When the high water table comes through the unsealed foundation to give you a wet basement
- The level of the water table varies greatly due to amount of rainfall, time of the year and type of soil that surface water drains through.
- The water table is generally higher in areas with high density soil related to clay content.
- The denser the soil is, the slower the movement of the water (percolation) of the water through the soil occurs.
- The rate at which the high water table descends is related to the percolation rate, which is related to soil density.
- When the water table rises, it does not just rise at your house, because it did not rain on your house only.
- The thing to understand here is that the high water table is part of the earth and cannot be graded away.
- High water tables are often above the level of basement floors which is why you get a wet basement.
A French drain is the best choice for wet basement waterproofing
- The French drain was named after Henry French and has been the basement waterproofing method of choice since 1859.
- The French drain basement waterproofing system is designed to prevent a wet basement.
- The French drain is installed inside the basement, below the floor, around the perimeter.
- This French Drain controls the water, delivers it to the sump pump(s), and discharges it out of the house.
