You get a wet basement because the tar washed away
During construction a tar waterproofing is usually applied to the foundation before the backfill is done.
Tar is a very good waterproofing substance and has been used forever.
The tar applied to most homes degrades in 30-40 years or so.
Once the tar is gone the foundation is no longer sealed and the wet basement problems begin.
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.
