Wet basement problems are due to the age of the homes
During construction a tar based waterproofing is applied to the foundation before the backfill is done.
The tar substance is applied to the exterior of the concrete walls and is good for 30-40 years or so.
The tar coating is similar in substance and life to roofing shingles which also don’t last forever.
Once the tar is gone the foundation is no longer sealed and the porous concrete is laid bare.

A French drain controls water once it enters the foundation instead of preventing water from entering it.
A sump pump discharges the water from the building
