Block basement leaking

What is the best repair for block basement water leaks? It appears to leak between the floor and walls in some places and through the walls in others.

Where do you live ?

What is the local topography? Does the surface water slope towards your home?

Preventing the water from entering in the first place is the far better option over pumping it out after it has entered. But controlling the water outside your house can be as simple as re-grading, paving or as extensive as trenching along the outside of the foundation to install a drainage system.
