yes, the sump pumps work, yet I rarely hear them go on (had a plumber check them and he replaced one that didn't work). I thought orig. they were for water that came in thru the outside stairs to the basement with wooden cellar doors (2), after a hard rain( I have not replaced them just caulked them and they are much better)
I have only recently understood they are for undergound water? Contracters vear away from my problem. They tell me to find a stone mason. I have not found one as of yet. Than I read alot about a bentonite slurry being put into the ground and have wondered if this is the way to go.
I have a few thousand to spend fixing this, but I don't have a truckload. I am not going to jack the house up and put a new foundation under it either.I am thinking of selling the place in a cple years ( In wi.) , so I want it to be able to sell but not break my budget.I want it to be safe.
I am concerned with a constant waterfall of water coming thru when it rains , I'll loose that wall and end up with my house falling down? Maybe I am over reacting?I don't know the legal aspects of what has to be fixed on a house to even sell it either?
