Basement Water Problem

I have a sump pump in the basement, however I am getting water in another part of my basement. Outside drainage is an issue as the slope away from the house is only 1-2". Not sure how I can improve this as the area I live is very flat and foundation is at soil level. I did do some outside tiling with drainage tile to try and help eleviate the problem. However, I did get water again this early spring (March).

Do they make something that I can attach at the bottom of house siding to help direct water away from foundation???

Should I install an additional sump hole & pump in the corner where the problem is????

By the way, where I would install the sump pump is a finishted area with drywall & baseboard.


Wet & Frustrated!!!!!!!
