Barry, Check your landscaping, does your yard slope towards the hous? If it does, get a load of black dirt and slope the yard around your house away from the foundation this will allow water to drain away from the foundation. Secondly, about the holes and cracks in your basement walls, get some hydroulic cement and fill in these holes and cracks, this will help keep back the water. These tips may not solve your water problems 100%, but it's a start. Good luck
