The Clay Bowl Around your House causes a wet basement
When your home was constructed the ground was excavated so the foundation could be built.
That hole in the ground is bigger than the foundation by a few feet on all sides.
After the foundation is built a tar like substance is usually applied before the excavation is filled back up.
That backfill dirt is loose and creates a permanent void that water is constantly trying to refill. This is the clay bowl around your house.
The clay bowl around the foundation will always be looser and absorb more water than the undisturbed soil around it.
The water fills up the clay bowl around the perimeter quickly because the soil is not as compacted.
All of that water lies against your foundation and creates an artificial water table around your home.
You can’t stop the wet basement unless you control the water
When we say a French drain we mean is a perforated pipe used for underground drainage and a sump pump.
A French drain wet basement waterproofing system will capture the water and drain the water into a sump pump pit
A French drain is unlikely to ever clog due to the fact that it is not sitting underneath several feet of soil.
