If you have a wet basement in one area with a poured foundation it may be from a crack
In poured concrete foundations, cracks and pipe penetrations are the most common entry points for seepage.
These openings can be readily sealed from the interior.
Epoxies or urethanes are pressure injected into the openings, penetrating the foundation through to the exterior, thereby cutting of the path of the seepage.
