No spam. We had a similar problem with our block
wall basement where the basement produced puddles
days after a heavy rain.I tested the voids in the
blocks by punching a hole in one with a star drill
and the water shot out three feet until the void
drained down. We opted to go with the dig out
around the inside perimeter and tile and pea
stone it. We also drove holes into the voids in
every block and alloweed the blocks to drain into
the new drain tile which we connected to our
existing sump hole and replaced the concrete. We
just moved from the house and for the past 20
years we had not one drop of water leak in.
