What Causes Water In My Basement

There are several reasons why water may be present in your basement. Poor drainage can cause flooding in your basement and can occur if the surrounding land or area around the foundation does not have the necessary slope to direct water away. Weather conditions can also play a significant role, as excessive rain or melting snow can increase the likelihood of water infiltration. Another contributing factor to water in your basement is ineffective grading and the landscape is not properly leveled to direct water away from the foundation. Any of these factors can result in water accumulation in your basement.

Acculift's Solution

The solution to combat hydrostatic pressure leading to water intrusion through the floor or floor/wall joint is the installation of a drain tile system. This system effectively collects the water around the perimeter of the basement floor and conveys it to a sump pit. The sump pump then discharges the water to the exterior of the property, preventing it from infiltrating the basement. To install this system, it is necessary to break out the floor where the drain tile and pit will be located. While this solution is highly effective in keeping the basement dry, it does require the removal of flooring and drywall, as well as any other finishes in the vicinity of the drain tile and pit installation. Additionally, this method can also help capture water that enters through foundation wall cracks, providing a comprehensive solution to water intrusion in basements.

Alternative Route for Water

The installation of a water drainage system will help avoid major damage to your foundation. Drain tile acts as an alternative route for water to flow, rather than being trapped between the soil and your foundation.
