The need for basement waterproofing is caused by a slow percolation rate
How does percolation occur? Water moves downward through openings in the soil to replenish aquifers under the ground.
Rainwater creates runoff that travels over the ground surface and helps to fill lakes and rivers.
A percolation test, commonly called a perc test, is a test to determine the absorption rate of soil.
A percolation test can help to determine if land will drain properly and whether a basement will flood.
Percolation tests would be done before a home is built.
In general, sandy soil will have a quicker percolation than soil with a high concentration of clay.
Here in New Jersey, we have a high content of clay in the soil of most inland areas.
