKE the clean out!!!

 How some recommend and claim to homeowners that 80-90% of all leaky basements can be solved by regarding is completely full O shtt, INCOMPETENT on this-subject........sorry but they are.

 3 1/2 decades of seeing all this crap, going through all of it!  See it over and over, get calls, buyer, seller whoever tells me they keep getting water in even AFTER someone previously regarded, raised and sloped the soil or added long downspout ext's or mudjacked concrete slabs. REEEE----dikkkk-O-lous stuff, really is.

 B Dry Water-diverting was here, lady was getting water in basement, just one area ya see in photos.
B Dry was NOT at all interested in removing any DRYWALL that WOULD have helped ANYONE correctly and honestly diagnose the actual problems and, find MOLD!
http://picasaweb.google.com/101049034584960315932/BasementWaterproofing25  <--the ESTIMATE
 
 See what was BEHIND (and on) the Drywall etc?Huh?Huh??

 Look, lol, IF B Dry or ANY other interior drainage system HAD been installed here or many other homes just like this,
A) water would still be entering because.......they would not have waterproofed the crack, rod holes etc and instead just installed an interior water diverting system
B) there would be MORE mold growing on wall, on drywall etc because.....they would NOT have stopped the water from WHERE it was coming in

Here's the small job, same house......and B Dry wanted MORE $$$$
http://picasaweb.google.com/101049034584960315932/BasementWaterproofing35

Mark Anderson isn't bulshtting, waaay too many interior system companies who do INDEED misrepresent peoples actual problems and actual SOLUTION or, don't even bother to diagnose the problem correctly and just install the ONE they they do BUTT, they claim they give many options to solve problem....bulshht.

There is ONE DAMMM fix for THAT dammmmm problem, period....hellloooo!

 The interior drainage chumps install their crap, just like what almost happened in photos above, more often than not the FLOOR or most of the basement floor remains dry for awhile until the cracks, cracked parging etc gets wider and homeowners are so BLIND (sorry most are) and since they don't see water on floor since system was installed they think the inside system chumps solved the problems, but they did NOT. NOPE!!!!!

 Then these companies claim shtt like, 'Oh we've solved 50,000 wet basements etc'....all BULLSHTT.
Yeah, there are a FEW who may need some sort of interior system or actually, mostly, sump pumps when the dumb az house was BUILT on a dammm SPRING, something like that
