House 4 sale, they had other estimates.... yeah, from the nitwit interior basement system scammers who wanted MORE money and who would NOT have stopped further water from entering the exterior cracks in block walls which IS where the water was entering into the hollow block and then was seen inside basement only at the bottom of wall/basement floor, mold and efflorescence on some blocks inside.
YouTube
homeowner was bs'd into pouring concrete with wire mesh, then after that moron attempt that supposedly was going to stop water from entering they slapped asphalt over settled concrete lolol
YouTube


So these interior system jerks AND those who get paid $$$ to help push these jerks onto unknowing homeowners, like home improvement radio show hosts, are simply LYING to ya, if you cannot see what has been and still is going on in this stinky business then you need special-help.

Good morning Mark. Well it looks like you are still at it.
People don't learn until it is to late using these blocks for a foundation when not done right, do they.
You think they would have at least back-filled with the right material and applied a proper water-proofing.
They must of had a sump pump working overtime in there. They must like recycling the water, pump it out, comes back in, pump it out.

lol Marcel, yeah same old knothead crap. Most homeowners still getting the lies from interior drainage system companies, yes sir. Like this one, they leak at-near the corner because of those exterior cracks in block wall yet the interior system companies do NOT care to or simply do not want to be honest with homeowners and instead dream up all kinds of nonsense to sell them a drainage system and sump pump.

They probably get kick backs for selling sump pumps.

if you are on Facebook lol you should be able to watch this video,
IMAGINE if you will, a concrete basement floor here, in video (there isn't it's a dirt floor) and imagine other homeowners basements/crawls with concrete floors. Ok so you see that pipe? Let's say there IS a concrete basement floor here and the pipe is under the floor, or a water line etc. Mark Anderson - Mark Anderson posted a video to his timeline.



See how water is accumulating, RISING UP? Uh huh. Ok so quite a few folks have floor cracks or gaps along interior perimeter where the bottom of the foundation wall MEETS the floor.


Can you imagine, SEE how the supposed HYDROSTATIC pressure problem that interior companies bs many about, the water accumulation problem can be due to a blockage in a pipe, which was the case here, less than $200 to fix.


Or sometimes a crack or pin hole etc may occur in a pipe under the basement floor and then water can escape it and accumulate and rise under the floor, ya dig?


Many do not need an interior drainage system, hello!
You need to take a little time, have some patience and find someone who who has experience and will try and FIND aka identify your actual-problem!


The interior companies who almost always tell you, bs you, n say crap like you have a hydrostatic pressure problem under the basement floor caused by blocked, old DRAIN TILES when that is not the case baby.


How about this block foundation wall, like it?
YouTube
Foundation systems of Mich was here before my old bitchy *** lol, they told her, tried bs'ing her into wall anchors and an interior system, then cover/hide the wall which cheap O vinyl etc crap.


The cause (s) of the cracks, bowed wall, leaky basement, deteriorated blocks (especially the bottom blocks) is due to lateral soil pressure and underground tree roots sooooo, installing wall anchors and an interior system will NOT remove, relieve, lessen ANY lateral soil pressure 'n roots. lolol PLUS, water would continue to enter the many exterior cracks in the block wall further deteriorating the wall/blocks, oh yes.


Got milk?

Found this while running new downspout lines on the other side of my house this summer. The leader feeding this line is just outside the picture to the left. Just shook my head when I found it. This would make an interior system salesman salivate.

I waterproofed my house and it still flooded. Do I have to pay the contractor? | NJ.com
Same lies, same misrepresentation of actual-problems, same scam.


Salesman said, 'We needed the installed basement system....once the water finds a WAY IN it continues to take the path of least resistance"


This is one of the most overused LIES in this business!!!


Most basements leak (other than back-ups) due to "a WAY IN!".... as in this video YouTube ... and installing ANY type of interior basement system and sump pump does not, will not repair these exterior cracks/defects where the water is FINDING IT'S WAY IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! good god help them please
