Default Sealing old block walls

We recently bought an old home with a block foundation that has a moisture problem in the basement. I ripped the sheetrock off the wall in the basement and I have moisture seeping through the wall. I am currently working on rectifying the problem outside. My question is, what is the best product to seal the block wall on the inside?

You are on the right track by fixing the outside first.

As far as sealers, this is the best I've found;


UGL.com/DRYLOK


Russelville, Ky.. 40 to 45 minutes from me. Welcome to the forum, I hope to see you here again soon!

Thanks! I looked at Drylok and it seemed to be a great product. I had one guy come and look at it that told me to go to a mine supply store to purchase a sealant, but I checked them out and it seems to be major overkill.
