Help!!! I am having some basement drainage issues and need some assistance.
I bought a house built in the 40's about 5 years ago. Shortly after moving in after a rainy weekend I discovered a mud slide in my basement coming from the crack in the wall that is there from the drainage system. The company that put in the system came back out and ended up covering the crack up. I then started getting some leakage from another area of my basement and had a different company come out and put in a sump pump. We recently just had another big rain which seems to happen every couple of years and now mud has come out of the new drainage system that was put in. It was discovered while putting in the new drainage system that the house does not have a footer. It is held up by rods.
The new company came out and scoped the outside drainage system where the water goes from the gutters and everything was clear and no cracks.
I am looking for some assistance on how I can keep my basement dry. Is there a special way to install the drainage system when you do not have a house footer? I have tried searching on the internet but have not found anything helpful.
Thanks for any assistance you can offer.
