Like many other people I have water in my basement. My problem is that the home was sold to me with a "finished" and "Dry" basement, meaning there was humiditiy but no standing water or large amounts of water coming in (this turned out to be a lie). I had a company come out and do sodium bentonite injections and install a "pressure release system" inside with somewhat of a result but still with problem areas. I had friend of mine with some considerable landscaping experience come to look at the outside and he said the only way to fix this was with a new drain tile system. I went to the home show and everybody there had nothing but bad things to say about drain tile. Anyone got two cents to chime in that has no stake in the "dry basement" pitch of inside pressure release systems, or no stake in a drain tile system for that matter? I am going to do the work myself.
