A wet basement is fixed with a French drain and sump pump
A French drain basement waterproofing system is installed underneath the basement floor on the inside perimeter of the wet basement.
The 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.
