Default somebody on this planet show my old butt exactly how an interior drainage system...

..........and a sump pump AND wall anchors would,
---repair, waterproof any of the exterior cracks in the foundation wall
--remove/relieve lateral soil pressure, underground roots etc off the exterior foundation wall which CAUSED the cracks n wall to BOW IN and subsequent water in basement
--would stop/prevent mold, efflorescence etc on interior foundation wall


OUTSIDE... YouTube




INSIDE.... YouTube


If some moron installs wall anchors and an interior drainage system that would cost about $10,000--12,000 (let's say for two walls) then this nonsense would NOT stop the wall from moving in, would not stop further deterioration of the wall BECAUSE...... doing the inside crap does NOT remove/lessen would caused the wall to bow in, crack, leak, NONSENSE baby!


For the hell of it let's say wall anchors WOULD stop most or all inward movement, just to make some morons happy okay so what are THEY going to do on the inside of basement that would REPAIR--SEAL the exterior cracks in the dang foundation wall??????


Water WILL continue to enter the exterior cracks and weaken, deteriorate the stupid wall!!!!! And lol they're gonna tell us the basement was "WATERPROOFED"!!! Are you kidding? This is ignorant, misrepresentative BULLSHTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT, sue these sobs!


And what about the water that would still enter, don't think that could cause a mold problem inside?


Just because these idiots would cover part or all of the inside foundation wall with some plastic etc crrrrrap does NOT mean mold can't--won't grow aka become of a prrrroblem!


The INSIDE VIDEO...... you do NOT see the vertical CORNER cracks when you eyeball the inside of foundation wall do ya? NO! WATCH the outside vid, what the holy hllllll exists, is OPEN on the outside?


And what about that horizontal crack down low, top of first block up off floor?


C''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' ''''''''''''''''''mon!

Raising and sloping the grade OR ADDING 69 MILE LONG DOWNSPOUT EXTENSIONS does not fix, repair, waterproof the cracks! Does not remove any clay soil or tree roots etc that can cause cracks or wall to bow inward, yeah yeah YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH loll, adding longer extensions is fine and will help lessen the amount of water that would soak/expand clay soil BUTTTTTTTT, when it rains long enough that clay soil is still going to EXXXxxxxpand against the wall, oh yes it will, even if you raised the grade to the ROOF! It's not just the water coming out-of the downspout extensions, its also the water that........ FALLS outta the SKYYYYYY, extensions don't do squat about that. And if you add soil, build UP the grade you 'could' cause MORE problems for the wall. These walls weren't built to withstand a boatload of soil piled up against 'em. Not talking about adding x-amount of bags of top soil, pffft, like adding that is going to do anything for ya


So when 'some' structural engineers or city or home inspectors or some guy that was just released from prison says crap like, "Oh I don't see any corner cracks or horizontal cracks down low, that Mark guy is full of crap".... the friggin TRUTH is, has ALWAYS been, THEYYYYYYYYYY are full of shttttt


6th paragraph, said 6th...got that? I know some want to get back to playing their candy crush etc games loolol
Dwight Yoder Builders
...if you backfill with most--all GRAVEL against the stupid wall..... IT, prevents trapped water and saturated soil next to the foundation from building up horizontal pressure against the wall (lateral soil pressure)... this pressure will CRACK WALLS, CAUSE LEAKS, and in a worst case COLLAPSE THE WALL INWARD. WATCH VIDEOS, hellllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll lllllllllllllllllllloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Former home inspector 20 years apparently, he writes, "Basements that flood after a major storm are ALWAYS the result of poor drainage conditions.."
Wet Basement Blues? Easy Way to Fix a Wet Basement | The Money Pit


Really? Did i read that correctly....huh?


Well Mr former inspector, here's a leaky basement that already has a raised and sloped grade for ya, it ONLY leaked on long heavy rains aka, MAJOR STORMS
YouTube


You see what he says to, ummmmmmmmm lol, check right?


So don't check for a possible crack in foundation wall, don't check for possible deteriorated rod holes, don't check and see if lateral line is clogged, busted etc, don't check to see if an existing sump pump went out, don't check and see if water entered through-around a basement window, doors etc etc, NONE of that, ALWAYS the grade, poor drainage huh, pfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffft!
