I put in a french drain and it wasn't too hard. I used a hammer drill and small sledge with chisel to cut the basement floor about 5-6 inches wide. Dug out enough to put in drainage pipe with holes facing down and filled withg pea gravel. All of drain led to sump hole with galvanized liner about 18" by 3' deep. cemented over the drains. Never had another problem!
