How a high water table causes a wet basement
The rain usually falls over a wide area of many square miles and this water goes into the earth at the same time.
Water tables can become elevated when they receive more water than they drain off.
When the water table rises, it does not just rise at your house, because it did not rain on your house only.
High water tables are often above the level of basement floors which is why you get a wet basement.
The thing to understand here is that the high water table is part of the earth and cannot be graded away.
A wet basement is fixed with a French drain and sump pump
A French drain wet basement waterproofing system is installed underneath the basement floor on the inside perimeter of the wet basement.
The wet basement waterproofing system relieves the hydrostatic pressure (water pressure) from the footing area.
The water enters the sump pit from the perimeter drains of the French drain, and then the sump pump pumps it up and out of the basement.
