How's your water bill?

There are two possibilities right off the top.

1. Your water supply is leaking someplace. How is your water bill? Is it a lot more than your neighbors? (This is a good way to introduce yourself, bring along a 6 pack.)

2. How is your home landscaped? If you have any berms, plantings, etc that could direct water towards your foundation, this can be a problem. All of your grading around the house should direct water AWAY from the foundation.

Of course, by the nature of your question, I have to assume you live in a NON-ARRID part of the world. If you live in TEXAS, all bets are off.

BEE THE WATER> figure out where the water could be coming from... Do you have a sprinkler system that's leaking?

Does your neighbor have all of their water running onto your property?

Is your crawlspace ventilated properly? (LOTS OF VENTILATION IS GOOD!)
