I had my sewer line from the house to the street replaced and since then I have been getting a large amount of rain and ground water in my basement and it seems to be following the sewer line. The water is coming in my basement up from the floor in the area where the sewer line enters the house, and it also is coming up further inside the house in cracks in the floor above the sewer line.
This is much more than normal trickles of water, this can be up to like a gallon a minute type of water, that runs across the floor to a floor drain.
I am going to have a sump pump and drain tile system installed, but I don't like the idea of a channel along the sewer pipe that brings water to the foundation from 20-30 feet away in my yard.
Any ideas how to stop this????
